Third Party Monitor Profile

Currently running Photoshop 5.0.2 under Windows 98 SE.

When I first installed Photoshop I used Adobe Gamma to calibrate my monitor.

I now have created a new monitor profile with ProveIT and want both Windows and Photoshop to use this profile as the monitor profile.

I have been able to set the new profile as the default monitor profile for Windows but Photoshop still insists that the monitor profile is sRGB the ordinary default profile under Windows.

I have verified this by looking at color settings and RGB setup dialog.

Are there files with the old settings that need to be deleted somewhere ?

Isn't it possible to pick your other profile in the RGB ssetup dialogue? Have you tried running Adobe Gamma again and picking the profile there?

I would recommend you recalibrate, and when asked to save the calibration, name it a unique name.  That will make it easy for you to identify it.  Then you can select the profile you want.

I have saved the name of the profile
and set it as the windows default with
the advance dialog for display settings.

Windows SE sets up the profile as the default monitor profile and lists my
profile.

I also have used the registry editor and set the default profile for Photoshop to my named profile. Still
sRGB appears next to monitor in the RGB setup dialog for Color settings instead
of my named profile which is now is setup as the Windows default.

Somehow sRGB is overriding the my named profile.

delete sRGB and all refence to it, and make sure you made desired profile default not only for photoshop, but for OS, rerun Adobe Gamma also.
