I have an Olympus 8080 camera. All my pictures which have significant ambient light turn out with a strong cyan tint in the RAW file. See example below. No problems when strobe is main light source. I can't figure out how to get rid of this tint using Adobe Elements 6 without turning to black and white. Is there something I can do when taking the picture to not generate it? If not, is there something I can do in Elements to get rid of it.
Take a look here
Restore Reds where I mention some ways to remove the cast, but it is in Photoshop. I think Elements has some similar things. Also shoot RAW in the Olympus (though the recycle is slow) Lastly, use strobes and get close, that is the best way.

Open the RAW file in Camera Raw, select the White balance eyedropper and then click on something in the foreground that should be white or grey.
That should provide a good starting point to then fine tune with the temp/tint sliders.

In elements 5 I used: Enhance, adjust color, remove color cast. This seems to be the same function, though possibly not as strong as that you used in RAW. Since getting the second strobe I use this very seldom and now tweak using layers and levels
