I've been dying to ask this for awhile now, but I wanted to try and wait because I know the forums are filled with hundreds of posts requesting help, but this is starting to really get to me:

Issue#1: Colour Syncing is very off. Some CS3 programs, specifically Photoshop, display colours very differently than they actually come out. I think this may have to do with colour profiles, but I don't know how to fix it...

As you can see in the above screenshots, I select bright red, but end up with a dull orange-red. Even after I export the file and close Photoshop, if i open it with Preview, it still shows the same way. But if i open it up in another application (eg. Firefox), or any other computer, it shows up fine.



Issue#2: Photoshop says I'm running Mac OS 10.4.9, when I am running 10.4.11
Issue#3: CS3 is failing to recognize my 5 GB of RAM, only 3 GB.

Any and all help is much appreciated! I am a student in Graphic Design/Broadcast and so I depend on these apps every day for school! Thanks again!

Issue #1 - I'm assuming it has to do with RGB vs CMYK modes. Maybe you work in RGB but export/save as CMYK and you see color changes. Also the photo you provided is of the Apple Color picker, try changing back to Adobe color picker under preferences > general to see if it solves your problems.

Issue #2 - I don't know, sorry

Issue #3 - The CS3 suite are 32-Bit programs which is why it won't be able to see/use your 5 Gigs of RAM

Thank you so much! It's fixed. I switched the colour picker back to Adobe (not sure why Apple's was selected)! Thank you so much!
