I have a problem with correct display of the image.

When I open wallpaper in Gwenview, the image is darker than on the desktop (see attached screenshot). image description

Other programs give a similar effect – when in KolourPaint image looks ok, in GIMP is darker. image description

Please suggest, where I should look for a solution to this problem.

Fedora 25, KDE 5.9.5, nouveau.

Settings in the programs showing it darker, could be they do not read the monitor information, or a gamma setting is different.

Thank you for your suggestion steveebey73742. It was not from the beginning, at first everything was fine. I just noticed this change one day and I am sure, I did not change program / monitor / gamma settings. This could have happened after installing / updating some software, I guess.

I have not found a solution and changed to Fedora 26 with Cinnamon. The question is outdated.
