    Does this happen to you guys? When I am editting my pictures, the picture opened in CS3 is brighter than the finished picture for some reason. The finalized picture tends to be dark and more contrast than the one I am looking in CS3. What can be the problem?

    Is your monitor calibrated? Is your printer calibrated to use the same color space you're using in CS3?
     
  3. Make sure you are not editing with proof colors active.
    It is the first thing under the View menu and normally Ctrl+Y toggles the mode.

    I calibrate my monitor with Huey Pantone.

    It is on Working CMYK, what is it suppose to be?

    I usually always work in sRGB. Most printers will only print in sRGB. In the future I'm sure that will change. :smile:

    ^^ Sorry I dont see sRGB in the proof options. I see Windows RGB, Mac RGB and Monitor RGB. I think you're talking about camera settings?
     
  7. Don't worry so much about the setting as being sure that it isn't active.
