In lightroom 5, my white in my histogram has turned beige. Also when I edit a photo into Blk & White, my colors are different shades of beige. I don't know how it became like this or how to fix it. Can someone tell me how to fix? Thanks so much for your help!!

Sounds like the result of a bad color profile. Are you using any custom profiles?

I'm betting on a corrupted monitor profile. Switch it to sRGB and see if the problem goes away. Instructions are here: http://members.lightroomqueen.com/Kno...

Victoria, I checked and the monitor is set to sRGB. Thanks for the link! I may have my husband calibrate my monitor. I printed one of the photos and it prints blk and wh but shows up in lgtrm with different shades of beige. Praying that it's not a corrupted monitor profile. Thank for your input!
