The uplights come with a "magenta" pre-set. This color is the hardest to describe because ambient light can really strongly effect how your uplighting looks. In some venues it may look
more pink and in others more purple. Other things like personal preferences (is that pink or purple to you?), and camera settings can really change the look of the magenta. The good news
is you can start with the easy pre-set ("C5"), and then if you don't like it you can adjust using the custom color feature.
Here's how you make the lights magenta:
1. Plug uplight in. Wait 1-2 seconds for it to light up.
2. Press the Menu button a few times until you see "C".
3. Press the "up" or "down" keys to change through the color choices. When you get to C5 press "enter" to set the color to magenta.
Here are some photos sent in from our customers who have used the magenta color setting:

Weddings Unlimited by UYD sent in this photo from one of a few weddings they recently rented lights for. They had multiple events over a 2 week period so they were able to extend their first rental for an additional week. This saves lots of money and is 1 less trip back to a UPS drop-off place to return them. If you have multiple events over back-to-back weekends, email customer service to get an extension on your rental to save big on your wedding and event lighting!
