I’m constantly having to pull magenta casts out of photos. Hope this helps.

Great article. There’s a lot of good information here, though I did want to let you know something – I am running Ubuntu with the circulating beta of Firefox, and the look and feel of your blog is kind of bizarre for me. I can read the articles, but the navigation doesn’t function so well.
