When you have several pictures open in the editor there are tabs all across the top of the screen giving you the pictures number. Is there any way to increase the contrast or change the color of the tab for the picture being edited so that its easier to see which one to save?
Thanks in advance
On windows with pse 10 this is how it looks with the document in a color profile (asterisk inside the parentheses) other than the working space and the image that changes
have been done and not saved.(asterisk outside the parentheses)
That's what confused me about Ken's post until i realized he was right because that was something new added in cs4/pse 8 (the asterisk indicating unsaved data outside the parentheses).

Yes, I get that, too, if I change the profile while working on it. If I remove the profile I get a # there. So what do you suppose the asterisk outside parens on a newly opened, unedited file is for? The adobe help is silent on this point.
It is indeed strange that any offical documentation from adobe on what the symbols in the documents title bar mean, seems to be non existent.
I did find something on Julieanne Kost's blog about it:
It's interesting that PSE uses the "#" to indicate no profile association. The asterisk is standard stuff used by other programs, too, to indicate unsaved changes so it's not surprising that its explanation was overlooked.
I don't know why you see an asterisk on a newly opened file, but that means something in the file's bytes have changed. I notice that when I open a RAW file in the Editor, it initially does not have an asterisk. Simply closing its tab adds an asterisk and prompts for saving changes.

That's logical, but in this case it was the first time I'd ever opened that file in PSE on a new install on a new computer, so I think it must be something else.
I see Julieanne also doesn't mention this.
Since you didn't alter any pixels, the only other thing would be the metadata -- PSE might have rewritten the metadata when writing the file into memory or to its working temp file. Something minor like adding a CR/LF at the end of a header section, I'd guess....
