Display discrepancies with Nikon View & Photoshop
Hi there all!
I have this weird problem when I view photos with both Nikon View and Photoshop CS.
My recent shots were taken all in the SRGB I format, and apparently, it seems to me that Photoshop tends to render pictures more "vividly".
I wonder what could be the problem. I've set the RGB color spaces in both programs to the default SRGB, and even tried to set to use the embedded profiles in the photos.
I've played with the rendering intents, black point compensation, dither, rendering engine, but the same thing still persists.
I've done a screenshot of the differences. The one on the left is opened with Photoshop, the other one is opened with Nikon Viewer.
Thanks a lot, and Happy New Year!

Another thing, if u check the gamut on both pics.
the pic on the left, if u were to sent for print out, u may not get the red that u want, becos the "paper" cannot produce such a vivid colour.

Try setting both the programs to point to your default monitor profiles.

noticing the same thing here. In PS version 6 or 7 and in Widoz viewers the file is more vivd than in Nikon's software.

Not a clear idea but I do have some suspion that Nikon's sRGB and PS's are not exactly the same.
Grin if you try viewing on LCD and a profiled CRT on the same image is the same software be prepared for some mild hair tearing. Worse still if the LCD is on a laptop angle of screen plays a part in the contrast tone seen.

I'm using a profiled CRT here....
