When i go to select any colors in photoshop only my greys all have slight red to them. i uninstalled and isntalled to make sure i did nothing with color settings, and this only happens in photoshop all of the sudden, no other programs. and my color settings are at default i asked a friend of mine and both ours are the same. anyone have any ideas ?

it should be saying

Image.jpg @100% (RGB/8)

any ideas?

Same thing happened to me when I got a new monitor.. right click on your desktop, seelect properties, click on setting stab, click on advanced, click on color management tab , select the color profile and click remove

One technical possibility is that one of the guns in the CRT (if it is a CRT) is going bad; or that the monitor cable is not seated firmly or something equally-mechanical. Otherwise it sounds like a gamma problem: the color-profiles and other such adjustments which are supposed to enable the hardware/software to actually produce the desired color on the physical device.

Now, nothing in the computer-world really happens "all of the sudden." What happened, no matter how slight, immediately before you first started noticing this? Also... are there any other working-situations, with your normal workflow for this computer, where you ordinarily would notice this, but do not? Can you call up the same image simultaneously in two windows with two programs and say "here you see it, here you don't?" How about with first one program then the other but not at the same time? These are things to try.

I think I read somewhere "#" means the color space or something doesn't exist..something like that. I am not too sure but it's definitely something to do with the setting. I will look it up somewhere I am sure I saw it...

I doubt that it would only be happening in PS if that were the case.
