    Taken on our trip to the U.S. Virgin Islands for a wedding in February.

    30D / 17-40mm F4L

    I'm having issues with Color spaces, and wondering what's the best workflow for preserving colors when saving images for the web.

    Any tips would be greatly appreciated. The colors in this photo are very desaturated compared to the original. I've been working in sRGB, which is the default on the 30D.

    sRGB is the only color space for web, aRGB or ProPhoto is better for prints, but you're kinda screwed for web

    looks decently saturated to me :dunno:

    maybe your monitor needs to be calibrated?
     
  5. Wow this must be a popular spot. I saw this same photo on clublexus like 8 months ago. But I do have to admit your pic looks better than the one posted on CL. :bigthumb:

    It's mostly lacking in the green areas. I'll look into calibrating my monitor, but the problem is evident when i look at the image in Photoshop, then look at the saved jpg. you can definately tell a difference in the colors.

    it seems like color information is being lost by the jpg format. which confuses me because I'm working with a jpg to begin with :dunno:

    Could even be just a gray background vs white background...

    ok so i figured out the problem. Somewhere in my workflow, the image is being converted to Adobe RGB. the image I posted above is an example of what happens when the web browser tries to display AdobeRGB in sRGB... the colors look desaturated.

    here's how I wanted it to display:

    original

    So I learned an important lesson here. I'll need to track down where it's being converted to Adobe RGB.
