I'm on a laptop with Windows 10 and recently Adobe started causing my screen to dim dramatically when I'm in the app. I can't find a setting that makes it work. My display is fine for everything else. The only odd thing I've found is my "Change brightness automatically when lighting changes" says it's enabled (even though it is not). Everytime I uncheck then box it is re-checked when whenever I come back to the setting.
Are you running plugged in or on battery? Some of those things will change "depending... " on most laptops.
Is Enable Display Color Management checked in Premiere's preferences?
No it is off. Turning it on does not solve the problem either.
Go to EDIT > Preferences > Appearence then you will get options like brightness increase indicator
This is puzzling. I can't find anything nor have ever heard of anything that could do that.
Of course, there are the settings in Preferences in Premiere to adjust the brightness of the UI ... that charcoal background ... but I would guess you mean that the image in the Program monitor is darker, not that the UI background is darker?
Look in the power settings of your system. There may be a box you need to check or u ncheck.
Hey, did you ever get this problem resolved?
I have a Surface 3 Laptop with Windows 10 and the same thing is happening to me. When I open Adobe Premiere Pro my laptop monitor dims drastically. It is very frustrating, especially since I have a Microsoft laptop.
I downloaded the latest display drivers directly from Intel. That did not fix the problem. It's making my Premiere experience very annoying.
Your laptop is reacting to the power demands of Premiere and auto-dialing back display brightness is what I've been told happens on many "portable" devices. So it's not a Premiere "thing", but an OS thing.
So, how to solve that OS problem?
I am facing the same issue too. Please give some solution
If it can be changed, you will find it in your power or performance settings.
I changed my power settings from performance to balanced and it solved this exact issue. good luck...
I just encountered this issue for the first time on a Windows 11 using a desktop PC. I will look into the power settings workaround.
Before searching for solutions, I resolved this by de-selecting HDR in Display Settings, which immediately returned to the normal screen brightness. I then selected HDR again, and everything worked.
I'm not certain of the root cause for this, especially when reading the thread that attributes it to an OS issue, but it only occurs when running Photoshop or Premier Elements...
Your computer's power use settings in Windows are probably either set for conserving power or a "balanced" setting that leans toward low energy use.
So to to your Windows power settings, and ... change the options so it runs at full power period.
