Image looks different in ACR and Photoshop


Recommended Posts

My images look less saturated when I open them from ACR to Photoshop. The colour spaces are the same. I had a little search around and tried changing the proof set up but it didn't really make much difference.

I'm out and about at the moment on my laptop so don't have my monitor to compare them. I've had a look anyway and they all look the same on my (as calibrated as it can be) laptop screen. From memory the ACR image is the odd one out, Bridge looks like Photoshop. Sounds like it's going to be a calibration issue? I've no idea how to remedy it though. My calibrator is not quite a year old.

I only started using ACR when I booked onto your raw course so I first noticed it when I got to the editing part of the course and then posted. It's only been a couple of weeks since the last calibration. Could my room set up cause a problem? I've been wondering about making a hood for my monitor, I can't find any to buy.

It's unlikely your room is causing the issue since it appears different in separate programs. (a room issue would impact all the programs the same)

I'm back, unfortunately that fix ended up not really being a fix unfortunately. If I use it I have to choose to either turn off the calibrated profile on my monitor and loose the calibration on that (not happening) or on my laptop (which I hate, I'm having to toggle back and forth depending on whether I'm editing or not). I've also noticed that ACR is still not quite the same as photoshop and that the problem extends to web browsers as well, I mainly use Chrome but have been using Firefox for the course and the problem is on both. I'm at a loss about what to do and I don't know where to start looking. At the moment I either have to put up with the inconvenience of changing the laptop monitor profile every time I want to edit and the slight difference in ACR or use Lightroom (which I know you don't recommend) and put up with the web browser porblem. Do you have any suggestions or ideas?

5 Pro, I've followed your instructions to calibrate as best I could. I can't get the brightness on my monitor as low as I would like but I'm happy with the colours.

And just so I'm perfectly straight with all this ...

When your desktop monitor isn't plugged in, and you're using your laptop screen, all three programs (Bridge, ACR and Photoshop) look the same.  Am I right so far?

What about when the desktop monitor is plugged in?  Do all three programs still look the same on the laptop screen? Or does the problem of difference suddenly appear?

The problem of difference is evident on the desktop screen whenever it's plugged in.  Yes?

All three programs look the same on the laptop screen whether the desktop monitor is plugged in or not. The problem of difference is evident on the desktop screen all the time.
