Sounds like something is wrong with your color settings or something is wrong with your ACR settings.
What do the photos look like if you set your monitor profile (using Control Panel / Display / Color Management or Control Panel / Color) to sRGB instead of whatever Spyder is determining?
What are the settings in ACR for one of the washed out photos?
What version of Spyder? How old is it?
What version of Photoshop/ACR?
What version of OS?
Thanks for the reply.
When I look at my Color Management, I only have one profile there which is the one set by Spyder. I did try to turn off the calibration and that just makes the photos lighter. Just to cliarfy, its not as if they are slightly off colour, they are seriously wrong. Like one photo is pretty much yellow and as the JPEGS looks normal I dont think its a generic screen calibration problem.
Does ACR stand for Adobe Camera Raw? If so, the settings only have 'Apply auto grascale mix when converting to grayscale' checked in the Default Image Settings. In the JEPG and TIFF Handling section both boxes are checked.
I only bought SpyderPro 3 about 3 months ago so the hardware is pretty new and only recently I upgraded the software to version 1.1.4. I'm using Photoshop CS3 version 10.0 and Camera Raw 4.6. Finally my operating system is Windows Vista.
Hope this additional information helps.
OMG, I feel SO silly!
Sorry all but think have worked out what I did. I must have clicked on 'Save New Camera Raw Defaults' at some point as when I clicked on 'Reset Camera Raw Defaults' all seemed to return to normal.
