Colors on screen in PS7.0 is not similar when viewing the file after its saved.

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by Morten Holberg Nielsen, Jan 4, 2004.

  1. I make a picture in PS 7 and choose some colours that looks good. After
    saving and opening the file in another program the colours are all
    different.

    Why is that?

    Your photoshop is set to work on and save an image in a certain attached
    colorspace. Your other program is ignoring this colorspace and discards it
    all together. It's a common nuicense.

    You can take the rather Draconian measure of turning off color management,
    but I would not recommend this for a variety of reasons.

    On a PC, a better alternative is to use sRGB as your working space (in the
    Color Preferences dialog), and calibrate your monitor using the Adobe Gamma
    Control Panel. This will make the Adobe and your other applications match
    pretty closely. On a Macintosh use Colormatch or Apple RGB as your working
    space.

    If you don't care about color management, turn it off in photoshop by going
    to Edit, Color Settings, and in the settings drop down menu, select Color
    Management Off.
