Auto Color Off?

I haven't used it in a while, but I stumbled across Auto Color last week and got a weird effect. Everything is changed to an orange tone, no matter what picture. Here's what I mean:

Before: http://img2.timeinc.net/people/i/200...ashian300b.jpg

After: http://i45.tinypic.com/aylu0k.png

I'm stumped at this one. Any thoughts?

Re: Auto Color Off?

Auto color can give you some funny results depending on the image....

Have you checked where your white and black point are set?.

The black and white point is at their absolutes. I've been trying several different images and am getting the same result regardless of other settings.

Check and see what your auto curve options are set to. My guess is that you have an orange color set in either your midtones, highlights or shadows.
Normally it should look like the attached

Re: Auto Color Off?

Try opening up your auto options in curves or levels and see what you have set as your default.
e.g. Enhance per channel contrast etc...changing that will give you very different auto color adjustments .
Hopefully some of the more technically clever people on this forum will be able to give you some help.

Re: Auto Color Off?

Thanks ksparticus and Matilda for the additional settings info. I usually start with default Auto Color/Levels and it either works or not (now I will dig into the settings when necessary).
