Photoshop :: Colors Look Different

Jul 28, 2009

When I open a picture in Photoshop CS3 or Camera RAW for editing and then save that picture, and then open the saved picture in any program other than Photoshop, the colors and tints and saturation are very different. I am pretty sure this has to do with my color profile in Photoshop, but I've checked many online sources and my color settings seem to match up more or less with what's recommended. My camera is set to sRGB and Photoshop is set to sRGB IEC61966-2.1, and this is happening both with JPEGs and RAWs, from two different Canon cameras.Pictures look more natural when viewed in Photoshop than in other programs (I think), even before any could this be?The weird things is, when I go to Edit > Assign Profile and then select "Lighthouse (D65 G2.2 A34.29)" from the drop-down menu, the image in Photoshop now looks exactly like it does when I open the same image in an image viewing program. What does this mean?Also, when viewing my photos in Bridge CS3, the colors look like they do in Photoshop until I zoom in 100% and the photo finishes loading the actual pixels, at which point the colors dramatically change.How can I edit pictures in Photoshop and Camera RAW when what I'm editing is not what's actually seen?


Photoshop :: Colors In Print Preview Not Matching Colors In Soft Proofing

Jul 7, 2013

Just wanted to print a new photo and realized that the colors in print preview do not match the colors in soft proofing. In both cases I selected the same icc profile and rendering method. The print colors matched the colors in print preview. I never had a problem so far. All new prints will be checked with soft proofing and adjusted when necessary. I never paid attention to the color rendition in print preview and all prints perfectly matched the colors from the soft proofing. I was surprised when my print came out of the printer and the colors weren't matching the soft proofing colors, but that of the print preview.
I don't understand why Photoshop renders the colors differently in the first place. See attached screenshot for the difference in the blue/cyan colors. I don't care if the print view colors will match the print, but I do care when soft proofing is not working.

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Change Layer Colors To New Set Of Colors?

May 8, 2012

We are working with a company that will be sending us DWG files. They do not use the same layer colors as us and I am trying to find a lisp that would allow me to set up a table with the layer names and the color I want them to be so that I can quickly change all the layers to our companys color standards.


Layer 1 = Color 1
Layer 2 = Color 15
Layer 3 = Color 10

I don't know a lot about lisp but I figure if I could find a lisp that did this I could plug in my layer/color assignments and it would work.

Photoshop :: Colors In PS Seem To Be Better Than In BMP?

Jun 5, 2006

I'm working on a design for a web. It's quite colorful with bright colors. In Photoshop it looks exactly the way I want it to look, but when I export it as JPG, PNG or even BMP then the colors seem to be a bit lesser bright... they don't look that lively anymore.

What could be the problem? I understand that PNG and JPG may have some restrictions, but at least BMP should be able to reflect every pixel the way it is shown in Photoshop, isn't it?

Photoshop :: Colors Are Off

May 18, 2006

My colors inside Photoshop are off. I'm using CS and when I create an image and select save for web, the colors that the preview shows are quite a bit lighter than the ones that am using inside the application.

It does this for all images. I edit them in photoshop, save them in any format, and then open them outside of photoshop and they are brighter.

Why are my pictures in PhotoShop (CS2) different from the same pictures viewed through an image viewer.

I have a pictures of can't get 'manage attachments' to open...

Photoshop :: PMS Colors

Dec 1, 2004

I'm having trouble getting PMS colors in photoshop to print the same way as they print from Illustrator. Illustrator seems to be printing fine, but when i print the same PMS color from photoshop, it looks and prints very different.

Also, when i bring in Illustrator files into Photoshop, the colors don't match. reds become very pink, etc. and rebuilding things in PMS colors doesn't seem to yield any better results.

Photoshop :: How To Scan At 256 Colors

Aug 12, 2012

I upgraded from CS3 to CS5 and need to be able to import using TWAIN so that I can scan at 256 colors like I used to be able to with CS3. I cannot convert to 256 colors afterwards as the quality is too poor.

I am using 64 bit Windows 7. I tried installing the TWAIN plugin in the Adobe/plugins/import folder but it does not show up in the import options after restarting PS. I wouldn't mind downgrading to PS3 if I have to.
