Why does the images saved from Camera in windows and viewed onscreen look different when opened in Adobe Photoschop Elements 5.0?
When I open them with Elements 5, they actually look light and better, like they have been processed some. Why? It makes it hard to edit them when they aren't the same.
Can someone please shed some light on what is set wrong in Elements to cause this difference?

Used my E-PL1 uw yesterday, love the camera and PT-ep01 housing, love the housing. Using ULCS arms, tray, and INON D-2000 strobe. Had strobe 12 plus inches above camera, very slight angle up, set to EA Auto. I shot mostly f7.1 and f8, iso 100, shutter 100 to 160. Dove in Mammoth Lake Clute TX on the C-130 aircraft just snapping pictures of perch. Here's the deal, I knew they where going to be dark cause I barely touched fish with light due to all the particulates in water, and i didn't want tons of backscatter. Used kit lens set at 14mm wide position. Really believe this wide would be better if I used two strobes to light up the area. Saved MF JPEG and RAW. Only looking at JPEG cause I don't have a way to view these RAW in my copy of Elements.
