  • Photoshop problem / monitor calibration

    Hi there,

    I just replaced my hard drive for a SSD drive in my macbook pro.
    I made a Time Machine backup and restored it to the new drive. So I suppose to have an exact copy of what I had in my old hard drive.

    I have my screen calibrated by Color Munki Display. It was working perfectly in my old drive, but now, when I open Photoshop, it doesn't care about the profile and uses the one by default.
    When I close Photoshop the profile made by Color Munki starts running again.

    I wasn't able to find anything about this online.

    Any ideas?

    Does your new SSD drive have the same name as the old one?
    When you check Display Preferences is the old profile highlighted after you open PS?
    Have you tried re-calibrating?

      HI, thanks for reply :-)

      1- Does your new SSD drive have the same name as the old one? - YES

      2- When you check Display Preferences is the old profile highlighted after you open PS?
      - I can't tell, I had to reinstall my older drive to be able to keep working. I'll check on it later

      3- Have you tried re-calibrating? - Yes, I recalibrated but the same happened, when Photoshop opens, it makes my calibration inactive and use the one by default.

        Make sure the Photoshop color settings in the area marked in red are unchecked. See image.

            You may want to delete all your old display profiles and then re-calibrate.

            Also, in Photoshop preferences, make sure you have USE GRAPHICS PROCESSOR checked under Performance.

            If these things don't resolve your issue it may be due to an incompatibility with your new SSD drive.

              It is not too clear from your description what is actually happening.

              1. If it is your screen display profile that is being ignored how can you tell?

              AFAIK both Windows and Mac systems store a screen profile in particular folders (for Windows default C:\Windows\System32\Spool\Drivers\Color\ )and the OS needs to be told to use that profile which will be used for all applications and should remain constant.

              2. How can you tell that the ColorMunki profiles starts running again - where are you looking?

              3. If it is the Color Settings screen that changes between Photoshop sessions then have you tried changing the setting to reflect your preferences and then rename and Save those settings?

                Hi,
                thank you all for trying to help me.

                It is not easy to explain this with words in a foreign language.
                I've made a video of it. You will notice what I mean:
                https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roE9...ature=youtu.be

                I'm attaching a screeshot so you see that I'm using the profile I created with colormunki, names matzo-2015.icc


                I've tried uninstalling and re installing Photoshop as well as my calibration software (ColorMunki Display) and it still happens. How do I know? Because it is very very noticeable. the screen suddenly changes into a blueish tone. As soon as I close Photoshop, it goes back to the calibration I set before.

                Haven't found anything online about this :-(

                    Hi Tony, thanks for the link!
                    It just happened again with another application, so I started guessing it is something related to the graphic card.

                    Thanks so much!

                          New Monitor Problem
                          by Nan
                          My 9 year old computer finally crashed a couple of weeks ago. I got a new HP with an LCD monitor. I don't know much about calibrating and have always had a hard time with it even following the steps I've found online but I finally got my old one just right. This new one is giving me fits. Everything...

                          by Rubiks
                          Hi all. My monitor died so I have a loaner. The only calibration hardware I have is the old spyder 2 unit. I set the loaner to 6500k and did the calibration. To my shock, all of my files look really cold compared to how they did on my old monitor (also calibrated with the spyder 2).

                          I am...

                          I just bought a new monitor (LG IPS235) and when I open Photoshop CS6, this message pops up: "The monitor profile "LG IPS235" appears to be defective. Please rerun your monitor calibration software." (BTW, I didnt run any calibration software and I dont think my monitor has any calibration...

                          Problem with eyeone display 2?
                          by tristefoc
                          I managed to resolve the problem by reinstalling by video card drivers.

                          Does anyone seem to have any problems with color casts for eye one display 2? and if there are substantial differences in sRGB embedded pictures when viewed in Photoshop against that of the internet browsers?
