    A screenshot showing us what you are seeing could be helpful.

    Have you opened any of the .orf files in the editor? Do you still see the purple tint?

    Here you go-  The .orf photos have a purple tint that doesn't show up in a preview or any of the adobe products.

    Are you willing to share your RAW file for me to take a look at?

    Of course-  How shall I get them to you?

    I see you are using Dropbox. Just post the download link from it here.

    Here’s a link to 3 pairs of photos, JPEG and RAW (.orf)

     
    I also put in the .psd file that I exported out of ON1 to Photoshop. 
     
    Thanks!

    I definitely see the color cast but I don't think it is a Photo RAW problem. I think it is a combination of the lousy lighting in the museum and the white balance the camera used to take the photo. Another factor is that you have your camera set to use the sRGB color space which is more limited than the Adobe RGB space which should be an option in your camera's settings.

    I was able to remove the color cast with the Temperature and Tint sliders in the Develop panel. I also tried using the Eye Dropper tool to click on the white in the Hamilton Standard logo on the P-51's prop. Try them both and pick the one you like the best.

    This is with the Eye Dropper set Temperature and Tint and I opened the shadows a bit.

    Applying NoNoise AI to remove the Color noise also helped.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to look at everything.  I will make those adjustments in my camera.  The thing I'm trying to decide on is whether or not to use ON1. When I open up the same RAW files in Photoshop and Lightroom, there is not a purple tint on my RAW images.  They look more or less like the JPEG's but with better detail. I would rather start with that as my base, rather than have to try and "fix" every raw file in ON1.  I love the organizational capability of ON1 and the ability to use Dropbox directly without having to re-import my files, I'm just wondering why ON1 is adding the purple tint information to my RAW files within the program?  As I mentioned, that's not an issue with any other program, and ON1 is not adding purple tint to the JPEG files.   Any thoughts you have would be great.  Again, I appreciate your input and hopefully I can figure out a solution to this issue.  All the best!

    .orf  are raw files so, in camera color profile and camera white balance shouldn't impact them. In camera profiles should only impact the camera generated JPGs. It may be the Camera profile being used. If you have been using the default On1 Standard profile you might try using a different one. Personally I would start with the Linear Raw and make adjustments as needed.

    Copy-  I'll play around with that and see what happens.-  Thanks!

    Great answers

    I got a purple cast when I tried opening up a very dark orf image from EM5 mk2 using Linear Profile but then corrected this by changing colour temperature. So it may be an issue with how On1 handles dark images from orf files that other programs handle differently. Some of the other viewing may be built-in JPG preview.

    In general I have not seen any major issues with On1 handling RAW images from the various OMD cameras I have had over the years.
