Hi Guys!

I am using Photoshop 7. The problem is whenever I open a picture in Photoshop, it appears to be more orangish/yellowish than the picture actually is. The same picture when opened in any other software, may that be IrfanView, MS Phot Editor, MS Paitbrush etc, comes out to be fine. Now, when I try to edit the pics in Photoshop, because of the faulty colour display, I am not able to judge it well. I am including a copy of a photo opened in Photoshop and Irfan View. The difference is clearly visible. Please help as to how can this be rectified.

Thank you.

The Photoshop picture looks more natural to me...the irfanview version looks cold somehow...


what colorspace are you saving in/as and is your monitor calibrated?

Well, in this picture you can say that Photoshop pic seems to be better, but most of my pictures look bad in it. These pictures are just for an example. The most important thing is that a picture should look the same in all softwares. The above picture looks the same in all other softwares except Photoshop.

As for colourspace, what is that and how can I know which one do I have?

The photoshop picture does not seems to be better...it is way better...

"The most important thing is that a picture should look the same in all softwares. "

Absolutely will not happen... calibrate your monitor and use Photoshop to do all of your ajustments.... all of your other viewers are just that... viewers/organizers

if you have not got the point yet... monitor calibration is the first step.... the rest of the ride is pointless if you don't do that

To add to etafs point... I print and shoot in Adobe 1998...sRGB produces poorer quality...
