    Hello all,

    I’m having a weird problem.
    I’m using a hardware calibrated monitor(calibrated with an xrite colorimeter) that uses a profile loaded into LUT by color eyes display’s loader. Everything in windows seems to work fine and use that profile(set aside hardware accelerated dxva, which i think ignores the main LUT and uses an alternative LUT, but it’s only used in rare cases anyway), exept photoshop.

    I’m not sure if it’s related to the profile or not, but my blacks arent black. A 0,0,0 RGB black looks very greyish, and if i use a live color picker i actually find out the blacks photoshop shows me are 34,34,34(CMYK, 0,0,0,34). I thought at first it was a profile settings problem but even after many desperate attempts it just doesnt change…
    I tried every possible profile and it still doesnt work…
    I tried to print screen and open the result in photoshop, and oh surprise, blacks were at 34!
    The color picker’s black are of course not showing true black too.

    So i’m there, pretty desperate, any help will be welcome!

    Best Regards,

    Paul-Kenji Cahier
