I just bought a canon rebel eos T6i.
The pictures I took yesterday looked great when viewed in the camera.
When downloaded to the PC, there was a mauve "screen" over the whole photo.
If you know how to remove the "screen" to unmask the true colors please share how.
Thank you.

I found the answer to my own question.
The photos were CR2 files. For future photos, I changed the camera quality setting from RAW to jpeg.
I still have to convert the pictures.

What photo editing software were/are you using? Most modern software should be able to handle RAW files. Unless you are concerned with space on your SD card I would recommend using the mode that records both a RAW image and JPEG. You will be losing some image quality going from RAW to JPEG.

Photo editing software: Picasa
I can't figure out how Picasa converts the Memorial weekend pics/CR2 files to JPEG.
Thank you for your advise: I changed the camera quality mode to both RAW and JPEG.
Thank you for taking the time to answer.
