I've been dealing with this issue for 3 days now, reading different stuff, but could not find the correct answer for it. Let me show you what i mean.

The picture on left is shown in Adobe Bridge, the picture on right in Photoshop.

The problem is that I thought Photoshop colors are correct (I use sRGB on both of them). That is why I tried to match color from Bridge to Photoshop-succeeded. I thought that problem is solved as windows photo gallery viewer also showed image as Photoshop.

However, when I uploaded the same image to Fotolia and Shutterstock (and also to photolab software) the color of the image was the one at the left. To my understanding this then would be the right color of the image.

My question therefore is the following: 1. how to match the color of image showed in photoshop to the color showed in other software, 2. do/did you have/had the same troubles and how did you handle them.

Thanks for your answers in advance!

This should work for you:
View->Proof Setup->Monitor RGB

and than check:

View->Proof Colors (Ctrl+Y)

Thanks skvoor for your advice. Photoshop now shows the image "the right way". But when using for example camera raw, this function can not be used (as far as I know). This way it is harder to make correct adjustments for photo. Is there a permanent way to make this work and use sRGB everywhere (I do not fancy setting some other color profile in photoshop). Or perhaps am I doing this totally wrong and should make some changes to my workflow?

Would you skvoor or anyone else be so kind to write formula that works for you (in order to have correct colors)?
