Just a quick question, perhaps someone could point me in the right direction. I was previously running windows 7 on a home built PC and then upgraded to a cheap Gateway with an i3 with processor and windows 8. Im noticing some color issues and I don't know what is going on. When friends send me photos via email and I save these photos to my computer, if I view the photos in Windows Photo Viewer I am noticing on some ( not all ) color blocking or lower bit depth issues. The photos seem off. Though it's not every photo.. just on some. If I open the same photo in CS6 *usually* it will be appear normal. I say usually, as sometimes when I do minor edits, I can actually see the the photo's colors "SHIFT" in the middle of editing. Like it snaps back and forth. Really odd. I also notice that when I am browsing in Chrome, that some photos look perfect ( for example, photos in threads here on FM ) but then I will notice some photos by different users have blocked up shadows or general colors being off. Again, that could be jpeg artifacts or perhaps the user didn't convert the image to the right color space, but it seems to be happening a lot.
It's hard for me to explain since I can't really post an example, because even if I could that example would probably render OK on someone else's machine. That best way to describe what I am seeing is that the color management profile seems OFF, though.. these photos are just standard RGB photos from various friends and family members who are using point N' shoot cameras/Tablets or iphones. Also, I did not have this problem before when running windows 7?
I would appreciate any help. thanks.
