Hi,

I noticed something odd with Photoshop CS5 the other day. I had an image I'd been working in. I'd up'd the vibrance and had nice colors showing while working on the PSD file.

I then saved the image as a .JPEG file. When I opened the .JPEG file in 3 other applications the colors were different than what was showing in photoshop. (Less contrast). When I sent the .JPEG to the lab, it printed with the lesser colors too.

I was just wondering if this is a common thing, and if there is something I've overlooked, or if I should be doing something else to my images before saving as JPG to keep the colors?

Cheers

What 3 other applications were you using? Are they color managed? If you have both the psd and jpeg displayed side by side in Photoshop do you see any difference?

Also, do you soft proof before sending your images to be printed?

Hi Bob_A

Thanks for the rapid reply!

I didn't reload the JPG in Photoshop, sorry. The other 3 applications where Picasa Pictureviewer, Paint Shop Pro (version 5... old, but I love it), and the camera shops own software for uploading the photo's to the lab for printing.

Sorry for my ignorance, but what do you mean by soft proofing?

Cheers

Those programs are not color managed. That means that they will (more or less) correctly display only images in the sRGB space. An image in the Adobe RGB space will lose saturation and contrast when displayed in them. Since this is your case, it seems likely that it is the source of your problem. Set your camera's jpg color space setting to sRGB (or if you shoot RAW, set the converter's output space to sRGB) and Photoshop's working space to sRGB.

Convert to sRGB when you save to jpeg.

I had this same problem a few months ago. All my beautiful work (lol) looked hideous when viewed in Windows or online, etc.

Thanks guys. I'll give that a shot and see if that is the issue.

Cheers

Yup they hit it on the head. I had the same problem when I first used CS5 on RAW files. Once I set it up to convert to sRGB everything was fine.

What really sucks is when you use Lightroom and save a srgb then want to make one change in all your photos using CS5 (or other) and CS5 default is to open everything in ProPhoto, then you forget to change it all back to srgb.....I spent an extra hour last night reconverting.

Tip: Set up PS as a secondary editor as well, with preset for sRGB...
