On my Ideapad Y560, whenever the computer detects that I'm viewing a photo, it automatically bumps up the contrast and darkens the colors. Is there a way to turn this automatic function off? I'm running windows 7 64 bit and have an ATI 5700 series graphics card.
I notice it doesn't occur when using Adobe Photoshop, but that could be because the image doesn't fill the entire screen. I don't see any options in Windows Photo Viewer to disable this function, if indeed WPV is causing it at all. I forgot to mention that whenever the contrast/color change occurs, this image momentarily displays in the bottom right corner of my screen, just above the tray icons:
This icon is the One Key Theater program. Pressing the little lighted button shaped like a movie camera, cycles between the different modes. The auto-contrast change was a function of the "intelligent" mode. Moving to "normal" seems to eliminate the dimming / contrast change effect.
