    Color Management Issue

    Hello everyone,

    I'd like to know why the color management feature makes everything appear reddish on my screen.

    Also, it's always turned on each time I open a file. And because of it's weird color, I often have to turn it off. If the reddish color is due to a color management issue that I've done wrong, please let me know. Otherwise I'd like know how I can leave it off from now on.

    Thanks.

    canvas - color management
    in painter versions before 11 you could turn it off completely, not so sure about 11 and 12 (I have very limited experience with both of them)
    on the fourth day of glitchmas my painter™ gave to me
    four random crashes, three broken brushes, two system hangups & one corrupted workspace

    Hello ikken,

    Thanks. Yes, I'm using Corel 11 and I can't find the "off" button to this thing in the color management settings...

    Make sure you're using the right profile of Color Management. Go into your settings and post a screenshot of what you have set up for Color Management.

    Try setting it with srgb "wBPC" (With Black Point Compensation) and see if it helps

    Also, older images you have in Painter will have the old profile so you may need to convert them.

    OK, I've switched it to "wBPC" and saved a new file for testing. But when I reopen it, that color management button on the top right still turns on. Is this function supposed to stay on anyway?

    I also went under Canvas>Color Proofing Settings and chose the wBPC and unchecked the box that says to turn on the color proofing mode. But nothing happens. And as you see, the file has this reddish tone compared with the neutral grey of Painter's background. I don't understand... (oh, and since I'm already here - is the rendering intent correct)?


    I apologize for my ingenuity, it's just that I've never had to worry about these settings and terms in Corel 10.

    Actually the rainbow is the color management, what appears to be pressed is Tracing Paper? on your screenshot, press the B/W icon button.

    NVM

    The question is what is your color profile for your OS, and what OS are you running?

    Yes, but I should be more specific. I'm actually looking more for system specs like graphics card, and monitor.

    Sometimes there is a junk profile for color put in by the OS

    http://www.microsoft.com/resources/d....mspx?mfr=true

    So I want to know what is the color management profile, or profile set up by the PC, not the profile in Painter.

    Alright,

    The annoying reddish color shifts seems to be giving others the same problem too. And in my case it happens cause I work with Painter and Photoshop simultaneously, which obviously had mismatching color profiles.

    So this link is a video about color management:

    http://www.screencast.com/t/X6PkMwVS

    So having watched that video, I've set both Painter and Photoshop to work with the Adobe RGB (1998) color profile. Everything should be fine at this point, but it isn't! Painter still gives me that reddish tint as if something is still wrong.

    I'm getting desperate cause I understand that a wrong color profile can mess up the colors in other devices.

    How are your color settings done (provided you use photoshop too)?

    Oh, is this what you're looking for? It must be the color profile that I'm using in windows XP.

    Sorry, although I paint on the computer I'm not very techy...
