When I take a screen shot and paste it to Paint (Windows XP), everything looks fine, but when I take a screen shot and paste it to Photoshop 7.0 the colors come out some what different. For example, blue comes out green.

Not only this, when I save an image (graphics) on Photoshop and then open the image up with Paint, my browser, etc. the colors are different than how Photoshop displays it.

I been up all night fumbling with this! If anyone can figure this out, I envy you.

Thanks,
Richard

Hi Nightzeus,

Are you using a custom colour profile in Photoshop?

Good Vibes!

Hey Lobo,

I went to Color Settings and selected "Color Management Off" and now all my programs display the same colors..

Thanks,

Hi Richard,

That's where I was gonna send you next, to disable Color Management. Glad your problem is solved.

Good Vibes!
