I have a problem on my mac (os x) which I just can't figure out. Example:
I create an image in photoshop and use the hex colour #ff8040. Create the image, save, it. All's okay until I use the built in color meter to check the color and it tells me the colour is actually ff6263. I use other apps (gimp) and check it on windows and they all tell me that the colour is in fact ff6263.
So initially I thought it was a photoshop problem but when I open the image with preview it thinks the colour is ff6263 as well. It isn't just the eyedroppers getting it wrong either as the image is noticably darker.
I am 100% sure that the colour is in fact ff8040 so why are these 2 apps getting it wrong (maybe others would as well but these are the only ones I checked). It happens no matter what colour I use.....Photoshop and Preview always think its darker than it is.
Does anyone have any ideas? This is driving me crazy!
