Colour difference (slight yellow tint) in images and games

Post by alborzka » Thu Mar 01, 2018 9:39 pm

I've been noticing a yellow tint on my gaming and also when viewing images: For example, if I go to this URL: ... =973644940
and I see the first photo (among the 3 in the row), it appears red as thus:

But when I click on it and the larger image appears, a yellow tint (noticeable whenever I game as well) is applied:

Any ideas why this is happening? I imagine it has something to do with a colour profile, but I can't seem to change anything about it.

Could be your color management mode in the browser.
For example in PaleMoon and probably FireFox, type about:config in the address bar and then search for 'color_management'. Try toggling the color_management-enablev4 and try that. If it doesn't help you can toggle it back.
