Faded Colors in Photoshop CS6
May 22, 2013

Attached is a screenshot comparison of an image in Photomatix HDR and what it looks like in Photoshop CS6. The image in Photoshop is really faded. This type of difference also occurs with a painting program I use called Digital Auto Painter. The image in DAP is always more saturated than what is in Photoshop.

I do not have Proof Colors turned on. I have also included screenshots of my CS6 and Windows color management settings. Somehow the colors in the same image should be the same in all programs, correct? I use a Spyder 3 Elite color calibrater and am guessing that or it's profiles is part of the problem.
Please tell me what settings to adjust. I'm not a color profiles guru.

Thanks!!!
