colour problem in PS CS
this one is really annoying my m8 and I'm not sure what it is. I'll explain best I can
He is running PS CS (v.8).
He has a .gif with a transparent background. When he opens it in PS the colours look washed out/pale. When he opens it in irfanview it looks ok.
When I open it in PS CS2 it looks ok.
The gif is an avatar
You can see the actual gif http://davlam.f2s.com/picman/images/dave/Fry2.gif
his comparison screenie is http://davlam.f2s.com/picman/images/dave/ps.png
showing what he sees in PS and in irfanview. Also he shows an image with the view when he opens the 'open file' option in PS.
now going on the basis that i can see it fine in CS2 i have given him my colour settings and he has applied them but the problem still exists.
Is this anything to do with CS and indexed colour ?
I don't know.
Can anyone help.
i think he might have sussed it.
He tells me he had proof colours selected (view>proof colors). He unticked that option and it seems to have restored more vibrant colours.
I have never used this option for anything so i didn't even consider it.
Even though it is unticked if he changes the proof colors from eg cmy to cmyk there is a difference (obviously).
Sorry if the post turns out to be a bum steer.
thanks for looking ..
