    According to a "Master Photoshop" pullout in the Nov edition of "Digital Photographer" magazine "Adobe Gamma" is a utility for Calibrating your monitor and it is installed alongside Photoshop or Photoshop Elements...I installed Photoshop Elements 4 last week (bought off eBay, don't laugh) and I don't seem to have the Gamma utility...where is it within the program? or is it a separate install from the Elements CD?

    It SHOULD be installed by default and be visible in your Control Panel where it has its own Icon. However IIRC there is a problem in Windows XP that can sometimes stop it from appearing (or something like that anyway). Basically Adobe Gamma is still present on your system its just that the icon in Control Panel is missing.

    If this is the situation with you go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Calibration and look for a program called Loader.exe or Adobe Gamma Loader.exe
