Photoshop's Gamma vs. Windows Gamma (Adobe Gamma?)

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by Tiemen Rapati, Jul 11, 2004.

  1. Ever since I installed Photoshop CS and Adobe Gamma I have a distinct
    difference in brightness between the jpeg's opened in photoshop and ones
    through the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer and I believe Internet Explorer

    Obviously this bothers me, as I am unable to create the right contrast for
    web-work. I can't verify if the printing output is correct, but for now I'm
    only the webwork has this problem.

    I'll see if I can get screenshots up.

    That's because Windows doesn't use proper colour management. and
    Photoshop does.

    To get things showing correctly, you need to use the correct colour
    space. Which means you need to learn about colour management.

  9. Right. So the color profile of windows isn't correct. Ironically, I have
    been learning about these profiles in the last couple of weeks. Well. where
    should I change my *incorrect* windows color profile?
    Tiemen Rapati, Jul 12, 2004
  10. Cause everything I alter in Adobe Gamma in the control panel, and whatever
    color profile I choose at display properties does not seem to help. I would
    really think setting my monitors color profile to the same one I use on
    those pictures in PS should do the job. But it doesn't...

  11. The problem cannot be 'corrected'. Windows completely ignores
    the monitor profile, and Photoshop uses it correctly. The only
    way to make them the same is to make Photoshop as incorrect as
    Windows, which kind of defeats the object! Or you could use a
    Mac, but that way lies madness ;-)

    It's a problem that has been around for a while - there's no
    way to guarantee that your web images will look OK on any other
    (not colour managed) computer. The usual compromise is to
    convert the image to sRGB and get it looking right in
    Photoshop, but it can still look very different on other PCs.

    You can't. Windows doesn't use the profiles at all. Which is why it
    looks tight in PS (if you've set things up properly) but it doesn't in
    anything which is Windows.

  13. What a shame. That was exactly what I was afraid of...
