View Full Version : match colors in PS and Painter

10 October 2008, 04:35 AM
I want the colors displayed to match in PS and painter. I created a color profile using Monaco EZcolor but I'm not sure if PS is using it. If The document is created in Painter and saved as psd does it have the wrong color profile embedded? I told PS to not color manage and the result was much better but still not a perfect match. If someone could give me some help on what the best settings to use in the "Color Settings" dialoge box, that would be great thanks.

I found this information from John Derry, one of the pioneers of Painter, very helpful. I was having colour issues when transferring from Painter to Photoshop and back again until I applied John's settings.

Thanks Joe,

That was very helpful to see all his settings in both PS and Painter.

Ok now the bad news the colors still do not match. It's a fairly obvious difference even to an untrained eye. I have both apps open on the same monitor side by side, colors look richer in painter and more vibrant in PS. Any other tips on how to fix this? I tried playing with the desaturate option in PS but that's not it.

Thanks any more help would be greatly appreciated.
