    i just installed cs2 and i love it. only thing is the color is way off for the presets or preferences. i even tried to change the color to "windows" instead of photoshop and it still doesn't do anything. anyone know the setting so that i can make it look like the picture viewer instead of the really "red" photo's that i'm getting now?

    plus, what is the difference really in using cloaning vs the healing brush for dust spots? cloaning works great, but i've noticed that the healing brush is easier and sometimes does a better job.

    thanks for helping the noob.

    healing is softer..cloning is for having to do extensive rectreation of backgrounds..for example say you have a photo of a car but a big ass pole is in the way, you can use the clone tool to do a more cleaner fix. healing is more for things like fixing spots on a face..zits or "dust"

    to fix your colors you're either gonna have to get your monitor calibrated or use your printer and try to match colors.

    no the color is fine, it's a settings under photoshop. when i view them under lets say even the default pic viewer in windows xp, they look fine. in photoshop, they look really red.

    Healing brush is good for areas of fairly uniform density, however when used near contrasting areas it can cause bleed. Also I would'nt use it on areas that have fine detail.
    The healing brush tool matches the texture, lighting, transparency, and shading of the sampled area to the area you want to fix, whereas the clone tool simply copies the sampled area over it.
    As for your colour problem, have you checked that your images are in the right colour space. Image > Mode > Convert to profile. Usual profile would be Adobe RGB, or sRGB.
