Hi,

CS6

I did a ctrl and another nearby key and my bright vivid magenta layers have turned dull, history doesnt show an undo, if I create a new layer and scribble on it with the magenta thats still bright in the foreground /background color it still paints dull, its as if whatever I did says to photoshop  make use of this colour dull,  so I am unable to continue as I fear the entire file is not trustworthy. I backed it up a week ago but not since and a lot of work has happened to it this last few days I cannot afford to redo.

 

Just what happened and what undoes it ?

update...

I see its RGB/8/cmyk  next to the file title and originally it was rgb/8   so can I flip this back to what it was without affecting the original colour values as its vital they are exactly what they were rgb, else all the careful colour values will not work in the flight sim, which is delicate to 1 rgb change, honestly, if its converted it to cmyk which throws out a lot of bright values, then converting from cmyk will not recreate them, but undoing the conversion to cmyk will get me back to where I need to be.

History doesnt even show the step.

This is potentially a killer for me, I need to undo rather than 'convert'.

Could you have hit Ctrl+Y for proof colors. If so Ctrl+Y again will remove.

You could remove the shortcut in Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts > Application menus >View > Proof Colours. The menu will still remain.

 

Also remember that "Proof Colors" is just a view, your document was not changed.

Hi, ctrl Y deleted !

good riddance, scared the pants off me., 1hr trying to work out what happened.

 

at least it didnt harm it, though 1 layer with aliased edges became anti aliased, dont know why.

A change in edges had nothing to do with Proof Colors. Like I said, it affects the displayed screen  view only and translates the colours between the document and the screen.  In a similar way that zooming the view in and out does not change the actual image, proof colors does not change the document content at all.
