    Yesterday I opened a image in PS and it shows as if was in grey scale. I
    cheked every thing I could think about and could'n find what was wrong.
    I see the thumbnail whith Bridge as a colored image but as soon as it opens
    is seems as grey scale one.
    The image is refered as RGB 8 on the window bar and the filters and Adjust
    commands are all as usual for RGB images (not greyed).
    The PC is from a school, sone changed a preference or some thing else that I
    am not able to find. What can it be?

    I love this kind of puzzle. I'm guessing it's the monitor profile settings
    in the system control panel. Quite Photoshop, run Adobe Gamma and specify a
    gamma of 2.4 and any RGB color primaries. Then start Photoshop again and see
    if your color comes back. If that doesn't work, try brandy.

  3. I'm sure you meant to type a gamma of 2.2...

  4. Maybe Bridge is using "thumbs.db" from windows? And this file does not
    automaticly update after converting to grayscale...
    Just a guess...

    Thanks but no. No for all the answers. I change the user from student to
    teacher or Administrator and teh image opens as usual, in full color. I
    should have told this in the first post, sorry.
    As well Illustrator shows normal images for the User student, and monitor
    gamma is the same for it or for internet, word.
    The same image pasted into Word shows in colors.
    That's why I think it is some preference.
