Here a while back I bought the "Colorvision Spyder 2 Plus". The profile it saved, which my monitor now uses looked very different from my previous profile. (I've always went by "eye" with Adobe Gamma). The colors and whites were much more subdued (sp?) but my older photos looked fine, and all web images, such as the ones posted here look dead on.

My problem now is that when working on a new image in Photoshop using sRGB or Adobe98, my finished and saved image looks different on my monitor than it did in Photoshop. It has much more of a red tint than what I saw when editing in photoshop. If I set photoshop to use my monitor profile, I have to convert each new image to that profile from sRGB, which my camera saves to.

I've re-ran the Spyder several times and it comes up with the same thing each time. I don't know which one is right, or if my colors are way off to everyone else or what. My monitor is a 19" CRT, Samsung SyncMaster 955DF, .20mm dot pitch...couple years old, not cheap at the time.

I give up...
Any suggestions?

Thanks Mike, but I'm still stuck in my particular situation. I do shoot in RAW, but while in Photoshop, if I work in RGB or sRGB, the finished/saved image still looks different because of my monitor profile. I guess I'm just having a hard time believing the my expensive "Spyder" is wrong in setting the ICC profile for my monitor. I'm going to run it again and see what options I have and maybe come up with a different result. The only option I wasn't clear on was setting the Kelvin temp. I had been using 9300K and it suggested 6500K, which made my screen and mouse pointer pinkish looking. Those are the only 2 options in my Monitor's on-screen menu.

You should have a custom or user mode along with 6500 and 9300. What monitor do you have ? I can see if I have any info on it.

Make sure that color management is being applied only once - in Photoshop - and that your printer is not applying it again, else your prints will look red. I don't know what printer you are using but you should be able to turn color management off at the printer and let Photoshop do its thing.

I recalibrated, and played with the settings in Photoshop. Its probably not perfect, but everything is looking ok now, from edit to web using sRGB. I'm in the process of doing those over that I had already worked on, to get the red tint out.

Thanks for taking the time. And Mike, I hate to sound dumb, but I'm not quite sure how to use that chart,lol. Where would I find those values here on my computer?

Those settings are made from the buttons on the monitor...nothing to do with the mouse.
