I have photos taken with a canon 400d with sRGB colour profile set in the camera. However when these or any other photos from any camera are viewed in iPhoto they have a yellow colour cast. I also have the canon Digital Photo Professional software installed and when i view these photos in DPP they look exactly as the scene that i captured. Example below.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this and have iPhoto show the pictures correctly without the colour cast?

Thanks

Are you shooting in RAW? If you are, it could be that iPhoto is not reading the WB information in the RAWs that DPP can.

Try correcting the WB in iPhoto and see if that helps.

Well it sounds like a pre set option in iphoto that is causing the warming effect... try to search options and stuff.. it worse comes to worse you can just tone down the warming effect a bit and it will look like it did out of the camera.

You need someone with a Mac and iPhoto. Not me I'm afraid. Maybe try some other software?

I have a Mac and iPhoto(don't use it) but when I tried it I never got this problem. It seems very odd that WB adjustments make the printouts come out wrong because that would mean that iPhoto is processing the images fine and is just displaying them wrong. Very strange.

I've noticed other things on my mac coming out with a odd yellow cast, like pictures viewed in quicklook and weather widgets, but pictures view in preview have the correct white balance. So might it have something to do with my system? Would it be worth asking a "Mac genius" at a store, I have two nearby :D ? (I live in manchester).

Definitely something wrong with your Mac then. Yep, go ask a genius!
