I have an X-Rite i1Display Pro that I use to calibrate my RGB-LED monitor. I've used the i1Display Pro for over a year now and haven't had any problems (at least none of which I was aware). However, I took a picture for my daughter's high school drama production last night that they are going to use to promote their play (Sweet Charity). As you can see below, most of the color in this picture are shades/tones of red.
The first thing I noticed was that the thumbnails in Windows Explorer (Win 7 64-bit SP1) appeared more blood red that the images I was looking at in Photoshop or Photo Ninja. And then, oddly, when I uploaded a picture to my SmugMug site, the thumbnail has the "blood red" appearance but the larger preview picture (or any other size of picture that I choose to view) does not. Upon more investigation, if I view the picture in Google Chrome or in Firefox, it looks like it does in Photoshop. If I view it in IE9, I see the "blood red" version. (And according to this page, IE9 is the only one of these browsers that is ICC v4 ready.)
Lastly, I printed the photo on my Pixma printer. I don't often print my own photos and this printer is not calibrated. But in the past when I have printed, the prints matched what I was seeing on my monitor pretty closely. When I sent the print, I checked the box to let Photoshop manage the colors. The output was very close to the "blood red" version of the picture.
So now I'm at a loss as to what is going on and which "view" of the photo is correct. The only thing that has changed recently is that I had to replace the graphics adapter in my laptop. It's a newer version of original adapter but I re-calibrated my monitor right after swapping the adapters. If anyone can shed any light on this problem, I'd appreciate it.
The appearance in Photoshop/Photo Ninja is on the left, the "blood red" view in other applications is on the right.
