    I have an HTC Desire HD phone, and lately I've noticed I am having some issues with taking photos around natural light. I took a picture today that had it looking like everything was blue. Similarly, I took a couple photos and videos this weekend over New Years and they also looked blue. If I take a photo inside with indoor lighting the pictures are perfect and beautiful.

    I'm wondering if there is a specific setting you need for outdoor shots. The blue tinted photos were shot without flash. I tried to take photos again tonight after dusk, using flash and both "daylight" and "cloudy" white balance (I've always left it on the factory settings)

    I'm not sure what all is needed to help further with this, so if you could let me know of any further details you require to answer this (if you do) I'll be happy to provide them for you.

    Thanks

    No need to apologise! :)

    If you're willing to spend a little Camera Zoom FX is a pretty good camera replacement app.

    The only thing it misses is touch to focus, but other than that, it's amazing!

    Yeah, it is ok. I do prefer to be able to select the area I want to focus on though. It can help balance the exposure of pics with very light/dark areas in them.

    Still a very good app though. :)

    It may be something to work on. This blue tints for outdoor pictures is starting to annoy me. Someone suggested I should update my HTC software from my PC, but I'm not entirely sure how to do that, so I shall have to google search that lol.
