    Ok so I just received my new wide gamut Lenovo L220X monitor yesterday. The colours are great, reds are really red and green is really green. I setup the monitor to use sRGB and installed the supplied ICC profile in Vista 64. I quickly found out that IE7 was displaying images that were too red which was due to the fact that IE is not colour managed. I went ahead and install Mozilla firefox and the colour management addon. Now the images in Capture NX2 and Firefox displays my images exactly the same.
    The only thing now is that Photoshop does not, seems like it is not colour managed at all. I have fiddled around with the Colour Settings menu, but I guess I am lost because I am not getting it to display the same as NX2 / Firefox.
    For Working Spaces - RGB - I have set it to Nikon sRGB 4.0.0.3001 just like CaptureNX. Color Management Polices -> RGB set to Preserve Embedded Profile.
    I am opening Jpegs exported from my RAW's in CaptureNX2 with the ICC profiles embedded.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
     
  2. Try calibrating your monitor.

    I do eventually plan to get a colorimeter to "calibrate" my monitor. But that doesn't explain why Photoshop is not displaying the same as other applications displaying the same image on the same monitor. As Capture NX2 and Firefox are the same, I can only assume that the problem lies with the configuration of Photoshop.

    I just got done calibrating my two screens with a Spyder3 Pro and I figured out the issue. Since I have two LCD's photoshop seems to want to default to my primary display's colour profile even though it is on the second monitor, so the colours were off. I forced it to use the profile of the second monitor and all is good. I guess I'll just need to pick up another Lenovo L220X to avoid future confusion :) 
     
  5. That will not necessarilly fix the issue as the calibration data might be different for each monitor.
