it's annoying the hell out of me
When you're shooting raw it's 16bit, when you're saving for web you're saving as 8bit. That's the only explanation I've been able to come across
Does this look like what you're talking about?
this is doing it with the exported jpgs from LR when I load them in CS2 to resize them
the unresized jpegs look fine
and what is really confusing me is that it didn't used to do this
so resizing your images make them desaturate?
all I did was resize, it doesn't matter what quality I save at either
using FF to look at one image and Microsoft RAW image viewer to look at the other image.
So in other words you're looking at a jpg from raw in one window and a jpg saved for web in another window? amirite?
I don't know, I give up
One of the annoyances of color profiling. Open the resulting file up in ms image viewer and you'll find that the colors are still what you wanted, but not so when in the browser. Press ctrl+y in photoshop to see proof colors so you can see what it'll look like in the browser.
convert to adobe rgb if using your pics for digital use. Adobe1998 for printing.
Change the colour profile to sRGB for viewing on the web.
Firefox ignores ICC profiles in images.
All common browsers except safari ignore ICC profiles.
will this make it the same all around, or will it look oversaturated anywhere other then an internet browser
I was having the same issue. Here's what I did:
^ I can't find color LCD?
hmm, I'm not sure what another one that's universal is
you can experiment by converting them to different profiles and dragging them into IE or Firefox to see if the colors change. When you find one that doesn't change, use that one instead of Color LCD
I don't have color LCD either but changing it to "Working RGB - sRGB" worked
What you are seeing is that your working profile was probably AdobeRGB and then when you were saving them and viewing them somewhere else, it was either assuming sRGB or not using a profile at all and defaulting to sRGB which is the default color space of the www.
So you can work in Adobe RGB since it has a wider color gamut, but before saving to view in a browser or on the web you need to CONVERT the image to sRGB, then all your colors will look the same when viewed.
GAWD this is so incredibly heplful, Im always having this problem yet never knew why..time to change a few pics then
Just shoot and edit your photos in sRGB. Your colors will be consistent across the board.
thta or don't use a profile
at least thats what I did last time It happened to me
I do shoot in sRGB
Color LCD is your monitor's profile (hence why nobody else has it). While this will make the image look better on your screen, it will still be wrong on everyone else's. I spent hours dicking around with it, and really the only way to see what everyone else will see is to work in srgb and press ctrl+y to see the proof colors, then adjust the proof image to what you want people to see You have to keep in mind that photoshop is first and foremost designed for print, and it does a wonderful job for that. But for web, we have to jump through hoops
hmm, so sRGB IEC61966-2.1 is the profile of teh internetz?
