I am a relatively new photoshop user, and recently purchased a copy of Photoshop CS5 Extended.
The problem i am having is that when i load up a new document with a white background, the background is of an 'off-white' colour, and this isnt a true reflection of what it should be.
I am using 2 monitors, in which the problem is the same on both, but when i open for example, a web page with a white background this shows up perfectly.
When i go to save the image it saves as it should look normally, for example the image on a white background.
I have enclosed an image of the problem i am having.
If anybody could advise me i would be grateful.
It's possible Photoshop is trying to do its color management with a bad monitor profile.
To diagnose this issue,
Now restart Photoshop. Does the problem go away? If so, the monitor profile was telling Photoshop that image data had to be made a yellow color in order to come out white on the display, and you can either continue with a possibly still inaccurate (but better) monitor profile, or you can get a calibration/profiling device, measure your monitor's performance, and create a custom profile.
