Hello everyone,

I am not sure if this has been addressed, I find bits and pieces of information I could use but nothing that really attacks the problem I am having. That being said... until today I have NEVER touched the color management settings in any photoshop I have used. The most I have done is have camera raw change color space from sRBG to Adobe 1998.

Recently on my desktop computer (main editing station), I've noticed that when I preview an image in Bridge, it looks one way and when I open it in camera raw, it seems fine, but the moment it crosses over to the actual workspace, it seems desaturated, there is intense banding in the shadows and a strange overall green cast.

I don't know if I changed an important setting and if I did I surely want to put it back. Furthermore, its impossible for me to edit because I simply don't trust the colors I see. Has anyone come in contact with this issue?

info:

PC, CS5 Master, 64-bit system, but I run 32.
Samsung SyncMaster PX2370 monitor
I only shoot in RAW, I use a canon camera. (not sure what else would be relevant)

Any/all help would be appreciated.

Make sure Bridge isn't converting your Adobe 1998 to sRGB.
Check your settings on the bottom of the ACR screen.
Steve... we've just met so this strange feeling of love and elation is scaring me. I SWEAR to you, I don't know how it go to sRGB. Thank you very much that simple changed seems to be making a huge difference. I will open a few images and report back.

in the meantime, are there any other settings anywhere I should be checking? if so, where and what should they be?

(again, thank you)

Please could you help me as well!
I recently started shooting my images on raw, however when I view the images on my camera (as well as on preview) the colour looks perfect. However as soon as I open the raw images in CS5 edit them, and then save the image (again in either raw or jpg) then the image is horribly desaturated and if I open the image in photoshop or preview there after it still looks horrible and desaturated. Please pleas help :)
