Yes it's weird, it's like PS uses a specific color profile in it's workspace, but then doesn't save it in the files when you export them. I had the exact same problem a few days ago with the layout I'm working on for my project, it's why I replied to your message, I fixed it by playing with the color space settings, but I can't even remember the final manipulation I did to fix the issue. I think I finally created a new empty file in Photoshop with a sRGB profile (or maybe it was with no profile at all) and duplicated all my layers onto this new file.
Do you have a sample of one of the images you're using in your layout (even just a small red rectangle would do it), that way I could do some tests on my computer and see if it does the same thing and if I can maybe found the manip to fix it?

Otherwise you can visually compare the different settings by having both Photoshop and your image viewer open at the same time, with the same file open on both, that way it's easier to see if it matches or not when you pick a different profile.

@tipoto

sorry for not replying - I'm overwhelmed with the amount of work - the time right after the end of the summer vacation is always super-busy for a graphics designer.

---

As for the colors - I've just duplicated all the graphics into a new document and everything is ok now.

Just a quick mockup - how this theme could look in vertical layout.

Little too busy under the game title wheel - for my taste.
But with a narrow screen I can't dim the background (near the edge) without loosing artwork visibility.

I was planning to abandon this project - since I'm working on 2 other concepts
Now I feel obligated to finish it to some extend.

working prototype screenshot below.

almost finished, only 2 things to do:
- spinwheel is squashed when in 16:9
- pinch/skew of snap is broken when switching from 16:9 to 16:10
 
available options:

for marquee
- display marquee
- display current emulator logo (mame, snes, etc.) on cool background
- display "generic" marquee

for cab screen
- static screenshot
- gameplay video

for background
- fanart
- flyer
- static screenshot
- gameplay video

---

I'm pretty happy with background - all "effects" are applied on-the-fly over standard scrapped artwork. It works well for different formats (even with narrow and tall flyer). I've added (conditional) masks to hide art edges - this way I don't have to stretch it to full layout width, the same applies for vertical screenshots or videos. All automatic and works pretty good with auto-scrapped artwork (it was my main goal).
It works even with worst case scenario - only roms, screenshots and wheel.

Everything scales beutifuly with aspect change between 16:9 and 16:10 (except that pesky pinch/skew)

This looks amazing. I recently just found AttractMode for a frontend after trying out a whole bunch of others and for one reason or another not liking any of them but so far AM is my favourite.

I can't wait for this theme to be finished, it looks to be perfect for my tastes.
