    Color displayed does not reflect actual colors? (read description)

    Hi everyone, I'm not super tech savvy, but I give it my best to describe my issue;

    I work in Photoshop for my online class, and most of the time my teacher has been saying my projects were pretty saturated. I didn't understand why as my screen shows the colors to be pretty light (I'll post some examples here). Later when working on an assignment, I switched to another computer and saw one of my projects; I had to redo all the colors.

    My question is: is there a way to fix my display so that it's more reflective of what the colors actually are?


    ex: 1 is my final, not sure it's super dark or not, but on my display it looks quite on the pastel side, especially 2 where the colors are super bright, but what I initially wanted after switching computers. 3 was what I originally started with, thinking the colors were brighter, but apparently are dark and don't look very good.

    GPU's and monitors are always going to display colors differently if not properly calibrated.

    I think a good thing to try would be to reset your monitor's and graphic card's settings to defaults and make sure they are not using any "movie" or "game" or "reading" mode/presets. These days the default configuration should be fairly close to "okay"

    Also, it can depend on what type of monitor you are using - some different panel types are better at displaying colors/contrast than others.
