Question photoshop 7 problem

hello, this is my first question to this forum.

I have been working restoring a picture with photoshop5.
Yesterday I installed in the same PC/same monitor the photoshop7 ( typical installation), and when I opened that photography I found that it looks much darker than when I opened it in photoshop5.
What I have observed is that all the coloured pictures appear much more saturated wnow, and the B&W ones , look much darker.
Then I deinstalled photoshop7, and opened them with photoshop5 as usual, but the problem remains the same. Tha is as if the photoshop 7 installation had changed the colour space or something like that.
The question is:How can I go back to the original colours?, and what should I do when installing photoshop 7 in order to avoid this problem.
Thank you very much
Can you tell me why?

Javier, the colour architecture between v5.x and v6 or higher is quite different.

There are ways to set things up in a similar fashion.

Photoshop 5.x colour handling was a 'beta' that went public - the public should never have been forced to use this less than ideal system. Colour handling in v6 or higher is what users should have been offered from the start, but taken with hindsight I guess the way v5.x worked was a good way to introduce users to the new concept, even though it has many design flaws. It was an evolutionary step that is best left as fast as possible (v5.x colour handling).

So, you will need to tell the list all your colour settings under the file menu or RGB, CMYK, Grey and Profile Handling in v5.x.

Then we will need to know what preset colour setting you chose in v7 - probably the web defaults?

It is my guess that the RGB and or other working spaces and settings that you use in v5.x are not the same in v7.

More info on all this can be found at the link below, look for the links on colour settings at the Adobe and other sites:
