Why is the color different when you view a pic in Photoshop vs. Windows Picture & Fax Viewer (the default jpeg viewer that comes with Windows)? Is there some calibration or color space issue that I need to watch out?

When viewed under Photoshop, the pic may look perfectly exposed. However, when viewed under the Windows Pic viewer, it may look over?

Windows Picture & Fax Viewer does not understand color space settings. convert to srgb in photoshop and it should look fine in the picture and fax viewer.

Thanks Chaotic. I'm already using sRGB and it's still different :dunno:

You need a hardware calibration tools like colorplus for your moniter if you are using Win OS. You will appreciate the difference immediately. It cost about $219 from CP.

Works for both CRT and LCD but windows OS only

not really. windows viewer dont take into account the colorspace tag on image files. thus will display wrong colors almost all the time.
