    I've just recently started to use PS to touchup my photos and I'm something’s been bothering me. Why is it that when I'm viewing a jpeg in PS it'll appear perfect, but when I view it outside PS it'll appear darker with harsher tones? I’m assuming it may have something to do with gamma, but I’m not sure. I just want the photo to appear the same outside PS. What can I do?

    I have mentioned this before in another post. I use PS 6.0 so I would assume that later verions have this also. PS installs a monitor adjustment that is located in the control panel. Adobe Gamma that takes you through a monitor calibration. I use to have that same thing happen. I would adjust the photo in PS then open it in say Paint Shop and it would look completly different (like Crap) But I don't have that problem now opening it in whatever I use to view the photo once I adjust it in PS.

    Hope that helps.
