didja recently upgrade PS?  or do anything like that?

some others have suggested this, but i posted it as a tip last week, so i'm
just gonna recycle it and see if it helps you...


[recycled tip]
Images not looking the same in your browser as they did in Photoshop?
Colors off?

Photoshop tries to compensate for color display on your monitor by making it
appear as it would in print. Very handy if you're doing print work, but you're a
web gibbon, so you don't need it.

Good thing you can turn it off:
- File > Color Settings > RGB Setup
- uncheck "Display Using Monitor Compensation"
