this is really starting to bug me! when i scan a slide and it looks good in the scanner preview window(dimage dual), it looks a stop over when it automatically opens into ps. so i bring it back down til it looks great...but then when i open the jpg in i.e., it looks a stop under! what the hay is going on? if i take the jpg and open it in i.e. on my sons pc/monitor, it looks fine, like it did in ps on my monitor.
my question:
what could explain the difference between the ps and ie display of the same jpg file on my monitor?

Simple, your scanner software is using one set of color settings, Photoshop is using another set of color settings, and your browser is using yet another set of color settings.

It's easy to fix if you know what you are looking for and where to look but it's a real booger if you don't.

Assuming you are using a PC, got to your control panels and run Adobe Gamma. Follow the instructions for calibrating your monitor and save the profile with a distinctive name so you can find it later. Now comes the fun part.

IF you are using OS XP go to your display preferences and in the color tab select the color profile you created in Adobe Gamma. This should take care of your web browser.

In Photoshop go to your color settings menu, (first of second pull down menu) and in the color space select the profile that you started your calibration with for the adobe gamma. NOT the Profile you created. I.E. you calibrate for AdobeRGB 1998 your start with AdobeRGB 1998 you calibrate it and name it AdobeRGB 1998photonyc . The monitor gets set to AdobeRGB 1998photonyc, and Photoshop gets set to AdobeRGB 1998.

Then in your scanner software you need to find it's setting for color and set it to AdobeRGB 1998.

Hope that makes sense.

Also you might want to check your monitor (color adjustments) and set it to 6500K. You use your controls on the monitor itself.

Here is the reason. On a PC, IE is not color managed, while Photoshop is. If you are using profiles other than sRGB, the image will look different on a color managed application like photoshop than it would with a non-color managed application like IE.
