    I am upgrading from Photoshop 7.01 to CS3. PS 7 had a program called
    Imageready where one could convert back and froth to and from the
    different default Mac and Windows gamma values....
    CS3 no longer has Imageready, so how does one convert an image from one
    gamma value to another in CS3??? I do not want to have to get Adobe
    Fireworks, thjeir Imagereadt replacement, but prefer to do it in CS3
    itself.

  2. I went to a Photoshop colour management seminar about a week ago and they
    said a Mac should have Gamma set to 2.2 (which is the commonly used windows
    value) - I am a windows user but I think my recollection is correct. If
    this is correct there may not be a need to convert.

    CS3 has some magic features (particularly with ACR 4.1 update) -
    http://www.computer-darkroom.com/ has some useful tutorials on colour
    management for CS3 and you might find info there.

    Has the View menu disappeared? Under View there is Proof Setup. Set it to
    Monitor. No?
