Default red-faced scanned images in photoshop cs


help! the majority of images that i import in from my digital camera on to iphoto and photos that other clients give to me are seriously bright orange/red in all flesh tones and in any other places that contains any red pigment. i have gone into channels and turned off the magenta channel which eliminates all of the problem...but you guessed it, no red anywhere. have reloaded photoshop, checked my monitor,opened the same image in illustrator cs and the photo is fine.

would appreciate any help! thanks,
suzanne

Susanne,

You said you checked your monitor, but did you check your monitor profile? It sure sounds like you need to create a new one.

See here for more info and guidance...

Suzanne,

Is there any reason you are working with CMYK instead of RGB images? Does your workflow demand sending the photographs to Prepress?

Yes, this job requires cmyk for prepress. from the looks of the link Ramon sent to me, it is my monitor. Now I have to figure out what to do with the 10 other Hitachi CM715s that I have in the Mac lab!

Thanks for your help,
Suzanne

Ramon,
thanks for the link. look what i found there:

I have a Hitachi CM715. I also have 10 CM715 in my Mac Lab at the college where I teach. We are on OS10.2.8 at the lab and I am on 10.3.4 here at home.
Is there anything I can do to correct this problem?

Thank you so much for your help.
Suzanne

Suzanne:

See if you can get round the Hitachi problem by following Gary's instructions here:

[I don't have one of those monitors so I don't know if this will work or not.]

problem?


We slugged this out with several users here and Apple Forum.
I can't recall anyone reporting success with that monitor.

You may want to try asking Hitachi...you never know.

Suzanne,

Actually, Paul beat me to pointing you to G Ballard's site, that's why I didn't mention it.
