Adobe RGB'd

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 4, 2012, 6:59 PM
Hi All,

Just a Note to those using Photoshop CS6.

I have found that lately all my images look washed out and have poor contrast and colour when I upload them to any website, but look great on my computer (locally), I contacted DA but they said they were not sure but were confident it wasn't them.
I accepted that and moved on to figure out what it was, it turns out, even if you tell Photoshop not to use AdobeRGB colour Profile when you are saving your image as a JPEG and even in the Settings of Photoshop tell it to inherit the Colour profile in Camera (Mine is set to sRGB) it doesn't care and will save your JPEGs as AbodeRGB.

To overcome this, you will need to Use the Save for Web Function (CTRL+SHITF+ALT+S) where you can tell it to convert to sRGB.
It will add Hyphens to your save file unless you go into Settings and Custom all the fields to 'none', and make sure you max the quality settings.

You photos will now look nice again on DA and everywhere else, and if your like me and have produced a few hundred photos under the AdobeRGB profile you will have to open each one and re save the images....

Fun times =\
