To import my images from a card reader I use either ACDsee 6.0 or Photo Explorer 8.0. I have never been happy with Pex 8.0 since upgrading from the previous version, which was excellent. Version 8 always seemed to produce a darker image on screen than the original image.
Since using ACDsee as well, I have now made some direct comparisons. If I import using either programme, Photo Explorer always look darker. If I print from each programme without making any changes to the image, the printed image from Photo Explorer is also noticeably darker than that from ACDsee.
I thought as a digital image the data remained constant but clearly one or other of these programmes is changing it. ACDsee gives the most lielike result so I assume it's Photo Explorer at fault.
Anybody know why this is?
