    It sounds like you have different gamma settings in two, maybe three

    If you see three different images (IV, PSP, PS) you seem to have
    different monitor gamma settings in PSP and PS and no system-wide
    color management running. Maybe you could switch of (=Set to neutral)
    the monitor gamma settings in PSP and PS and see whether the image
    still looks different.

    Hello PSP and Photoshop users,

    I have PSP 8 and PhotoShop 7 installed. If I open the same photo in
    both packages, the PSP one looks 'natural', with neutral colors and
    contrast, good enough in fact to use unedited. The same image in
    PhotoShop looks very vivid and dark and appears to need color and
    contrast correction. If I look at the photo in my graphics viewer
    (IrfanView) the image more closely resembles the PSP image.

    Can anyone tell me what's going on, why does the image appear
    overcooked in PhotoShop?

    I've looked at the Adobe Gamma setting in Control Panel. If anything,
    when I adjust Gamma to the ideal as set with the wizard, the contrast
    is darkned even more. As far as I know, both images are being
    displayed as RGB, if this helps eliminate anything.

    I had a color profile loading in my ATI graphics card Color Management
    control panel. When I removed it the display in PhotoShop returned to
    normal. The 3 images in PhotoShop, PSP and IRFanView now appear the

    Many thanks!
