For those of you not on the IP Yhaoo list, this might be of interest:

We have read quite a few comments about users experiencing a magenta cast.
I want to make an official comment on the proper use of the different color
profiles as well as an area that often can cause a similar effect. First
regarding the profiles. The two most common color temps to use are EDAY
(daylight) and ECWF2 (mixed lighting). We have seen many users using the
EDAY profiles and viewing under fluorescent light, this will cause a magenta
cast most noticeable in blues. The ECWF2 profiles are more accurate for
viewing under mixed lighting conditions and most likely will remove the
magenta cast you see with the daylight profiles. The second area is color
management of the image. It is easy, especially with older digital cameras
that do not tag the image with a source space to import an image into
Photoshop and force it into Adobe 98 color space. If the image is not
already in Adobe 98, improperly assigning it will cause strong magenta casts
in the image when printed. This is do to the fact that the image data is
really in some other source space.

Now if you don't fall into either category above we would like to hear from
you directly so we can piece together what is happening. We have made
changes to our profiles to handle out of gamut blues more gracefully which
is a difficult area for most profilers, but this would have little affect on
in gamut blues.

Regards,

John
