Do you still have the original raw file? If so if you open in photoshop is it correct or show the blue as black?
I don't know if PSE is color managed, but it may be a color gamut issue. PS is most likely correct.
Sounds like the very well-known bug in some AMD graphics drivers: pixels with red component = zero are displayed as black. Photoshop is one of very few programs which expose the AMD bug.
Check that by creating a layer of RGB (0, 255, 255) in Photoshop. If it is displayed as black instead of bright cyan then you need a new driver and should get Catalyst 13.3 beta (or Catalyst 12.8 if you don't want a beta release) from AMD's site.
Thank you for yur reply, Curt. Yes, I do have the original RAW file. When I open it in PSE and PS, the colours appear correctly AT FIRST as shown here:
However, when I select "Open Image", it appears as here:
You will see that the blues in the lady's scarf and the wolly hat of a man in the forground are appearing as black. However, when the file is saved as JPEG or PNG and printed or viewed using PSE or Pait, or any other medium (even Premiere Elements), the colurs arer fine.
However, the same process when followed in PSE, does not result in the same outcome. The image displays correctly.
Thank you, Conroy, you are absolutely correct. The layer RGB 0,255,255 DID result in a black screen. I am very grateful to you.
I had updated the driver about a month ago when I got a new monior and had assumed that I had the latest version. Clearly I was wrong.
Updating to the latest final release (i.e. non-beta) probably caused the problem.
12.8 was the last final release to work well with Photoshop. Subsequent final releases and some recent betas have had various problems but the current beta is supposed to be good.
Every day I look to see if 13.3 beta 3, which is good, and has apparently been in WHQL testing for some time now, has been released (it'll probably be released as 13.4). Not yet, as of this evening.
