Where are you uploading the photos to?
Or do you mean opening the file in Elements?  (which simply means your display profile is bad)

no I'm not uploading to another site. I'm trying to edit a photo I uploaded to elements from my computer. as soon as the photo opens in elements its tinted pink. Its a photo I took that I'm trying to edit in elements. I've tried looking for a display profile but don't see where that's at?

You're just opening the image. There is no "upload" involved.  You only upload when you are sending data to another computer.

The display profile is set in the OS display settings.

yes you are right I do just "open" the image in Photoshop elements. This computer is less than 1 week old. I looked in the OS display settings and adjusted but still had issue. I also am able to "open" a photo in other programs such as paint.net with no pink tint to the photos. and also online Photoshop programs I just downloaded that I've used in the past with no issues. Its only the elements that are giving it the photos a pink tint. I also unistalled and reinstalled elements with no success in fixing this issue.

I figured it out.. it wasn't my computer at all but it was in Photoshop elements. Its auto set up for "always optimize colors for computer screens" under the edit tab - color settings - then choose no color management. and it was fixed.

Thanks for your help Chris. I'm relieved to know it wasn't my new computer :)

No, you still have a problem but you've hidden it temporarily.

Applications that don't use the display profile won't have a problem, but won't display color accurately (like paint.net).
Applications that use the display profile will look wrong just like Elements, because the profile associated with your display in the OS doesn't match your actual display.

The problem is still there - your display profile is still incorrect.  You still need to fix the display profile on your system.
