Photoshop Elements 4.0 Red Saturation Problems...

Wed Jul 11, 2007 10:08 am

I got PS Elements 4.0 about a month ago, and I've been having problems with red saturation.

A couple of weeks ago I edited a shot and uploaded it to Anet. I looked at the upload and the red saturation looks way lower then when I view the file in PS. So I re-edit and try again: same thing. I look at the original file on the computer in both firefox and mac preview, both desaturated red.

Another recent case: I view one of my shots in both firefox and mac preview before opening it in PS, and everything looks fine. But when I open the file in PS, the red saturation goes way up. And if I save it in PS without making any changes and open it back up in preview, the red saturation is still way high.

Anyone have any idea what's causing PS to oversaturate the reds?? Thanks!

Check what you're color setting is, A.net's is sRGB, you may have accidentally changed it. SO if it's not on sRGB, put it on sRGB.

Image > Color Settings

Hope that helps

Also check your camera is set to work in sRGB as well as PS. A.net is not sRGB - It is your browser that looks at anything on the web that can only interpret sRGB, anything else and your browser will just guess.

One further suggestion would be to look at your images with your histogram and instead of looking using RGB switch it to colour mode. Then you should be able to see if there is a problem with any particular colour channel, then adjust only that channel to fix the problem.

Good luck .. Jid

Alright... Looking under Image > Mode, I have a choice bitmap, greyscale, indexed color, and RGB color, but no sRGB. Also, under Image > Convert Color Profile, I switched around between "sRGB profile" and "Adobe RGB profile" but I didn't see any difference in the appearance of the image, still red.

If it gives you any more information, in the title bar, it says it's "(RGB/8)"

The most frustrating part is if I do an Auto Color adjust, it recognizes the oversaturation of red, and removes it! Absolutely maddening... Thanks for your help so far!
