With Tiger Barbs the males will have more intense coloration and a very distinctive deep red or bright orange nose. The dominant male will outshine the other males.
There are numerous members that are really into Tigers and will likely chime in with more info.

Nice Albinos you have there.

Pic #1 Definitely female.
Pic #3 Definitely male.
Pic #2, pretty sure the male is labeled right. The "female", possibly.

Most fish can change the intensity of their colors by mood.
Washed out = Stress
Vivid = Dominance
