Monitor’s ICC Profile

Well… I’m not an expert on this section, but just solved my problem regarding this. So thought, I’d share.

I used to see the white as yellow on my Photoshop!! My monitor is Samsung SyncMaster 920NW. This problem occurred both in Windows XP and Vista!! Explored different forum but didn’t get the perfect solution. Then I started to check out different settings in my Vista control panel.

Here is what I’ve changed:

Go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Color Management.

I’ve first selected the display device from combo box and then checked ‘Use my setting for this device’. Then removed the active ICC profile and added Adobe RGB (1998) as default profile.

That’s it! Well it worked for me. You are on your own risk… 😀

  1. HOLY CRAP!  THANK YOU!  I just installed Vista and was having this same problem.  I was also having the issue of when I tried to “Save for web” the image would tint blue.  I have been looking for an answer for a day now.  I tried this and it worked perfect.  THANKS Again.

  2. Thanks but I did it differently. First I go to Control Panel>Display>Setting>Advanced>Color Management
    then from there I click on Add and then select Adobergb1998
    I hope it will solve my problem on LCD Monitor…
