Adobe Bridge Image Previews

Look completely different when opened in Photoshop - why?

When I'm looking at preview images in Adobe Bridge I'm finding that they look nothing like they do when opened in Photoshop.

One particular image that I'd done some work is so different I didn't recognise it in Bridge. Colour-wise it's nothing like the actual image. It's not even close.

I've tried the various thumbnail & preview generating options, but this makes no difference. All CS applications are colour synchronised.

What can I do to ensure preview images from Bridge (currently set to 'Always High Quality') are more like the real thing?

What version of Bridge do you have one what OS? This sounds more like a version problem.

I know this thread is a few weeks old, but since no one posted a solution:

I just solved this issue myself: things appearing different in Photoshop than they do when I save them.

What to do:

View => Proof Setup => Monitor RGB
View => Proof Colours (On)

Then what you see in Photoshop and what you see post-save appear the same.
