I am a user of DELL Ultrasharp 1905FP and I use an i1 display (ver1) to calibrate this panel. After done many times through trying over all sorts of color temperature, I still have one problem which is quite puzzling to me. Let me brief here:
I am a window xp user. I only use two ICC aware software: Photoshop CS and PhaseOne Capture One. The image viewer I use was ACDsee which was recently replaced with a freeware called FastStone Viewer, none of them is ICC aware. After the calibration work has been done, I opened three files representing dominant red, green, and blue, respectively, in Photoshop and ACDsee. Here are the results:
As you can see, the red sample has shown a very different tone between Photoshop and ACDsee, while the other two (blue and green) are quite similar.
My question is: why is there such a difference in red? Can anyone enlighten me please? I assume the RGB color in ACDsee is what most web surfers see from my web gallery, however, in Photoshop I see a very different red... Color fidelity is becoming more and more crucial to my workflow. Really hope to have a better understanding on color management. Thanks for any input
