DisplayFusion 3.1 Causing Over-Exposure on Wallpaper?

I noticed since installing 3.1 yesterday (and 3.1.1 today) that my desktop backgrounds are suffering some serious over-exposure. Much brighter than normal. The wallpaper JPGs themselves are just fine (viewing in Windows Explorer) but I noticed the issue immediately after upgrading yesterday. Anyone else noticing this?

Hey man, thanks for the reply! I've attached the original wallpaper (before.jpg) and the screenshot of the over-exposure (after.png.) Let me know if you have any add'l questions. Could be something else entirely... just weird that it started after the upgrade.

Thanks!

Very strange, it works fine for me in Windows 7. What version of Windows are you using?

Does the wallpaper look fine when applied with the Windows wallpaper utility?

Hi there

I am also experiencing wallpapers that are significantly overexposed. It also started occurring today after my upgrade to DisplayFusion Pro to 3.1.1. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate RC1.

The problem also occurs if I use the Windows wallpaper utility even though the JPGs look fine through IrfanView. However, if I uninstall DisplayFusion and reboot my machine the problem goes away. When I reinstall DisplayFusion the problem comes back again.

Let me know if there is any more info I can provide.

Cheers
Paul

Hi can you please retry the application with the new version and report back if this issue keeps happening? http://www.binaryfortress.com/displayfusion/#download

Uninstalled DisplayFusion before I left yesterday (already desperately missing my window k/b shortcuts!) and let Windows apply the wallpapers this morning... they show up just fine. Do you have a link to an earlier version of DisplayFusion... one prior to 3.1? Thanks!

Installed 3.1.2, wallpapers still overexposed. Restarted my machine, wallpapers looked ok until first change, when they again became overexposed. Something to do with the new crossfade on change perhaps?

I have added a new setting to version 3.1.3 (not released yet) that will allow you to disable the new transitions when the wallpaper changes. I will be interested to see if this setting corrects this. Thanks!

I updated to version 3.1.3 today. The new version continues to exhibit the same 'over-exposure' behaviour unless the transitions are disabled and my machine is rebooted (just shutting down and restarting Display Fusion doesn't clear the issue). I'm happy to leave the transitions turned off, so thanks for adding that option.

I'm having some issues troubleshooting this issue, as I can't seem to reproduce it on any of my machines. Are you running any software that could have installed any gamma control software, like any Adobe CS applications, or possibly other graphics editing programs?

I do have the nVidia Control Panel software which has gamma control - it is still set at its default setting. I also have Photoshop Elements 7 but I don't know what sort of gamma controls it has. Other than that I have a few image and video display apps (eg, IrfanView, VLC Media Player, Breezebrowser).

In an effort to cleanup the DisplayFusion forum, this topic is being locked and archived because it applies to an older version of DisplayFusion. If you are using the latest version of DisplayFusion and would still like some assistance, please create a new topic and I'll be happy to help you out. Thanks!
