Imported jpegs and PSD's all looked washed out or dull compared to the originals

In the Comp preview window all my jpegs, psds etc. look washed out. I've never noticed this happening before with other work I've done but I usually just work with video footage in after effects. In This scenario I'm importing a design I've made in Photoshop and I immediately noticed that all the colours seam really dull compared to the original image.

My Project is due today and I didn't expect to run into this issue! Please any advice would be appropriated!

I have After Effects CC and a win7 machine.

In cases like this, I set my project color settings working space to NONE. It hasn't failed me yet. There's nothing in the project that needs fancy color settings.

Thanks for the quick response. Unfortunately my color space is already at "none". Any other ideas?

In that case select a working space so that you can interpret your JPEG/PSD properly. It sounds like they have embedded color profiles. When you're not using a working space AE will ignore the embedded color profiles.
