Windows 7: Photos have a red cast

Photos have RED cast - Your worst nightmare.

Adobe Community: Printing magenta/red with CS5 forums.adobe.com/thread/677627?start=120&tstart=0
Hello: please take a look at this Adobe threat, started 2 yrs ago and still active. This is the problem I have and it is STILL unresolved, and from my web searches, there are a rather large number of unhappy folks still searching for a cure for this issue ... still no solution from Adobe either. The jpegs. come out of my Nikon D3 just fine, load into Photoshop just fine (color "normal"), as soon as Photoshop loads the screen blips, then all (ALL) pic in the file are overlaid with a magenta cast. This is not a color cast issue for just the adjustment of one picture, it is the entire picture series in a file; like a red virus. I have tried reinstalling CS5 and Epson drivers with no luck; this issue simply renders use of Photoshop and any printer a red mess. I have Windows 7/32 and Epson R3000 printer. I will attempt to attach a sample photo:.

A fault with the color management profile can cause problems. Photoshop is color managed.
Type color management in the search orb - add SRGB if it it isn't already there and set it as default with use my settings ticked. See if this makes a difference. You can always change this back.
Ideally you should have a calibrated color profile for your monitor. Sometimes the manufacturers profile are wrong (yes crazy isn't it). Without a hardware colorimeter I think this software is pretty good and way better that the inbuilt Windows calibration-

For the last time, I request that you upload the actual JPG's you are showing here.

You may be 100% correct in your observation of some problem about something triggering the magenta color change. But lots of us here would like to see it for ourselves, since I for one have NEVER EVER SEEN THIS SYMPTOM with pictures imported from my original D200 from years ago, and my D300 for the past few years. I have NEVER SEEN THIS SYMPTOM, and I've used Photoshop starting from v3 up through v4, v5, v6, CS3, CS5 and now CS6.

This is not to say I won't see it with your particular shots from your D3. But if you persist in NOT letting us try and see if we can duplicate your problem using YOUR ACTUAL JPG's (not screenshots of a Photoshop window as you've done here), it will simply be impossible for anybody to help you out.

Please... post the actual JPG's you are showing in that PS screenshot, and let us see for ourselves whether or not we duplicate your symptom or not.

Please.

dsperber ... yes, working on the camera upload. I am learning how to do this, so don't give-up just yet if it is not what is needed; I'll try again. I appreciate your assistance. Steve

Photos have red cast

mjf & dsperber:

I do have a Colormunlki photo and I have calibrated my monitors. Attached is a copy of the same (Crystal -red) photo, but directly from my camera via Windows 7> Pictures, prior to uploading to CS5. I hope this is what you want, but if not, can I please have a bit more instruction on how to provide a required photo. Thank you again, Steve

Download the trial version of lightroom and see what happens in there, and then you can edit in PS and see what happens again.
Join elements village forum, very helpful and friendly(not saying anyone here isnt), but it is a more photographic forum then this one.
The magenta is worse than i thought, i assumed it was similar to my own issue whereas it just had a slight tinge to it.
Those in the bridge screenshot are bad.

Hi King...:
Good suggestions on the Elements site and Lightroom, I will do both.
If you back-up in this thread you will see an Adobe thread address for what is being reported about this issue on the Adobe Photoshop Forum; for the past 2 yrs. According to the Adobe Form, Lightroom is not a solution either. Adobe technicians are speculating this is caused by conflicting ICC codes. This might be a good "guess" on their part, but they are not providing a real working solution ... yet. The only response I've had from Adobe is, "this could be caused by many things, post your question on our Forum". Gerrrrrrrrrr!
Thank you, Steve

That _DSC1331.JPG you uploaded was exactly what I wanted.

I have now opened the file in both Photoshop 6 (quite old), as well as Photoshop CS6 (latest). The results were identical in both cases: NO MAGENTA COLOR SHIFT.

Of course my monitor is an Eizo S2433W (24" LCD at 1920x1200 resolution), with ATI HD4850 video card, and I am NOT using any special ICC color profile. I have not "calibrated" the monitor and it is under the control of the Eizo "Screenmanager Pro" software. It is running PURE DEFAULT, as far as color.

Note that when I did open your JPG (in both 6 and CS6) I was advised that your JPG reflects the Adobe RGB 1998 color profile (obviously how your Nikon D3 is set up), whereas my own "working space" setup in Photoshop is sRGB. This article provides a very good comparison of the two.

Here are my own CS6 color settings:




Anyway, the fact that your JPG color differs from my Photoshop setup simply produced the message warning about this, asking me what I wanted to do about it.




Just to see what the effective difference was, I opened your JPG three times... each time selecting a different one of the three choices offered. Note that in NONE of them did the MAGENTA COLOR SHIFT occur. Hopefully the colors of the results shown below appear properly on your monitor.

(1) use the embedded color profile of Adobe RGB 1998




(2) convert the colors from your Adobe RGB 1998 to my "working space" sRGB colors:




(3) discard the embedded color profile of Adobe RGB 1998 and do not color manage at all (I'm not sure exactly what that means or does, but it's obvious that the color saturation drops off a bit and the result looks "paler", i.e. "less colorful"):




Once again, the results using CS6 were the same as using 6: NO MAGENTA COLOR SHIFT on my PC.

Did you have your own monitor "calibrated" using calibration software and colorimeter hardware? What CRT or LCD is your monitor? What video card and driver in your PC? Are you using an ICC color profile with your monitor?
