I keep noticing that most of the photos in the gallery look as tho they are sitting on pink fabric.

What you need to do is white balance the images to get the real color of the fabric which then means you also have the real color of the wood.

You may think they look better with that nice "warm" glow but it really isn't the true color.

I can do it in Photo shop but you all have digital cameras with the capability of setting the white balance of the camera.

Just saying...Maybe later, I will grab a photo from the gallery and show the difference.

For now, it's time to go home to Chinese food waiting for me!! Smiley

Good point. White is much more realistic than the warm glow that I thought looked nice.

Most smartphones and digital cameras have the white balance set to Auto. I never understood why someone would change that. My guess it was accidentally changed
