    photshop CS5 paint bucket colors do not match selected color picker colors

    lb_fleming

      I recently installed CS5 on my laptop after first removing it from my previous machine.

      All licences were validated so no problems there.

      Now when using paint bucket in photoshop, the colors that I select in the color picker are not the colors that result when I use the paint bucket.

       

      If I create a new black canvas then the colors selected in color picker work with paint bucket.

      But if I attempt to recolor the background in an existing image that I import into photoshop, I get the mismatch with colors when I use paint bucket. My method for selecting colors is the same in each case, I select 'set foreground color' and set the color using html values entry at the bottom of the panel.

       

      Any help would be gratefully received.
