There is something wrong with my PSCS2. Photos view VERY washed out when opened in Photoshop CS2. I am having a hard time making adjustments to my pics because I have to save the file and then open it in ACDSee to see what the REALLY looks like. Here is screen shot of a photo I took opened in PSCS2 and ACDSee (right)... http://www.harleypeople.org/ubb/uplo...photoshop4.JPG
As you can clearly see, the PSCS2 photo APPEARS to be desaturated (however when printed or viewed outside of PSCS2 it is fine). This is NOT a problem with my camera...even stock professional photography (like the ones that came with Adobe Lightroom) come out looking the same way...ALL photos do. Here is the profile I started with (I have since checked the boxes to alert me to profile mismatches)... http://www.harleypeople.org/ubb/uplo...e_settings.JPG
I've tried changing the color profile and I've even hit Ctrl+Alt+Shift when opening PS (to reset back to the default settings) then restarted my system...nothing has worked. Could my software be corrupted? I disabled Adobe Gamma in the start menu thinking it was interfering with my graphics card...it did NOT help.
I'm using Adobe PSCS2 (version 9.0.2) in Windows XP Pro with an NEC MultiSync 22" CRT monitor on an NVIDIA GeForce FX 5900 Ultra graphics card (I've update the drivers for both my monitor and card). Computer proc is an Intel P4-EE 3.2MHz on an MSI-Neo mobo with 4 gigs of memory.
