Windows 10 Standard color issue

Hello,

Now I use windows 10 finally. I switched from win 7.
I installed PS + LR and because I previously saved the settings everything was the same as in Win7. I work with Adobe RGB 1998 color profile in PS and LR and my OS color profile is also Adobe RGB. In Win7 every application (PS, LR, browsers, even the windows image viewer) showed the same result.

Now Win10 shows different colors. Only PS, LR and chrome show the proper? result. The Win7 even 3rd party applications like xnview show reddish color.
I found that how to enable the old windows image viewer too and in that the photos wasn't reddish.
I'm not sure what is going on.
I tried to calibrate my display in Win10 too but after that EVERY application showed the reddish color.

I attached print screens.
The first one is when LR, PS and chrome show the same result as Win7.
The 2nd one when everything is reddish. This time I used the display calibration in Win10.

Re: Windows 10 Standard color issue

A well known Windows issue, and the only solution I know of is to use a preview application that can actually display embedded profiles. Also, Chrome is not to be used for color critical work, it's a web browser.

Windows> Engineering
OSX> Graphic work

Nonsense - please provide objective proof of a 'well known Windows issue' ??

testerke, Windows 10 is just as well colour managed as previous versions so your problem is not with Windows as such as far as I can tell. There is either something wrong with your monitor profile or more likely you are using the wrong one or none at all.

It is not clear from your screenshot how you have set up Windows Colour Management but you should have a screen similar to the attached.

You will note that the display must be recognised and the Use my settings for this device ticked.
My example shows several profiles from the i1 Display Pro, but you will see that CS240 110cd... is the default. If your screen not similar please post a screenshot.

You should also check that any application you use including web browsers are fully colour managed and that you have enabled management

This needs some clarification because
a. You can set your working space to Adobe RGB in PS but you cannot in LR as it uses its own based on ProPhoto coordinates.
b. OS colour profile should not be anything other than the profile that you made for your monitor with your calibration tools - you should not set monitor profile to anything else particularly working spaces such as Adobe RGB, sRGB

Thumbs up Re: Windows 10 Standard color issue

Issue is regarding the Windows preview function in explorer and the Image viewer. Of course you can calibrate the display, it's certain built in Windows functions themselves that suck regardless. You can install additional apps, but on a Mac you don't need to.

Chrome thing is unrelated. EDIT: Make sure you check "embed profile" when saving for web.

THIS is correct.

Also, Tony, are you a Windows user? I was wondering about the gray application frame in PS, as I never found a way to hide it(it's under Window>Application frame on OSX)?

Re: Windows 10 Standard color issue

Thank you the answers guys.
I attached the screenshot to show you my settings.
Unfortunately I couldn't afford any monitor calibration tools after I bought the PS + LR. It was way too expensive in my country. That's why I used the built in tool (suck I know).
I used the color settings, exports and everything else exactly as I learned.

Maybe I screwed up something...

Re: Windows 10 Standard color issue

Your settings are incorrect.

Image bottom right 'monitor' Devices tab.

This shows just as a generic monitor with AMD card. But as you have not calibrated and produced a profile you should not tick the box use my settings.

As it is you are being screwed by telling the OS to use your settings then setting Adobe RGB. Adobe RGB is a synthetic colour space used as a working space for editing not therefore not the required profile
that describes your monitor conditions. Untick the box

If you want you can try the inaccurate profile produced by you tweaking the values in Colour Management. I think you already have that as the second entry sRGB display profile ...CalibratedDisplay...icc
second entry.

Similarly in the top right image 'monitor' your device profile is not Adobe RGB but the profile you produce above

Yes I am mainly PC user although I do have an iMac on my desktop - just for web browsing and as a CD player

I do not have PS on the Mac so am unsure what the Application frame does. You cannot hide the frame exactly but you can use Tab to maximise the application window and hide the dialogue boxes - Tab once again to reveal

Re: Windows 10 Standard color issue

I unchecked the box in the past but in that case everything was reddish.
No matter I unchecked again.
I did some research on the web and found an icc profile for my monitor.

X-Rite i1Display 2
Maximum: 246 cd/m² Average: 233 cd/m²
Brightness Distribution: 86 %
Contrast: 163:1 (Black: 1.5 cd/m²)
ICC File (X-Rite i1Display 2)

Can I use this? or it's not accurate in this way?

Re: Windows 10 Standard color issue

What you have posted is not an ICC profile it appears to be a monitor spec. At least quoting a Max 246 cd/m2. Way too high for photo editing IMO

You may do better to go to monitor manufactured website and download all support files. If lucky you may get a generic profile that describes the average monitor from your range
Edit:
To see how a monitor should look run the tests panels in the link and take note of what you should be seeing

It's this huge gray box covering the desktop. On a mac, you can turn it off, and just click and drag things to PS to import, but on a pc, you have to minimize the entire program, or go open up explorer, and drag from there, kinda tedious.
