Also, if you have onscreen proofing enabled in Aperture, what you see on your desktop will be different. Desktop pictures aren't "proofed."8-Core Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.2)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 22, 2008 6:27 AM (in response to Locomotief)I beleive that the picture placed on your desktop is the jpeg preview generated by Aperture and not the master file. Is it possible that you haven't update the image preview after you made your adjustments?
try updating the image preview in Aperture, then switch your desktop image to any other image and than come back to your image (just to have it refreshed). this should do it.

Currently Being ModeratedApr 22, 2008 1:37 PM (in response to SeaBeast)Refreshing the previews did not work unfortunately, but I feel there is some logic in both of your suggestions, for which I want to thank you by the way. Probably the desktop image is not the original RAW picture and that is one way or the other the reason that the desktop looks different. Nevertheless I find it strange and I'm not happy with it.
Oh yes, I did not quite follow the 'hardware callibration'. Is there a difference?MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.2)
