Hope you guys can help me - it is very frustrating! :cry:

Hmmm. On second thought now that I see them together at the same time, I can see the difference. Double check your screen settings and see if you are on 16 bit color instead of 32 bit color. I switched mine to 16 bit and it actually did look a little more like your color.

Hi mate,

Thanx for the quick reply!

Look at the background in my ps screenshot. and the grey area around, there should be a big difference. and if you look at the toolbox, the one to the right is far more brown.. its like ps is converting my image to another color profile some how..

I do work in 32 bit

Yeah, like I said I can see the difference now that they are on the same page together.

Under Edit, click color settings. I'm using the defaults. See what you have. The default settings are:

Settings: North America General Purpose 2

Working Spaces:
RGB: sRGB IEC61966-2.1
CMYK: U,S, Web Coated (SWOP) v2
Gray: Dot Gain 20%
Spot: Dot Gain 20%

Color Management Policies:
RGB: Preserve Embedded Profiles
CYMK: Preserve Embedded Profiles
Gray: Preserve Embedded Profiles

Profile Mismatches, Missing Profiles and Ask when Pasting are all unchecked.

Yep, colour settings are important.

Also look in your graphics card/monitor colour profiles settings. If I have my Mitsubishi Diamond Plus profile active my Photoshop colours look green. I have to delete it.

Hi all, I'm having the same problem with my CS2 installation ... everything is brown. It saves in the correct colours. Did you end up finding out how you fixed it? I have checked all my colour settings and they appear to be the same as quoted above. Pretty default.
I have tried reinstalling.
The only thing I haven't done is reformatted ... which I really don't want to have to do right now.
Any help would be great, thanks.

Don't worry, I got it.

My settings were set as per the above ... by default by the way:

RGB: sRGB IEC61966-2.1

To get my grays back to being gray and not brown, I had to change this setting to my monitor setting which I chose from the drop down list.

Monitor RGB - ...

Hope this helps someone else in the future.

Here is the solution for the problem of brownish/yellowish appearance in Photoshop CS2:

In Edit > Color Settingsā€¦, i changed the value for "RGB" under "Working Spaces" to "Monitor RGB - Color LCD". The value for "LCD" under "Color Management Policies" was automatically set to "Off".

For some reason images that I am working on, all colors seem to have a dark or brownish tint. Why is this and how can I fix it? I tried resetting to the default adobe setting and even reinstalling and upgrading from CS3. What is it? It is not my graphics card. It has to do with something or a setting in adobe. Reason being is, it is only happening in the project area as you can see in the link below. It seems that the gray color is being replaced by brown.

Here is a screenshot: http://img147.imageshack.us/img147/9545/15000275qv3.png


Please help me!
