Been awhile, and I have to use my fiends PC over school semester since i bust mine. On his pc for some reason, when I make an image in photoshop and save it as a bmp, png, gif, or jpg file and i open it, in another program other than photoshop, it appears incredibly darker. This even happens when I open the file in InDesign. I'm pissed because I have to have some flyers made out by today and it keeps printing out way too dark to see anything. Is it the computer's settings that is causing this or i it just just these adobe programs I am using? Please help, I have faith in thee! Also on sie note, how the hell do you get colored text in InDesign?

I'm no Photoshop expert, but i would imagine it's the Photoshop settings. What you could do (as a last resort maybe) is do the picture in photoshop, then copy it over to Paint and see if that makes a difference!

I have the same problem except the saved image is lighter than the one I was working with. Quite annoying when working with photos.

Try playing with "file->preferences" (in photoshop 4.0, it might have changed by now) I think photoshop has some settings that make it so it can display things more accurately with respect to how they will look after they are printed or something.
