This is definitely the right forum! Plenty of us GX-20 users here.
Now, assuming you have the Adobe Camera Raw updated, you should be able to select a different Camera Profile in the Camera Calibration section after you open a DNG in Photoshop.
The Embedded profile may have more washed-out colors so try picking Adobe Standard or ACR.
I hope this helps.

Hi thanks for that,

unfortunately I'm a bit of a novice to photoshop too!!!
I am using CS2 and there are limited options. Not sure hoe to get adobe raw update!!
However I did open file in samsung raw converter and colour was so much better so will prob do this then save as tiff and then work on it in photoshop!!!

My bigggest prob it seems is trying to get colour brightness right for printing!!!
It also looks perfect on screen!!!!
