Whenever I open my NEF files in CS3 (or CS2), the color looks pale compared to the original opened with Nikon Capture Editor. I have set the RGB in photoshop to Nikon sRGB to match that of Nikon Capture Editor (NKsRGB.icm), my default monitor profile was set to the smae setting as well but all these actions proved futile. The color from CS3 still look pale.

Things get worse when I sent those pictures for printing (converted to jpeg using CS3). The color of the prints turned was out and the photos were dark. It was a total nightmare for me.

Could anyone provide some advice on what is wrong with my setting and appreciate on advice on remedial solution.

Thank you

With best regards,
