Photoshop CS Automatically Editing Images...

I've had this irritating problem for quite awhile now, and it has basically made photoshop useless to me. When I import any of my images into photoshop CS (TIF, jpeg, doesn't matter what format) they *automatically* become modified. They brighten, the contrast appears to be turned up very high, and all kinds of artifacts appear because of this. Is there a way to turn this off somewhere in options or preferences? I've looked everywhere with no success. If I need to I can post before and after comparisons but I'd rather not (just believe me, something *is* happening).


What are your default color working spaces, and what color mode are the problematic images in? Also, how are your Photoshop settings set for color profile mismatches?


Nikon software to edit photo in RAW

This weekend I had a family Bar Mitzvah to attend. I decided this would be a great time to try shooting RAW for the first time. I can not believe it took me this long to try. I think I was just intimidated because I did not know what software to use and the thought of trying to learn another photo editing program was overwhelming.

Well people here suggested Raw Shooter Essentials so that is what I used. I read through the manual and realized it was very easy to learn and not anywhere near as difficult as I thought it was going to be.

The control I now have over my photos is amazing. I am upset with myself for taking this long to take the plunge. I sort of feel like I have been driving a Ferrari in first gear because I was too intimidated to learn how to shift.

Well I am just glad I finally did it. I will never again shoot in jpg. What a world of difference!

Now I just need to worth on my other photo skills to get up to a level that I can compete with you guys. That gives me something to shoot for (no pun intended).


I did not have much luck with the Nikon software, but to be fair I did not give it a lot of time and was just sort of playing with a test shot of nothing.

Raw Essentials was super easy to use. I was able to edit about 100 shots in a very short amount of time and I was able to do a lot with them.
