I have a few pictures taken in a nightclub, and I'm noticing that due to the lighting there, many of the pictures are quite "pink" in hue, or have some spots that are very "blown out" with pink light.  Any thoughts on the easiest way to retouch these photos so they are still usable?

What have you tried so far? Have you played with the white balance? Sounds like you need more green.

Question: #1 Did you take the photos in raw? #2 Did you use a flash? If yes to both edit them in photoshop bridge. And set it to flash. If you did not shot it in raw you might save the image by opeing a jpeg in bridge and setting the image to flash. With the later set up you will be limited to what editing you will be able to do. All lights give of a color. Some lights give off a different color.

But only you can see them. Maybe you should post a few, or link to them?

I did NOT actually take these in RAW. My studio stuff I do, but with so many nightclub shots and the quick turnaround needed, I shoot them in jpg. I DID use flash.
