After upgrading to windows 11 white color in photoshop is not exatly white ( in bridge too ) but when we open the exact same image in camera raw filter it is white. I've seen others are facing same issue and ive tried to fix it in the color managment options in windows as said in that thread and still facing the same issue. Hope i  can get it fixed as soon as possible, as i am a professional working in wedding field so the colors are important to me.

Thanks.

Hi

Photoshop has not been tested to run on Windows 11, Windows 11 is only a new OS and will certainly contain bugs, I would revert back to Windows 10 and wait at least 6 months before installing Windows 11

I certainly won't be installing it any time soon.

Hi, there's a good chance you are experiencing the dreaded Windows display profile anomaly:

 

Here's something to try

It'll only take a few minutes and is good troubleshooting.

 

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

Of course you must not expect accurate colour with programs such as Windows "Photos", because colour management is not implemented there so such programs are incapable of providing accurate image display.

 

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 likelihood, 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.

 

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

 

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

You can click ADD to add sRGB if it’s not already listed there.

 

Once it’s selected, be sure to check “Use my settings for this device” up top.

And click on “set as Default Profile - bottom 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.

 

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 its own custom monitor profile. The software should install its profile correctly so there should be no need to manually set the control panel once you are doing this right.

 

 

 

Still got problems?

If you want to try a method that’s proved successful to rule out many an issue we see with Photoshop, you can reset preferences:

 

To reset the preferences in Photoshop: 

https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/preferences.html

 

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

This is most likely a broken monitor profile, and I believe @NB, colourmanagement net has given you the solution.

If you've tried this before without success, you may have changed the monitor profile while Photoshop was running without relaunching it afterwards. Photoshop picks up the monitor profile on launch.

Please try that and let us know here

That's not the one.

 

sRGB IEC61966-2.1 is the one you want, specifically.

 

Or buy a calibrator.

Not according to the screenshot. Added where?

 

And "calibrated according to the printer" makes no sense. The printer has nothing to do with this.

We added sRGB IEC61966-2.1 as you said. We have to calibrate the system
according to the printed color to match the picture we edit, otherwise the
color we see on screen won't match the printed picture. When changing
calibration through windows calibrate display color setting it changes to "
sRgb display profile with display hardware configuration data derived from
calibration".
We understand that you said to add sRGB IEC61966-2.1 it still showed the
same result on Windows 11 , but anyways reverted back to Windows 10 for
now.

OK, I need to partly take that back. Calibrate to the finished print, yes, match the white point and black point. I do that myself. I read "calibrate to the printer" differently. My bad.

 

Make sure to check "use my settings for this device":

Displayprofile_50_1.png

 

Any calibration done based on the Acer profile will likely be bad. Acer is one of the worst offenders when it comes to shipping defective and broken monitor profiles, along with Asus, Dell, Samsung, BenQ and a few others.

Color was accurate on windows 7 and windows 10 (used the same monitor).
Only had the issue when I upgraded to windows 11.

OK, but this isn't about the monitor - it's about the monitor profile that is used by Photoshop. These bad profiles are often distributed through Windows Update, so it can happen suddenly and out of the blue.

 

Anyway - another potential issue in Win 11 was mentioned by davescm further up: Windows HDR. This can be turned off in Windows color management settings.

I mentioned it earlier, but make sure HDR is off in Windows 11 to use your calibration settings.

Try this:

Press the Windows key + R, type colorcpl in the box and press Enter.

That should bring up the color management dialog.

After weeks of trying different color profiles, finally I managed to get rid of this issue on Windows 11. My solution is:

1) Remove all secondary monitors color profiles from the system (Control Panel->Color Management->All Profiles, select your external monitors color profiles and remove them)

2) Revert all color settings at Devices tab to default (untick Use my settings checkbox)

3) At Advanced tab:

Device profile -> sRGB

Viewing conditions profile -> WCS profile for ICC viewing conditions

Default rendering intent -> Absolute Colorimetric

All the rest selections -> Proofing and line art

4) Restart computer

5) Open Adobe Acrobat DC and revert back settings at the Accessibility tab to normal (untick ReplaceDocument Colors)

6) Go to Color Mangement tab and change Settings -> Monitor Color, RGB -> Monitor RGB - sRGB

Scientist - Just be aware that IF you are setting your monitor screen display profile to sRGB this is only really a temporary measure. No display screen actually matches sRGB so that means the profile isnt providing Photoshop with an accurate description of the display's characteristics. 

For serious imaging work (that’s anytime when accuracy of image preview is needed) you'll ideally need to calibrate and profile the display screen using a hardware sensor, e.g. a colorimeter with dedicated software.

 

I hope this helps
