p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Image looks different in PS


I've noticed a strange thing with how my images look on my monitor. Any given image, LR, Bridge, and Window picture viewer all give about the same look, but in PS the images look different. Oh, and the prints I get back from the lab match LR, etc.

In PS the images have a slightly low contrast, washed out look. If I had to recreate it I'd use a Levels adjustment and raise the Black output up about 15 or 20.

It is not a colour space thing, I don't think. I use sRGB and they all seem to be that(when I can pick it).

This one has me stumped, but I'm guessing someone out there has seen this before.

Thanks, Lance

have you verified that you do not have softproofing turned on in PS? Certainly sounds like that is what is happening.

I think is was really that simple. I have a CRT monitor and a LCD monitor, and I've been dragging PS back and forth between the two, and it looks like the act very differently depending on monitor. If I leave it on the CRT monitor and turn off soft proofing, that seems to do the trick.

I've never used soft proofing, so I assumed it was off. Never even thought to look there.

Thanks for the help, Lance

your computer may not be swapping the color profile (you *are* calibrating, right?) when you move the in-focus window to the other monitor.

Sounds good to me. I'm pretty good with all things digital and computers, but I do tend to get lost with colour management talk. Yes, I do calibrate.
