    :mad::wtc:

    What am i doing wrong? :sad2: I open the images in PS and they look great. Go to Save for Web, and the fade and turn stale. :mad:

    I've tried converting the images to sRGB2342342341 or what ever, and Adobe RGB and Adobe 1998 (i think) and they still come out wrong. :sad2:

    No, adobe CS. Even when i use Save As, and convert to JPG, it trashes the colors.

    Try setting up an action to run that tweaks your curves a bit to bring out contrast and color everytime before you 'save for web'.

    I have a minolta dimage 7i and don't run into the problem, but I would imagine a try at my suggestion might fix you prob.

    I've run into that problem. When you open the image it'll change the working space from Adobe 1998 (for example) to the correct color space (the one you want). You have to go to mode and actually convert the image's color space to the one you worked on it with.

    So if it's shot in Adobe 1998 and you work in RGB31329187 you have to convert it to RGB132872014 for it to look right.

    It usually doesn't happen at all when I shoot in Mode III.

    I dunno, I use Adobe 98 and the colors look the same in raw as they do in JPG.

    Anything i shoot. Settings ? which specs? Manual mode. ISO/F varies. :dunno: Shooting raw, AF-S, Dynamic area.

    Im liking the shots, theyr'e just getting trashed in PS.

    Open the images in CS using file Browser, everything looks fine, I image/resize to what i want. i go to save for web or save as to make jpgs, then the colors get trashed.

    mode3?

    I've tried forcing the image to Adobe 98, ive tried sRGB9849161651, they all come out the same way, "trashed" Maybe i can take a screen shot of the 2 pix side by side tonight.

    :nono: NO NO NO no no no :nono:

    are you shooting raw or jpeg ?

    are your shooting settings to sRGB, adobeRGB or sRGB-II ?

    how are you editing them.. nikon capture, adobe photoshop, bibble ?

    what is your output target and what is your display profile for your monitor ?

    :ugh:

    Raw/NEF

    No idea how/where to set that

    editing/importing in PS

    Output is for web/screens. Display profile is my 15" LCD on my powerbook.

    A couple of things:

    Your camera's shooting settings specifies what you were shooting in, sRGB, aRGB, sRGB-II.

    When you edit / import in PS you already have a working color space... which you should have set... it's probably adobe rgb 1998.

    When you convert from raw, pick the same profile as your working color space in the adobe cs raw converter. I do this in nikon capture because capture >> adobe -- It really is better.

    Then after you're done editing your files, you need to convert the file to the web profile sRGB-I before saving it as a jpeg.

    Also, apples have different default color display profiles, screwy default gamma points and most screens in general aren't calibrated to begin with. You need to get your display calibrated and get your color profiles in order. What you see is probably not what someone on another apple of pc will see unless you calibrate and get it all right.
