    I have a MacBook Air (2011) with Lion and i have a question concerning the colour profile.

    When I open (with iPhoto or Acdsee or Photoshop Elements) a photo (jpg format) that I take with my Canon Eos 40D the colours especially the red are horrible. I test with this photo but is the same with all photos:

    If in the Lion I go in the Control Panel - Monitor – Colour the “LCD colour” profile is selected. Like this:

    If I try to change and select the “sRGB IEC61966-2.1” profile the colours of the Mac finder change (are colder) but the colours of my photo are now perfect. Is normal? I can’t have the colours of Finder and of my photos both perfect in the same time? I need manually change the profile every time I work on my photos ? :confused:

    Note that if i open the photo in Photoshop and remove the colour profile from the jpg file, save and reopen with the "LCD Colours" monitor profile the red is now perfect. ! :confused:

    Thank you in advance for your help. :)

    Try using Mac Help up in the Menu Bar. Search for "Color Profile" and "Monitor Calibration" You will get lots of information in your native language.

    I had trouble with reds like that when I shot in jpeg. I use RAW file format in the camera now and edit with Aperture3. PhotoShop Elements will edit RAW files, too. Give that a try.
