CS3 and strange monitor behavior (color shift)
Apr 27, 2010

Hope this is the right forum to pose this question. I'm using a dual monitor setup with CS3. I have a 24" Soyo PVA panel and a 24" Dell PVA wide gamut panel. When put the photo on the Dell and the click the menu bar to move the photo on the screen / drag the photo, the color balance of the picture changes and becomes more saturated. Once I release the title bar the color balance shifts back. I've also noticed that this happens when I use some tools such as filter/distort/lens correction. The previews in some of these filters also seems more saturated. I don't notice this effect on the Soyo monitor. I'm working in Adobe RGB but have converted some images to SRGB to see the it has something to do with the extended gamut of ARGB. The same thing happens regardless of the color profile of the image.

Any ideas? It is unnerving to see the color shift within CS3.

Thanks, John
