Everything looks darker and saturated in PE. - Adobe Photoshop Elements

I'm using 2.0 on Mac OS 10.2.6 and have tried resetting preferences and turning off color management. No luck. Another oddity is when I open the save for web window it preview the immages like everything else displays them. Good old PS LE 5.5 works fine though. Hmmm Paul...

    Have you tried creating a new profile for your monitor? If not, it's in system prefs>displays>color. They do go bad once in a while. Frankly, I suspect that's not it, but best to rule out the easy stuff first. Also, have you messed with any of the colorsync settings in system prefs?

    I wound-up turning-off color management in elements with OS X because my prints were always too dark. I was getting better prints from my non color managed programs, like Portraits & Prints from Econ Technologies and iPhoto.

    I turned off color management and profile embedding and life seems to have returned to normal.
