Hello,

I have a problem with the displayed colors at my monitors. After changing tte hard disk, all cs-apps displayed the colors not correctly.

In other programms, for example InfranView, the color respresentation is better. You can see this at the sreenshot from my monitor. I have the test-form from the datei in printed version, too.

In cs I have all colormanagement-settings as before I swapped the hard drive.

What do I have to do now? Thanks you for your answers.

Birgit

Appearance / Display profile issues on Windows

At least once a week on this forum we read about this, or very similar issues of appearance differing between applications.

Unfortunately, with Microsoft hardware: Windows updates, Graphics Card updates and Display manufacturers have a frustratingly growing reputation for installing useless (corrupted) monitor display profiles.

It sounds as if the display profile has not been copied to the new hard drive.  Either copy that over and select it in the OS or reprofile your display and that will correct the issue

In your capture the Photoshop file is in CMYK mode, so its preview in Photoshop would depend on the CMYK profile assignment. To get a matching preview in a different application, the assigned CMYK profile would have to be embedded, and the application would have to have color management capabilities.

Appearance / Display profile issues on Windows

At least once a week on this forum we read about this, or very similar issues of appearance differing between applications.

Unfortunately, with Microsoft hardware: Windows updates, Graphics Card updates and Display manufacturers have a frustratingly growing reputation for installing useless (corrupted) monitor display profiles.

I CAN happen with Macs but with far less likelyhood, it seems.

 

The issue can affect different applications in different ways, some not at all, some very badly.

 

The poor monitor display profile issue is hidden by some applications, specifically those that do not use colour management, such as Microsoft Windows "Photos".

 

Photoshop is correct, it’s the industry standard for viewing images, in my experience it's revealing an issue with the Monitor Display profile rather that causing it. Whatever you do, don't ignore it. As the issue isn’t caused by Photoshop, don’t change your Photoshop ‘color settings’ to try fix it. 

 

To find out if the monitor display profile is the issue, I recommend you to try setting the monitor profile for your own monitor display under “Device” in your Windows ‘color management’ control panel to sRGB temporarily. You can ADD sRGB if its not already listed. 

And be sure to check “Use my settings for this device”.

 

(OR, if you have a wide gamut monitor display (check the spec online) it’s better to try Adobe RGB here instead).

Quit and relaunch Photoshop after the control panel change, to ensure the new settings are applied.

If this change fixes the issue, it is recommended that you should now calibrate and profile the monitor properly using a calibration sensor like i1display pro, which will create and install it's own custom monitor profile. The software should install it’s profile correctly so there should be no need to manual set the control panel once you are doing this right. 

 

Depending on the characteristics of your monitor display and your requirements, using sRGB or Adobe RGB here may be good enough - but custom calibration is a superior approach.

 

Another possibility:

 

If you want to rule out pretty much the only issue we ever see with Photoshop, you can reset preferences, I never read of a preferences issue causing this problem though:

To reset the preferences in Photoshop:

Note: Make sure that you back up all your custom presets, brushes & actions before restoring Photoshop's preferences. Migrate presets, actions, and settings

 

I hope this helps

Windows "Photos" is not color managed. It will never display correctly, ever, under any circumstances. Disregard it. I don't use IrfanView, but I think color management has to be enabled manually.

 

In addition, no consumer-photo viewers that I know even has CMYK support at all. It will display, but with more or less random colors, color management or not.

 

In other words, your assumptions are all wrong. Why would you think "Photos" is more reliable than the industry-standard image editing software?

 

Even so, there's a lot of information missing here. Are you using a calibrator? If not, where does your monitor profile come from? What disk? The system disk? If so, have you rerun calibration/profiling on the new OS installation?
