    I've been working with some images I've taken, and when ever I save the file as a jpg, it looks fine on my computer. If I upload the image to Flickr, it loses all of the adjustments made to the image, so it looks like the original. It's definitely not monitor calibration because it looks fine on my monitor looking at the local file on my machine, but it looks different in a web browser. Anyone ever have a similar issue with this?

    unless you print a lot or print on a really nice printer

    shoot in sRGB
    edit in sRGB
    export in sRGB

    makes this easy and good lookin.

    My color space is Adobe RGB 1998, which is what I was told by two photography professors to put it at. Maybe they were referring to print instead of web. If so, should I just use sRGB?

    I just converted to sRGB and it still didn't retain my adjustments...


    Edit: I see a bit of a difference, but it's not exact

    what types of adjustments are these? are they layers?

    How are you converting to srgb? Is it flattening the file? are you then saving the jpg?

    post two of the same image, one before you started converting, and one after.

    oh, and yes, adobe 1998 is for print. The web is all in sRGB.

    curves, high-pass, levels all on different layers. It's not flattening the image. I'm saving it as jpg. Should I try flattening it, then saving as a jpg then just unflatten it?

    edit: Actually, one of the versions I have is already flattened and it's not retaining them. Also, Photoshop is converting the color space for me

    OK.

    don't use 'save for web' function, it blows.

    try this. (it WILL flatten your image, so if you want a copy with your layers preserved, save it seperately.)

    go to edit>convert to profile - change output box to sRGB - hit ok.

    then go to file>save, and select the type as jpg.

    if jpg is not a choice here, go to edit>mode>8bit

    then save as.

    Let me know how that goes.

    How are you saving as a JPG without flattening the layers? CS3 wont even let me unless its flattened.

    If you haver layers, you need to marge all the visible layers before saving it as a JPG.

    Like I said above, the version I'm working on is flattened.
