bertie, if you want, you can email me a photo and I can make an avatar for you. As long as my computer isn't on the fritz, it shouldn't take long. I definitely can't make you more comfortable with computers, but I don't mind making you an avatar. :D

You could always adjust the color post-processing to match the natural color as close as possible.
I know in Irfanview, you can go under the image menu, and then color correction, you see if you can make it appear closer to real color.

I'll try that, thanks. It turns out orange because my tank room only has medium lighting.

LMAO . I get the words not how it all works etc :lol:
Its a bunch of 1s and 0s, alligned in a certain fashion to make up information for whatever the file is. Super complex, but I'm going to school for the insides of computers and electronics so I understand it for the most part.
Those who say money can't buy happiness don't know where to find puffers.
