    Any experts here on color management/profiles? To make a long story short, my pictures look different under different programs. I'm using OSX Leopard on a MBP hooked to an external 20" ACD, with the ACD as primary and the MBP lcd as secondary.

    Adobe programs that I use like Lightroom 1.2 and Photoshop CS3 show the picture just the way I want it to be. Viewing the picture under Firefox shows the picture to be a bit less saturated, while viewing the same picture with Safari and Mac preview show the picture to be oversaturated. So how do I fix this?

    The picture in question is a PSD file, saved using sRGB. Hopefully that helps. :x:

    What do you mean calibrated to? Like what setting its under? For the MBP, its under "Color LCD" display profile, with no other options. The external is currently set to "cinema", but does have options underneath like sRGB and Adobe RGB. Does that make sense? :dunno:

    Oh wait nevermind, I unchecked "show profiles for this display only" under the MBP, now shows the others profiles. So is it as simple as changing the color profile to sRGB? :dunno:
