when loading an image into cs3 or elements 7 I am getting a large color shift to magenta and the image is getting very dark. I have reset the color settings and reset to default but no improvement in the images. the pictures look good in bridge or any other picture viewer on the computer. Any suggestions.
can you upload a copy of the problem image here
can you post a screenshot of your Photoshop Color Settings here
Edit> Color Settings
both downloaded files have embedded sRGB profiles
here in Photoshop, using the embedded profiles, one looks green-cyanish, the other magentaish
that tells me at least one has been altered and saved (if they are supposed to be color equals)
i don't understand your point, sorry
