    Hi all

    I'm having what I consider a weird problem between iPhoto and Photoshop Elements.

    I keep photos from my digicam in iPhoto, and today, for the first time, I was trying to edit an image with Photoshop Elements.

    The problem is that, although the image is displayed correctly under iPhoto, as soon as I load it in P.E., the picture just looks weird. See the attached image for what I mean. On the right is the photo in iPhoto and on the left is the one in P.E. This is a screengrab

    Can anyone tell me what is going on? I'm quite puzzled

    Thanks for any help

    weird. several things:

    1) tell us what kind of computer you are using, RAM, processor, graphics card, etc.

    2) what kind of picture is this? jpg? how large? does this happen
    to all the pics?

    3) what version of PE are you running?

    it seems like PE is opening the image with some of the color contrast/brightness moved to the extreme...

    this looks like an issue that Adobe have released a Plug-In for

    To quote

    "Ignore EXIF Color Space plug-in:

    When opening images from digital cameras, Adobe® Photoshop® Elements 2.0 reads the ICC color profile and EXIF metadata supplied by the camera to determine which color space it should use to interpret each image. Certain digital cameras do not embed ICC profiles and always specify the sRGB color space in the EXIF data, even though they allow the photographer to use different spaces. As a result, Photoshop Elements behaves as if each image is tagged with an sRGB ICC profile.

    Placing the plug-in called Ignore EXIF Color Space into the Adobe Photoshop Elements 2 Plug-Ins folder will instruct Photoshop Elements to ignore the color space specified in EXIF metadata. In this mode, Photoshop Elements will ignore the EXIF color space. Photoshop Elements will continue to ignore the EXIF color space setting in files unless the plug-in is removed and Photoshop Elements is restarted."

    Spot on!


    You were spot on. I installed the plugin and now all is fine. I thought I was doing something wrong, due to my lack of knowledge about photo editing, especially with Photoshop Elements, alas, this time it wasn't me

    Many thanks!!!

    iPhoto and Photoshop issue

    I am also having a problem with these two apps. Since I installed the Photoshop Elements 2.0 Trial (I have since ordered the full version. Its on it's way...), whenever I open a photo that is in my iPhoto library (untouvhed or retouched up w/PS Elements), iPhoto will not smooth out the image as usual. Usually, when i click on an image in iPhoto, it starts out slightly boxy and pixelated, but then focuses. It's not doing this now. It just stays blurry.

    Any ideas? I'm not on the computer this is happening on right now, so I cannot try the plugin, nor am I sure this plugin would work with the trail version, just intersted to know if this has happened to anyone else.
