7.) Use an Image Editing Software (like Photoshop) to Fix “Levels”

After Fixing “Levels”

So what do you do if you want to take nice, non-yellow pictures of your plants under an HPS grow light?

Method 7 HPS glasses are the “standard” though very pricey, and there are a few other less expensive models that help block out the yellow of an HPS light that are 90% as good! Although I slightly prefer the Method 7’s to these glasses, it’s so cheap to get these I feel like they’re probably the best choice if you want to see your plants in true color under HPS grow lights. If I had purchased these ones first, I probably never would have gotten the glasses by Method 7 at triple the price!

HPS grow lights make it hard to take nice cannabis plant pictures. Photographing under HPS lights often make plants look yellow or orange in pictures. To make things worse, HPS grow lights that use a magnetic ballast can also add strange black bands or lines to your pictures and videos, which you don’t see with your eyes.

Basically, in the Levels screen…

Probably the easiest way to reduce the yellow color in pictures is by changing the “White Balance” setting on your camera or cell phone to use the “Tungsten” setting. If that’s not available, the next best is “Fluorescent.”

Use Camera Settings to help correct the lighting. For example DSLR cameras usually allow you to adjust the white balance so that it corrects for the yellow. In point-and-shoot cameras, and even many cell phones, you still usually have a “Fluorescent,” “Incandescent,” or “Tungsten” setting which helps give you more natural color in your pics. Sometimes these settings appear under “white balance.”

First of all, don't over-react. Before you force your child into a professional drug treatment program that you may not be able to afford and they may not even need, take a step back and try to evaluate the situation.

If you find a larger quantity of processed marijuana buds in your home, someone either has an expensive habit or they are selling weed to their friends.
