Photoshop help?

When I view photos in photoshop they are always brighter than they are when I view them in Explorer or any other program. It seems like there is a different gamma curve or something. Anyway, does anyone know how I can correct this? I have the adobe gamma plugin guy in my startup group, but is there another setting within PS? I'm using PS7 if that matters.

It's the difference between a color-managed environment (Photoshop) and a non-color managed environment (nearly everything else).

Go into the Display Properties, Settings, Advanced, Color Management, and delete the color profile. Photoshop will stop using the monitor profile you created with Adobe Gamma and you'll see the same results both places.

Of course, this is a bad approach because working in a color-managed environment is a good thing. Those Adobe Gamma adjustments you made improved your display capabilities. The correct approach is to soft proof to your monitor (View, Proof Colors, Monitor RGB) if you want to know how the image will look in a non-color managed app.
