Opening pics with different programs
Hi all! Long time reader first time post....

I've been taking pics at a local bball comp for a few years now and a new season started just the other day. Upon opening the file with PS Elements, all the photos had this dark yellowish look about them. On the cameras lcd they looked nothing like this, and when I open the pics with Windows picture & fax viewer they look "normal", just like they did on the lcd (ie without this dark yellow cast)..

Any ideas why PS is opening files looking like this? I have never had this problem in the past (PS would open the files normally, no casts) and as far as I know nothing has changed (same camera, lens, settings etc). Also this occurs with pictures from other cams, and pictures which never had this problem (from earlier seasons) at the time of editing. My only guess is that I've inadvertently changed some default option in PS when opening files. Help!.

On the left is what PS opens, the right Windows picture & fax viewer..

Bingo!.

It was preselected to "Always optimize colors for computer screens". I changed it to "No color management" and it is back to normal now..

I could swear I've never seen this menu before, I dunno how it changed in the first place. Is this the setting most of you use? How is the awful image it was giving me "optimized for computer screens" anyhow? I use a stock 15in lcd screen so I might be missing something?.

Thanks for your help Eclipse!..

The typical cheap monitor comes from the manufacturer set "hot" (blue). Ie the color temp is dialed up. If you don't account for that then when you print the colors will look very different from that displayed. Thus they "cool" (yellow) the picture and then the monitor and printed output will look close.Apparently your monitor is adjusted about right unlike most.A member of the rabble in good standing..

I haven't had this problem before, but I could feel your pain and thought it would be in preferences, but nope. It was next to it though and I guessed that this would help & I'm delighted that it did..

NJP, what version of Photoshop are you using, becuase in CS3 I don't have the options you mention in Color Settings. It sounds like you're turning off colour management in Photoshop, which is a bad thing to do. Even if the images end up looking the same in Photoshop and in your non-colour managed apps, that doesnt' mean they're right. In fact, they're now wrong in both. If you want to print, the differences will become even more obvious..
