did u open it with RGB or CMYK, and using embedded camera colour profile?
u shd select embedded (first radio button) sometimes it defaults to the last radio button.

Definitely looks like a profile issue, it's very odd you don't get that dialogue box pop up that kippy mentioned.

what happens when you create New document?
dialog box:
color mode: RGB
transparent
colour profile: sRGB IEC61996-2.1

To choose an RGB working space:

Do one of the following:
In Windows, choose Edit > Color Settings.
In Mac OS, choose Photoshop > Color Settings.
Under Working Spaces, choose an option from the RGB menu:
#29
CMYK will always be less vibrant than RGB so that part is normal.
#30
To open a file using the Open command:

Choose File > Open.
Select the name of the file you want to open. If the file does not appear, select the option for showing all files from the Files of Type (Windows) or Show (Mac OS) pop-up menu.
(Mac OS) Click Show Preview to preview the selected file. This option requires the Apple QuickTime extension.
Note: Previews display faster if they are saved with the file. In Photoshop, select Always Save for Image Previews in the File Handling preferences to always save a preview; select Ask When Saving to save previews on a file-per-file basis.

Click Open. In some cases, a dialog box appears, letting you set format-specific options. (See Opening and importing PDF files and Opening PostScript artwork.)
Note: If a color profile warning message appears, specify whether to convert the pixels based on the file's color profile. (See Calibrating and creating a profile of your monitor.)

yeah we use CMYK because it's more true colour to the print output ... have to send images to printer (as in printer who prints the images, not the colour printer canon epson etc)

it might have something to do with the monitor profile and calibrating too. although i must say that image looks a far cry from the vibrant one. if cant find solution now, maybe use "levels"? i tend to put each arrow end at the beginning and end of the curve.
#32
