    Default Need help on colour management with new pc and monitor

    Hi guys,

    I've tried reading up old threads and doing trial and error but nothing seems to work so I hope to be able to get some help here.
    I recently got a new pc and monitor and now I want to start doing my editing work. It seems that the colours are weird.
    I'm using acdsee and ps. The colours in acdsee and ps aren't the same. The colours in acdsee looks much better and natural then in ps.

    How do I get them to be the same?

    Thanks!

    I hate to spoil your mood but there is no way you can get the colors to appear the same with these two softwares.

    It is due to differences in the color profile management algorithms.
