Color change after opening a raw file to edit in Photoshop CS6?

Hi guys,
I started using RAW again, and I remembered why I stopped. Since I'm an amateur, one of the main reasons why I chose Canon and bought all my equipment AGAIN, is the colors. I absolutely LOVE the canon colors. Down the road I found out canon is simply the best :)
Anyways, I shoot at RAW+JPEG mode, and every time I open a picture to edit in ps 6, I get a weird tone with a brown(ish) color. still RGB but a little bit brown. there's almost nothing I can do to change it, it's frustrating. It had happened to me before ,using PICASA.
the first 2,3 days - all is ok. and then, this. it must be something I'm doing wrong. I googled and found no reason.

Has anyone experienced this? If so, what's the solution?

CAMERA : 550D \ t2i . LENS: tamron 17-50 2.8 (Love this lens!!)
attached please find any example (I'm aware that in this pictures RAW looks better, trust me, the face looks grown\yellow and weird!)
the lower picture is the JPEG.

thanks
Eden.

Can't you just play with the RAW settings until you get the look that matches the JPEG? I think the reason the JPEG looks different is b/c the camera does some processing on it that it doesn't do with RAW. With RAW, it's up to you.

A Raw file has no color. Absolutely none. A Raw is a greyscale image and the color is created by the proccessing unit during the creation of a jpg based on the Raw data. There are two ways to get the Canon proccessing that will produce Canon colors; let the camera do it or let Canon's DPP application do all the work - i. e., don't touch a slider, leave them at their default positions. But if you use PSCS/ACR the default colors will be Adobe colors, not Canon colors. Start moving sliders and the colors become a partnership between you and Adobe. The power is in your hands to contribute a greater or lesser part of the partnership.

I am reminded of a thread I read in a different forum about a year ago. Some somewhat foolish people were debating the relative merits of "Canon colors" and "Nikon colors" until somebody shut them up by writing, "I don't want Canon or Nikon colors! I want my colors!" That is why we shoot Raw.

Eden, to emphasize a point made above, I'd advise you to work with the Canon Raw processing software Digital Photo Professional (DPP) to get a look at how the jpegs are being rendered from the Raw files. If you open the Raw file in the Edit window DPP will apply the in-camera settings that the camera uses when creating a jpeg. Then you can examine things like the Picture Style settings the camera uses. The Adobe doesn't apply these things the way that Canon does, but you can use DPP to analyze things and then in the Adobe Raw software you can tweak things accordingly.

OK ,as mention - I'm not a pro.. so really all this information is quit new,
I would like to know how to change the settings so that when I start working on a picture i'll see the same colors I see in my JPEG version, becuase I can't get these colors, no matter what I try..
Again,googled- and nothing helpful came up.

thank you.

Yes, that was the only thing that came out when I googled, I didn't try it because I do find the cs6 a VERY convenient tool , also, I believe I can get the colors I want. I had them!! I know I clicked something[It happened right after that one time when I open a picture in RAW and then somehow transferred it to JPEG regular mode], I just don't know what :(

Eden, there's no "magic" approach to this, Raw processing in most software (other than DPP) is a pretty subjective/creative process.

The Adobe Camera Raw does have some "presets"/profiles you can play with in the "Camera Calibration" tab. They are similar to the camera Picture Styles, so if you open the "drop down" list for Camera Profile in that tab, you will see choices that are made to "match" the Canon Picture Styles -- feel free to play around, just realize that they are only "starting points"!

Please check a couple of settings. 1) What is the camera Color Space set to? 2) What is the camera Picture Style set to? 3) When you open a RAW file in ACR, what does the blue hyperlink at the bottom show? 4) do you have ACR set up to open jpeg's?
