Post How to take pictures of certain colors?

Need some help!! I have these dark purple koozies and every time I take a picture of them, they look blue. I have the same problem when I take pictures of my hot pink ribbon, it looks red. What can I do to fix this??

YOU NEED A PHOTO EDITING PROGIE THAT WILL LET YOU ADJUST (sorry kid left caps on) color levels; photo shop elements will do this ... also the quality of you camera pays into it a little

if you have a couple of pics that need to be fixed I will fix it for you... you can send them to me. Pm me for email... preferably NOT resized and be sure your camera resolution is set HIGH

I acutally have photoshop elements. Do you adjust the color levels with the hue/saturation?

I found an article about color balance. It might help.

Understanding White Balance

Here is how I take picture of purple or lt orchid ribbon.

On my camera, there is a AWB setting (color balance). I change it to "flash light" even I use day light bulb without flash light. This way, there'll be more pink tone in the picture.

Make sure you're using natural lighting. I like bright shade, or take them in the late afternoon when the sun doesn't cast harsh shadows.

Try some shots. If the color is off, you can adjust the color balance in the camera or use photoshop. My usual routine is to adjust the exposure & offset, then color balance.
