Using Photoshop CS (mac version), I adjusted some large ( 63. m ) Raw files, did some additional touch up work in psd. format, then saved both a high-rez and low-rez version in tiff format: Byte order IBM PC. The files were burned onto a dvd and given to the client, who played them back on his PC notebook.

Two of the nine colored images appeared only in black & white and had a lot of grain in them on the clients machine. The same two images were like this when displaying both the hi-rez and low-rez version. When the same DVD was played on my mac ( G5 2 gig ) everything appeared normal. The 2 problem images were the smallest file size of the group ( 30m).

Does anyone have any idea what the problem here might be and how to correct it?

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Andre

What program was the client using to view them on his PC?

Ed.
The client has tried Windows Picture viewer, Photoshop Album Version 2.0, Paint and has also tried inserting it as a picture into a MS Word document all without success.

Yes, the files all show tif. extensions.

I’m guessing it’s a problem with his machine or the DVD. Can you test it on another PC? Burn it again?

Ed,

Funny you should mention the DVD. I have only just started burning DVD’s using the G5. Last Friday, I burned several for image backup and one imovie. When I tried to play them back on my G4 Powerbook, the discs were ejected immediately after insertion. After calling Mac Support, the problem turned out to be that I was using DVD+R rather than DVD-R. While the G5 could handle both, the Powerbook could not recognize the DVD+R format.

However, it doesn’t make sense to me that if it is a DVD issue, why would some files appear normally and some not?

Don’t know. Some of the files may have been corrupted slightly in the burn process. That’s why I suggest re-burning to see if a second one works better.

Ed,

I’ll try another burn on a DVD-R and see what happens. Thanks for the responses.

if you burn any files for clients, you should verify the disk (Toast does this automatically). you might also want to try burning the disc at a slower speed or use different media. some drives are pretty sensitive to what speed it was burned and as to what media they support. (what brand did you use?) cd/dvd burning can be really crazy voodoo.
