Windows Photo Viewer Background Yellow Color-Fix

I tried searching the forum for this and I didnt find this issue so I apologize if this is a duplicate.

I dont like the yellowish background for windows photo viewer. It distorts the look of the image especially ones with some transparency designed for white backgrounds. Is there a way to change this background to white?

Thanks

It's actually a bug. Hopefully they'll get it fixed before release.

Known issue, i have it too. I read it's mostly on Samsung monitors after downloading a new driver for it using Win update. You can fix it the following way:

- control panel
- search for color management
- go to Change advanced color management....
- go to tab All profiles
- at the bottom of the list under ICC profiles, there should be a profile that is called sRGB IEC61966-2.1. If not, add it.
- If there is another profile for display listed, like a Samsung profile, delete it

This should fix the problem. You can read more about the problem here.

Its to do with the color management system.

Heres how to correct it:

1. open control panel
2. type color in the search bar and click on the green color management link
3. in the dialog that appears tick the box under your monitor name which says "use my settings for this device"
4. click on the add button
5. There will appear a list of color profiles. You want to select sRGBIEC611966-2.1 and click ok
6. click on the set as default profile button and then close button

Repeat this procedure for each monitor you may have.

edit: @jag odd i didnt see your instructions

This problem was present in Vista too. It's because of Samsung, not Microsoft.

If anybody got this problem, do the trick explained here.
