Photoshop: Yellow Layer Mask.

So basically I've been doing art stuff and it's become apparent that I have a color problem with photoshop I will give you a couple of screenshots to demonstrate the problem.

Hi.
I downloaded the image by eye it's white, and passing the dropper in the information panel indicates R: 255, G: 255, B: 255.
In other words, your target is white.

Now, as you see it's another issue. Have you touched the color temperature of the monitor, it's calibration?

In any case send a capture of the information panel with the dropper on the canvas to see what values ​​they have.

I don't know where you get those values ​​from.

I have taken two samples when I was done and those values ​​don't come to me...




Look in preferences>transparency and range> It's not that you have modified the white value of grid colors.

Edit: sorry, the last paragraph that indicates checking prefrerencias was a comment to michealmedvedv

Kepa, are you sampling the layer mask itself? It seems, from the photos above that you are sampling the white document, which is indeed white. The below is my sample of the layer mask itself (numbers vary as the initial sample was off of a screengrab)

Wow!!! What a mistake :D
Well, in this case, if I don't know, that I know masks use scales of gray I have never seen that yellow tone in a layer mask and I do not see any option for it...

Hello Jerry, I've looked into my preferences and I had nothing that seems off to me. 

But I have a screenshot of another thing that might be the problem.

And yet again I think it's not my layer masks its the RGB channel itself

What's interesting is that the colour you see there looks similar to the colour of your layer mask but I think this may just be a coincidence as that colour really should just set the grid colour. The warning, I believe, means that the colour selected is outside of printing colours. What happens when you set that colour to white? Also, you may want to post your system info so Adobe can have a look - I'm sure they'd have an answer. Go to Help>System Info and copy what's in there. I believe it may be down to a bad monitor profile - if you're on Windows, try this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41PO4TZBedQ or a diff icc profile (assuming you don't have a monitor calibrator).

Try changing the settings to 'North America General Purpose 2'

Awesome! I thought it was along the lines of using an incorrect profile. That said, as Todd mentioned below, it's best that you calibrate your monitor. Look in to it at some point. i1Profiler and Spyder are two good options.

Your display profile is incompatible with PS and causing the yellow tint. The sRGB profile may work, but a better solution is to use a monitor calibrator.
