____resolved____

Sorry in advance if this is a all ready been answered before,
I searched and couldn't find an answer (Probably searching for the wrong thing)
but here it goes.

I just recently upgraded from cs3 to cs4, whenever I open an image in cs4 it looks a little dull compared to how it looks in cs3.
This is both in acr and ps
I checked and the color settings and they were set the same
But then when i save the image, they come out looking the same.
I am completely stumped as to what could be causing this. :confused:


example.
also all the images were from the same computer and monitor
Macbook pro OS X 10.5.6

I can't see a difference from the pictures you posted and comparing the last two shows me they are identical. Are you sure your not imagining it?

You did manage to create a picture that I can look at like a stereogram in number 2.

The CS3 shot looks slightly warmer and a bit more saturated to me - different ACR versions?

The final images come out looking pretty much identical, but while in acr and photoshop they look different?

exactly... while working in CS4 the images looked more "dull" compared to CS3.
They are with different versions of ACR, CS3 I have 4.6 and with CS4 I have 5.4 (That was actually the whole reason I upgraded, CS3 does not support the raw files produced with the G10)
But even being different versions, I don't get how the saved images would come out the same, and the working images look so much different. ???

:oops:
I just figured it out...
I double checked the color setting again and found that under "advanced controls" the "desaturate monitor colors by __%" was checked
I completely missed that while comparing the 2 color settings :oops:
SOO i guess CS4 must have that option checked by default... and CS3 must not.
My mistake

But that you guys for responding so quickly

Both don't have that checked by default...
By the way, your ACR is set to output images in AdobeRGB.
Your default PS working space is something else.
The screenshots have "Color LCD" as ambedded profile, the images have AdobeRGB embedded. These will look completely different in a non colormanaged browser (anything major except Safari and FF 3+)

You should convert images for web to sRGB.
