I don’t know if this is an XP problem or an Adobe problem, or a conflict between Adobe and XP, or just my crappy computer…
The color in Photoshop sucks. Sucks. Renders Photoshop unusable. It appears to me that the blacks are made kind of yellow, or brown. I view a black and white image, and it looks sepia-toned. Color images have a weird color cast to them—no real dark darks, just dark sepias and then the other colors.
This not a huge problem for me yet, since I use my Mac for Photoshop most of the time. (And with the Altivec plug-in, it’s damned fast!) But I can’t figure out what the deal is with the PC. Another thing: It seems like these weird colors mostly show up with PSD (native Photoshop) files, not with jpg files. jpg files look OK. But I don’t usually edit jpg files, dammit!
Paint Shop Pro shows the colors better, but there’s still something not right about the color (so it seems) in PSP too. Besides, I don’t want to use PSP. I know all the keyboard shortcuts in Photoshop, so that is what I want to use, dammit!
Does anyone have any clue what is going on here?
