Ugly dk. pink color for white in PS 7

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by Jerry Cargile, Mar 23, 2009.

  1. Hi,

    I just installed a different motherboard and after reinstalling
    Photoshop 7 I open a new canvas and instead of being white like I
    checked, it's a dark pinish color. I have tried to change the color
    settings and all that I've tried has not changed this substitution for
    white. Also, in the swatches menu, about 90% of them are this same ugly
    pink color.

    I have also reinstalled Photoshop several times, although I didn't
    delete the old one that was still on the drive it was on before I
    changed motherboards.

    I would appreciate any help that I can get in solving this problem.

    If you didn't know how to set your PC up after installing a "different"
    motherboard, why on earth did you do it?

    It goes like this... Peanuts in monkey shit out. Learn about how a
    motherboard works and and why it needs "drivers" to drive things like
    graphics engines and then either take it to a technician and pay to have
    it fixed or format your hard drive and start all over again.

    What kind of advice is that!!!

    You are probably the new smartass of this group, but I can't understand
    why you even answered my post unless it was just to troll....I suspect
    that I've hit the nail on the head.

  4. Thanks for the links for help, Mike. I saw some others there that were
    experiencing similar problems and solved them by doing the following:

    "A lot of Photoshop problems can be fixed by dumping the preferences
    file: While launching Photoshop, Hold down Alt+Ctrl+shift on the PC or
    Cmd+Option+Shift on the mac. When asked to reset the preferences say yes."

    I finally solved my problem by going to the display settings of the
    graphics card and deleting the monitor setting ind the color management
    tab and selecting the adobe setting.

    I do appreciate your answer and help, Mike...thank you very much.
