when im exporting shit from my newly installed photoshop it looks different as gif/png than it does inside photoshop.
i think my rgb profile is fucked. i remember setting it up before, but forget what i did.
some kind soul lend me a hand?
shit looks desaturated when exported :(
I prefer not to colour-manage. As most of my work goes to print shops, I let them determine which colour profiles to apply at RIP stage. But what do I know.
im talking strictly web work here...
what are your current colour settings? and in what application do you display the exported images?
the default settings for photoshop effectively have color management turned off. so if your opening an image tagged with adobe 98 it will ignore the tag and treat it as though it were an srgb image (its defualt working space) which would leave the image looking desaturated.
some browsers don't support the adobe98 tag - once again leaving your image looking desaturated.
I had that issue lately, but can´t remember the workaround. maybe something like this helps: check if the source image has a profile assigned, try "don´t colour manage", export.
safari displays sometimes displays crazy stuff, that other browsers ignore.
as far as i know, safari has color management for PNG files, while other browsers (like IE) don't. i used to get around this by just exporting gif files.
thing is, the image is darker / more saturated in photoshop. if i export as gif, the image appears lighter in safari.
then, if i use a tool like color schemer's eyedropper on both the gif and the photoshop window the colors are different. YET if i use the eyedropper in pshop it shows the same hex code as the one i'm getting in color schemer for the gif export. bizarre!
it almost looks like photoshop is showing me the "pc" darker version inside the program. if that makes any sense whatsoever.
post the image
edit - assign profile - assign adobe98
edit - convert profile - srgb
then export your gif
