Colors open Finder and ACR and Photoshop look different

Recommended Posts

Hi, I just got a new IMac 27". When I open the unedited pictures in Finder the colors look ok but when I open them in ACR and PS the colors are washed out. I calibrated my monitor but still wait for the pictures of the lap to arrive to compare them. 

But why do the colors in Finder look so much different? All is set to sRGB, also in ACR and PS. I also tried to set everything the new calibration (like in picture), doesn't matter, the colors stay washed out in ACR and PS. Please see attached screenshots of ACR and Finder View...Finder is more saturated....

thanks so much!!

This is an other example of edited pictures, in Photoshop the colors look ok but in Finder they look over saturated..

This is very very very very very very very very very very bad.  NEVER use your monitor profile as an image colour space.  Only ever use sRGB.

Yes ok, got it, thank you, but it is the same even with sRGB..... the view is different in Finder and ACR and Photoshop....why, do you know?

Yep, that's fine.  Finder isn't colour-managed, you see.  It's perfectly normal (though annoying, I agree.)

All that matters is that Photoshop matches your pro lab prints.  Does it?

Thanks, yes I am still waiting for my pictures, the computer is brand new...yes it is annoying...it's so weird that nobody else I talked to seems to have that problem, they all say the pictures look exactly the same in Finder and PS....

NO, not from my 'new' printing lab which is Mpix... :-( But I will get them in 1-2 days. I have one canvas that looks the same in finder but not in PS

Please don't worry about this in the meantime.  Monitor calibration isn't valid unless you're doing it with prints in hand, so we can't know what's going on.  Just chill out and drink wine for a couple of days until the prints arrive.

Did you follow my instructions here?

Hi Dmaie, the pics from Mpix are here and unfortunately they don't look much like my PS pictures, the prints are way more saturated and yellow, please see attached files. What can I do?

OK, but with my Spyder there is not really something except the brightness that I can change myself...How would I do it? I probably read your article again, right ;-)

Ok will try and let you know. Should I get prints again after calibrating again?

Or could it be Mpix? Maybe I should order different labs? It’s so confusing with everything looks different

When I just look at the display on my desktop, the picture with the settings SrGB look saturated, old calibration less saturated and new calibration very little saturated...first picture is new calibration, middle is older one and last in SrGB setting from the computer...
