What color space did you process your photos in? Try to use sRGB.

Also, Windows photo viewer is not color managed, unlike photoshop or firefox.

Do include the ICC profile when saving the results and use a picture viewer that can handle such information.

Are you using any monitor calibrators? (e.g colormunki, spyder)

Because I faced the same issue when I used the color profile that was calibrated with a different setting...

Guys I still can't solve the problem. Is my camera color setting problem or photoshop? I tried ProPhoto RGB, sRGB and Monitor RGB. all don't work. When I view in just double click its color is exactly what I process, but once full screen or slide show its totally different.

Did you check your monitor's color profile? Right click anywhere on the desktop and select "screen resolution" and go to the "color management" tab... Check what color profile are you using...

I try it out tonight, but once i check what do i need to do next?

Btw, i yesterday checked my camera setting for color space is adobe. Is this the cause of the problem too?

Hi, i'm not using any of them.
Then this is your point to start. It seems PS uses some default profile, with calibration the profile will match your screen and the colour rendering reflects technical reality.

Where: Check the list of photographic shops (price guides), I remember seeing it in TK Photo.
How: Follow the instructions of the calibration software. Afterwards, make sure to always use the colour profile created for your computer / screen combination. Do not apply any vendor profile or default stuff from your OS. Drop all programs that are not colour managed, no point using them.

1) Yes, might even be worse. It's an issue of this program. Have a look at this website and try for yourself with different browsers:
http://www.gballard.net/psd/go_live_page_profile/embeddedJPEGprofiles.html
2) Yes. For more details have a look at section "Features" further down: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_image_viewers
3) Use colour space sRGB or any higher one (although with consumer equipment we won't see the difference anyway). All exports should be done using sRGB unless your next partner / print lab can use the other (wider) colour space.
Do not use any specific monitor profiles in Photoshop.

1, use only image viewer software that support color management.

2, the image viewer software come with your camera supports color management, it is free and good.

3, for color space, depends on your final output, for lab print, web use, save files in sRGB jpg, for design house, give them in Adobe RGB tiff. give CYMK only when somebody know what they want and ask for it
