Pictures look funny all chrome ghostly looking

I have all my setting correct in the menu for pictures but when i get a text message with a picture or if i take a picture it look all funny chrome and ghostly white looking.          I click camera and then options there

 

default flash  on

image stabilization on

white balance    sunny

picture size      large

picture quality normal

color effect     normal

geotagging      disabled

 

I don't understand is there a glitch in the software or a problem with the blackberry or do i have a setting incorrect because i would really like to see a color picture normal not like a night vision chrome ghostly white picture.. If anyone knows whats wrong any help would be kuwl......

Re: Pictures look funny all chrome ghostly looking

Change the picuture quality to "Superfine" and you should see an improvement.  I also have my White Balance set to Automatic.  If you're taking shots inside or outside really helps to determine which White Balance setting to use.  I've also used the Incandescent option for White Balance when taking pictures inside and have been very pleased with the results.

Re: Pictures look funny all chrome ghostly looking

That is weird.  I take it that all pictures you take with your Storm look like that?  Do you have any good quality pictures that were not taking with your Storm stored on your PC?  If you do, copy one or two over to your Storms media card.  Do the pics copied from the PC to the Storm display like they are night vision pics?

Re: Pictures look funny all chrome ghostly looking

I don't want to sound obnoxious, (really), but did you remove the protective plastic from the lens and flash that shipped with the phone? Or, possibly you are using a protective skin that doesn't fit quite right? Hey, I'd hate to think that it could be that simple and didn't speak up. Good luck with all.

Based on that reaction, I guess it was right to point out the obvious. Good luck.

Re: Pictures look funny all chrome ghostly looking

Its not the plastic cause i only have invisibleshield which is a protector and i don't think they would sell something that would mess up your phone...... Off or on it doesn't make a difference cause it did it right after i bought it when i took off the plastic when i took it out of its package.....thanks for the post though stay kuwl Kaulfurst....

Check the following setting:  Options/Advanced Options/Accessibility.  Make sure the Color Contrast setting is set to Normal.

Re: Pictures look funny all chrome ghostly looking

Ha that was it, I wounder why it makes the pictures look weird I changed it cause it made the icon page look kuwl but it shouldn't effect the pictures.........   Nice job Storm9530 I wounder on the next update they could make a option to where you can customize cert-in things u want and than it wont effect the whole phone cause with it on it makes the icons white instead of all black which i thought it looked better. Thanks storm9530.
