Other people aren't seeing problems like that on MacOS. (on WIndows it's always a bug in the video card driver)

You might have a third party plugin causing problems, or a system utility (especially haxies). Until you can figure out the external cause, try disabling OpenGL drawing in Photoshop's preferences. That should avoid the most common issues.

Did Photoshop CS5 ever work on your system, and then something changed?
Or has it never worked?

Yes, pictures can display, but at little darker than normally.

I bought the program, the upgrade, 10th december and it works good until 17th dec, but I didn't use the preview before recenrly. I checked another art-files and there are good. I resave a early-art file and there displays like good.

Forgot It!

the darkerproblem can be 32-bit color-mode.

I move the layers to a 8 bit-mode and save file and it works with the preview.

The file was fixed to 32-bit mode firm I changed to 8-bit mode.

Preview and many other apps don't know how to work with 32 bit/channel HDR data very well yet.
