Hi.
I just got laptop, installed Photoshop,and noticed that all my pictures have a bluish color to it. As if you would need to adjust color temperature setting on CRT. If I will open notepad on my laptop, page looks perfectly white. I called the Toshiba, but the guy couldn't help me. I don't want to invest in LCD color calibration system as I'm not doing much editing on the laptop.
Does anybody knows how to deal with it?
Thanks.
Robert.

This may be a dumb question, but when you installed PS did it present its own monitor calibration option? I would think that it would get it as good as you can get without external calibration...

(Anything other than that thought/suggestion and I'm stumped...I have no idea how Windows handles monitor color settings)

No, I didn't see that.
Where in Photoshop you can do that?
Thanks.

Hmm...I just looked (in my PS 7 for Mac)...I don't see it now...

I do know, however, that when I first installed PS 6, after the installation was complete and teh requisite restart was done, the first time that I started PS it asked me to calibrate the monitor, and gave me the choice to do it now or later...

It's possible that this option has been removed from 7, or that perhaps since it knew that I had already done that, it didn't ask again.

I sell computers and a few Toshiba notebooks as well. If your screen isnt blue all the time I would not suspect that your notebook if faulty. It is possible that your taxing your memory and resources when you load PS and your pics. Load one up and check your resources. My guess would to be to contact PS tech support and see what they say. Could be a driver issue with the Video Card and PS. or PS just may not like your Video card in you notebook. I am sure that thier tech support can help.

I spoke to technicians twice. No results.
Help! Anybody?

You did'nt mention what you have for a operating system or version of PS. I'm running XP Pro, w/ PS 7. If your running the same or close, click into your start menu, go into settings, control panel, and you should find Adobe Gamma there. Hope this helps. George

I havent met a problem like this before, but:

Try to attach a monitor to your laptop (if you can). And then you will see if the problem is still there in the output monitor, then something wrong with your laptop, if its ok, then your LCD has some troubles. You wrote its not because of the color temperatures. Maybe you should download some refreshments for your videaocard, but if I were you and if I wouldnt like to thinking about all this problem, I would give the laptop back to the Toshiba guy, and ask for another same type, for my money. If the guy couldnt help you, he must change your laptop to another one.
Then try to install PS again, and you will see if the problem is still there with the new laptop, then somethings wrong with that type of laptop. But I think after you get the new notebook this all problem will disappear.

Try this link. I went to Toshibas site and did the "Ask Iris" on the problem. These were the hits that came back. See if any of the answers help your situation.
