CS4 psd file display problem

Dec 28, 2011 4:51 PM

Tags: #cs4 #photoshop #problem #windows

For some reason within the last few months a problem with the colors that Photoshop is displaying in the application. The colors are not actually wrong if you check the color picker, it's just how it actually looks when you're working on it. In addition, when you are moving the tab in Photoshop if it's not maximized, the color is correct.

 

How it currently looks:

How it should and does look when actually moving the file within Photoshop

correct_color.jpg

 

Has anyone seen this?

    Could be an OpenGL driver bug, and could be a bad display profile.

    What colour space are you bringing the images in with?

     

    Are you using Proofing?   Go View > Proof setup and choose Monitor RGB, and toggle on with Ctrl y

    Your display profile *IS* an OS setting, and not a Photoshop setting.

    That would make me suspect OpenGL. Try to turn it off in Photoshop preferences.

    Actually that was only half of it...next is to see if an updated video card driver can fix the problem permanently. Check with the GPU manufacturer's site (ATI/NVidia).

     

    What happened was probably that Windows update delivered a buggy (and outdated) driver. Next time check "hide this update" and it won't show up again.
