How to Overcome Windows Photo Viewer to Make a Yellow Image

By -
Windows Photo Viewer is an application for viewing images on Windows systems. It works great on some computers, but some users have complained that Windows Photo Viewer applies yellow ink to images and backgrounds, making them look so bad.

Windows Photo Viewer is not supposed to display the image in yellow. But sometimes the color algorithm runs into trouble and starts adding weird colors to the image. This is a common problem, and the reason is not yet clear, it could be a third-party app or a system issue.
If the Windows Photo Viewer application on your device has a yellow tint in the image, then follow these steps to resolve it:

Restart Application and Computer

How to Overcome Windows Photo Viewer to Make a Yellow Image

First, let's see if this is a temporary bug that can be solved by just restarting the application and the computer. What is done, of course, is restarting the device and applications, then waiting to see if the problem is resolved. If it's still there, then do the next step.

Change Profile Color

If the previous step didn't work, then we have to change the Color Profile from Color Management. Here are the steps.
  • Open Color Management by searching for it via the Start Menu.
  • Make sure you are on the Device tab and click Add.
  • From ICC Profiles, select sRGB IEC61966-2.1 and click Ok
  • Check Use My Settings for This Device.
  • Click the Close button.
  • Now reopen the Windows Photo Viewer app and check if the issue is resolved.

Screen Calibration

If it's still not resolved with the previous steps, we can try to calibrate the screen. Here are the steps:
  • Open Color Management.
  • Go to Advanced tab.
  • From Display Calibration click Calibrate Display.
  • Follow the instructions that appear on the screen.

Reset Microsoft Photos

The next step if the previous solutions also can't provide a fix, there are several Microsoft Photos settings that might be the cause.

It should be noted that it is not recommended to change the existing settings, as it could make the problem worse. All you need to do is reset the Microsoft Photos app, to change it to the default settings.
  • Go to Settings page.
  • Open Apps
  • Search for Microsoft Photos.
  • For Windows 11, click the three dots and click the Advanced option. For Windows 10 select the application and click Advanced Options.
  • Click the Reset button.
  • Wait for the process to finish.

Reinstalling Display Driver

Sometimes, the display driver can crash causing problems. All you need to do is reinstall the relevant driver from Device Manager.

The first is to uninstall the existing drivers, then restart the device, and Windows will automatically detect and install the right drivers.
