Colors of pictures are always lighter than the original colors when I open pictures in Illustrator. When I change everything to normal in the documentsettings the colors are stil brighter than original colors. Can someone help me with this and is there a solution for this? 🙂

Thank you very much in advance.

No easy answers. This is very much one of those things where you need to educate yourself about color management, how it works and how to set it up in Adobe apps. You are most likely using a specific monitor color profile and not accounting for it in your settings. At the very least set your proof preview to "Monitor RGB". Everything else requires some reading.

Where do you check your 'original colors'?

Can you show your View > Color Settings?

One quick tip: many people get in a big problem with colour because they assume some app is "right" and so other apps must be "wrong". Often though the original app is wrong. Most apps can't do colour right. Really, most of the apps on your computer. Adobe apps are the rare ones that can get it right. (If you set up correctly).
