Re: Strange Colour Issues in SPP - Help needed

I tried using Windows own calibration and it helps tone down the colours a great deal. There is still a difference between viewing the image in a colour managed app and viewing it in Windows Image viewer. I still prefer the Windows Image viewer. If I set the colour profile back to the Spyder one, the colours become more saturated and yellow. The contrast is also greater. Am I to assume the Spyder is giving an incorrect colour profile? Or is it setting the wrong gamma?

I may have to move this to the PC Software forum as it's clearly not a Sigma issue.

Here are the images showing Windows calibrated (top) and Spyder 3 calibrated (bottom). The Windows Image viewer is on the left in both images and SPP on the right.

EDIT: Now I've uploaded those images, they don't look any different. Obviously do on my PC when I change profiles!
