Photoshop and my lame monitor
« on: June 15, 2008, 07:22:25 pm »
OK so whenever I open photoshop I get this message saying that the profile for my monitor is not valid.  I say 'use it anyway' and fire up the software.  But all my whites are a light green when in photoshop.   Does anyone have the foggiest idea how to correct this?

Clean your monitor the morning after Alfatina?  :?:

No seriously, I would rest the SQ7 layers and find out if it affects any ipo's in the middle frame stages, if I would know what the hell I was talking about that is.

I found a way around it. 

Rather than telling photoshop to use the 'defective' profile.  Just tell it to 'ignore profile'.  My whites are white now.

Yeah...  don't use your monitor or your printer's colour profiles.  They're generally hopeless.
