    Sounds more like a software glitch, but I sent a FB message to Nicole anyway. Hope it resolves soon!

    Quick thoughts: What's your monitor? What's your Operating system? What version of Photoshop are you using?

    Also, sorry! I didn't mean to tag Laura, I meant to tag @KimJ . She often knows how to fix tech issues!

    I'm about to run out the door, but ICC profiles have to do with color management of different devices. Ages ago when I replaced my scanner, I didn't realize for months that the new software was embedding the scanner's profile in the scanned files, so it created a mismatch when I pulled the files into a different document (layout). If the file looks/works ok, it's safe to ignore the warning. If it's making the file colors go wonky, or otherwise creating problems, it will require some other troubleshooting, which I don't know off the top of my head. I will check back this evening to see if you've gotten it resolved. :)

    @bjc It may be a monitor problem because of an update from Dell. Sending you a PM.

    Hopefully, Nicole is able to help. If it's still an issue, you might try looking at the files in Adobe Bridge. If you set the View to "As Details", it will show you what the "Color Profile" is. Most commonly, the profile should either be "sRGB IEC61966-2.1" or "Untagged". If it's something else, that might be the problem and it could help Nicole determine if it's something on her end.

    As mentioned earlier in this thread, in looking around it does seem that monitor-related software issues can sometimes cause Photoshop to get extra picky, but exactly how to check/correct that isn't something I'm familiar with.
