Hi I have a canon g7x mark ii. When I take photos on my camera they look nice and clear but when I export them to my iPhone or my MacBook the quality changes. I  It’s like a brown looking vignette or sone type of  Film look over the photos. I take the photos in the P mode and send them to my computer by using a connector. I’m not sure what to do.

Can you upload an example here?

Just a guess... Maybe you have the wrong white balance selected? There is info about changing them on page 78 of the user manual. Under some lighting conditions you'll get better results setting a custom white balance, which is described on page 79 of the manual.

There also is a monochrome/sepia setting. You'll find info about that on pages 63 and 80 of the manual.

If we could see an example, there might be something else we could suggest.

Thank you. Here is an example. The photo just looks tan but on the camera it is nothing like this

Another example. I should this as well. On the image on my camera the shires are really white and clear but once exported the quality visit the same at all. I did my best to take a photo of the cameras pictures. The exported photos background is really tan looking and dark

Here it's the display on the back of the camera that's lying to you. It's not a fault with that display... it's just that this type of display is limited in resolution and dynamic range. If you can display a "histogram" instead, that gives you better info about the image's tonalities.

But I also think the image is better than you think. Maybe whatever else you're using to view it isn't that accurate either.

The image might be slightly underexposed so I used Photoshop to brighten it up slightly...

In this case there isn't any color problem. The flash seems the dominant light source and the camera rendered it pretty accurately. I didn't do any color adjustment at all... just overall exposure adjustment.
