Just when I though I had escaped winter, it's coming back with a vengeance this weekend. Bring it, General Winter!!

Above is a sketch I did the other day for my new banner. Gotta start getting ready for cons! I need to work on my table and some other cool things. I'll keep y'all up to date here and on SGVY.

And now for something educational:

How to Synch Colors in Photoshop CS4 Between the Monitor and Cintiq



So, are you a Cintiq user who just noticed that when you're using CS4 that Photoshop fucks up the color on the Cintiq while it's fine on your LCD monitor (be it monitor or laptop screen)? Well, you're not alone. When I upgraded to Snow Leopard, the colors weren't quite right in Photoshop on the Cintiq screen. When I moved the pic from the monitor to the Cintiq, colors would be wrong, and when I moved it back, they were fine again. So, I went on frenzy to find out what the hell was going wrong. No one on the Internet had a clue, and updating my drivers and messing with my monitor settings in OS X did no good. Then, I realized this was once again all Photoshop's fault.


To fix the problem, go to Edit in the toolbar and select "Color Settings".



Next, click "More Options". This will expand the settings window.



You should now see a checkbox with "Desaturate Monitor Colors By:" next to it. Click the checkbox and set the percentage to zero. Yeah, that's stupid, but it works. As you can see, I went ahead and saved my profile as fuckyouverymuch.csf so that I can pull it up in future if Photoshop crashes or I have to reinstall it. I highly recommend that you do so as well to save yourself headaches.



Click OK, and voilą! Your Monitor and Cintiq are in synch! HOORAY!!

Well, that's it! I hope this helps out. After the difficulty I had figuring this out, I figured some of you out there might appreciate some help. Good luck!

Snow in my room.
