    I read mostly the posts that could suit to this issue, but still not solved.
    ONLY In WPG the color depth seems to be poor. Not truecolor (24bit), max
    highcolor (16bit) or less. I read that for some people has icm issue
    (yellowish, sepia, etc) resolved by changing the profile. My colors are -lets
    say- right, but it looks like being posterized in Photoshop. It is a fresh
    Vista Home Premium, with ATI 2400 Pro and Dell WFP2407. I put yesterday the
    SP1, but nothing has changed. OK, I am not in love with WPG - I use picasa,
    photoshop - but really uncomfortable feeling. If someone has the same problem
    or know any solution, please help me!

    AFAIK Photo Gallery only uses the system color settings so it couldn't
    change the colour depth of the display. Neither should an ICM profile,
    though that would affect colour quality if the wrong profile is used. Have
    you tried installing the latest video card drivers from AMD/ATI?

    In Windows you should be using the ICM profile provided for your monitor or
    perhaps none at all if you are using a profile in Photoshop. Be careful that
    you aren't double correcting the color in Photoshop by using an ICM profile
    within that software on top of the correction Windows is already doing.
