    Fucking gay.

    I uploaded a new profil pic of myself on FB and it got all colorless and made me look pale and shit.

    To the left how the picture looks when uploaded on Facebook. To the right is how the picture actually looks on my hardrive and on another place I uploaded it on.

    Anyway, I just increased saturation with 15% and it almost came out like the original.

    I just thought it was kinda senseless and weird that the pics changing after uploading them on facebook.

    they're hosting like a billion pics, I don't blame them for reducing the information a bit.

    Is there some sort of different web standard for color they're using to save space?

    also i think sometimes firefox loads images in a different colourspace
    or at least, it did on osx 10.4 until you correct it

    What does that have to do with anything?


    It's too colorless. It makes me look like a zombie.

    ....My facebook pictures look fine in terms of colour whenever I upload them.
    Maybe your colour space is off when you export?

    No. Look at the pic to the right, its same pic uploaded to a different site, but the other site didn't fuck around with the pic unlike Facebook.

    Weird, I haven't had any issues, though the last time I uploaded a photo in colour to facebook was sometime back in august. Maybe they've changed their upload settings since then. :squint:
