RE: Photoshop CS3 extended - windows XP When choosing filters to apply to an image (usually a standard RGB photograph - 8 bit) the preset background colour is a really horrible beige! How can this be...
I am having a little trouble understanding exactly what you mean, so bear with me. I tried to reproduce the issue you are having and could not. I am not totally clear on what you mean by a "preset background color."
I'm going to go from simple to more complicated.
In filters before you apply, press the alt key and restore defaults to all the filters you use. The cancel key turns to default.
Save your pic to a photoshop file, not a jpg, png, etc. Make sure that there is not a little lock up in the right corner of the layer. Is there a an actual background layer that has the color you talk of? Does the filter pick the color up in photoshop file?
Go to edit again and the preset manager. Select swatches. Use the
arrow next to the text box to see what you have selected.You can reset
swatches to factory. Make sure you don't have something crazy like
pantone metalics set.
Go to image, mode, assign profile. Change to another rpg (adobe.)
Go to image, adjustments, take a look at the color balance and saturation settings. Do you see the color>Does it correct?
Make sure you do not have a photo filter or alpha channel that you accidentally set to apply automatically. You can check photo filters out in the image adjustments drop down toward the bottom. One of them is pretty orange- beige. Alpha channels can be a color mask for filters. should have been cleared by restore defaults.
Under edit, check your color preferences. You will see that you have selections from the drop down at the top of this popup. Make sure it is not custom. North American general is generic enough. You can switch the RBG setting here.
Under "Window" select "Channels" to see the colors in layers. if you click the "eye," it removes that color layer. When you do that, is the color you complain about there?
I think if going through this list doesn't solve your problem you should email me a pic so I can test it and see! Very intriguing. Good luck.Please let me know in by rating and commenting if this didn't work. Thanks.
