AuthorSubject: image appearance difference between PS in OS9 & OSX   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Adrian Brown
Posted on Sat Sep 27, 2003 8:41 AM

As my images are contrast & saturation critical I have noticed a small but significant differance between the exact same file being opened in PS in OS9(classic) & OSX. I have searched for answers via google/forums without success. I am reasonably colour mng savy and feel I have addressed the obviouse.

My feeling is that there is a difference in how the OS's handle colour specifically gamma. Is this correct. If so what does this mean for me?

Under PS7 OSX my images appear 10-20% brighter and less saturated (especially in the reds) than under PS6 OS9.2(classic) When i boot up in OS9.2 and open the same (all colour settings identical) image in PS 6 & 7 they look identical and correct.

Originally, 8 months ago, i had my screen&printer;(media) profiled and what i saw on screen was what i got from my printer but only under PS6&OS9;(classic) - hence this is where i did all my printing. It also translated well when my files were proofed by a film house.

I now need to print under OSX. As there was always a difference between how my images looked under PS6&7(i didn't consider it an OS difference at this time) I thought it best to recalibrated my screen&printer; but the difference is still there. I am pretty sure the new calibration is correct as i have checked it using an external(correct) proof sample which matchs the file on screen. And what i get on screen (albeit to light and slightly desaturated) is what i get from my printer.

So does this mean i need to go over all my existing image files and add a correcting curves layer - though this seems to be defeating the purpose of calibrating originally.

Any help really appreciated. Adrian
