I have a question about Photoshop's colors. When I import and edit a picture in Photoshop CS2, everything looks fine. After I'm done, when I export as a low-compression (high-quality) jpeg and open it in the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, everything looks different. This is not a minor color difference, but a huge difference in hue, brightness (the Windows viewer is much darker), and even constrast. Has anybody else had this problem? Please help.

Mike

This would probably be better asked in the Software > Editors forum, but the quick answer is that you probably are using Adobe RGB colorspace for editing, and trying to view in sRGB. Check some topics related to color management.
