Photoshop and colours??

#1
Hi.
I'm having some trouble with my Photoshop CS colours, as I can't seem to get any vibrant colours, or even ones that look like those off a web page (I use the provided web #xxxxxx code). For example, my red (FF0000) looks like an orange, not a red, and a brick colour (700D0D) looks a lot drabber and blander than the version they have on the website tutorial I'm following. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!

check to make sure you dont have you monitor's contrast turned up and or in PS check the color profile. Also in your computer's display settings make sure that the contrast or gamma is turned up.

I would set everything you have back to default such as monitor settings and PS CS settings and then go back and change what you like and see what makes the colors go bad

Choosing a "red" in PS CS

my colour settings in PS CS

Choosing the same red in PSP 7




It's not my monitor, it's my PS settings, but they seem to be right. Shouldn't the basic defaults give me decent colour. Even using that color cheat sheet page, the reds look fine in the web browser, but as soon as I copy them into PS, they go orange. Any ideas?

Thanks again.

and wowey, just found something else out. Imageready displays the colours correctly. So that leaves JUST PS CS messing up...interesting...

well if I look at those screen shots from a high angle on my laptop they are orange, if from a lower angle they are red :p
except that I use a CRT not a LCD screen...

anyways, I figured out a solution. I changed my proof setup in the view menu. That seems to be a work around. And yes, I did use the gamma setup thing, it didn't change anything.
