Working on my photos in Lightroom getting them looking great, then going to email them, share them, whatever my clients want and they look like they are colored wrong (too much saturation, yet haven't touched saturation) yet in Lightroom they looked great.

Bought a spyder 3 elite recommended by many in this forum, callibrated my monitor and still having this problem!

Any help appreciated

Thanks

How are you providing the images to your clients? If you are posting on the web:
1. what settings do you use when saving the picture in Photoshop.
2. What browser are THEY using to view the images?

If you are providing then with digital media:
1. What is the embedded color profile
2. What application are they viewing the picture in?

Just getting my web site going, I have found that different computer monitors show my website in many different color profiles-some dark & some light my is just right for my eyes.
Importing my photos as DNG's into Lightroom, editing, then Using Lightroom saving as high quality JPEG

As far as the clients Browser for viewing, I am not sure, how would I know this?

My most fustrating situation (at the very moment) of the client viewing the pics is through email and on disk.

Not sure where i would find out what embedded color profile the images are, can you help with this? Thinking i am using srgb. gave prophoto management a try and liked it better for color management, also tryed adobe srgb color was worse.

My guess is that the clients are viewing the images through their email provider when it is email. And when on disk, they take them home to their computer and whatever program they have to open the files with.

Please let me know if i answered you correctly any other information you need just ask.

Thanks

Darker image looked normal in Lightroom, I emailed it to client and was told it was neon looking no good.

Lighter image is refixed in Lightroom (looked too light to me), emailed again, waiting for response.

My thoughts exactly. It's hard to say exactly what you're doing wrong given the lack of exif. I can't tell on the PC i'm on if there's color space information embedded or not.

Very probably this is a color management issue.

sRGB will look oversaturated in a non color managed application on a wide gamut screen.

Use sRGB for web / mail. Embed the icc profile (neither of these images has one). Use color managed applications to view the image. (Most browsers are not, no email programs on windows are color managed that I'm aware of)

Have a read in the link from my sig.
