Photoshop Problems

Tue Aug 21, 2007 5:01 am

Evening all

I have a problem that needs resolving. In photoshop when I adjust contrast and sharpening, it looks good actually in the photoshop program itself but when I save, there is far less contrast and the sharpening has no effect. For example...

Photoshop on the Left, Saved photo on the right


This makes it very difficult to edit photos to an acceptable standard, because I have to over-estimate everything. I have no idea how to resolve this, so any input at all would be greatly appreciated! I use Photoshop CS3.

Thanks

Tom

Hey, is the "saved photo on the right" in sRGB? I always save my photos in sRGB (edit in Adobe RGB) and there are no problems.

When I come to save the edit the "Adobe RGB" box is always checked, David.

So the saved photo is in Adobe? This is probably the issue. Most image viewing programs ignore profile settings and display colours incorrectly - as Aero145 suggested.

I seem to have fixed most of the problems, but there is still a slight difference contrast wise.

Thanks, I'll try both and check out the difference  Smile

At the risk of making a fool of myself, how do I ensure it's in sRBG?

Like I said, all I can find is the "Adobe RBG" box, which I assumed is sRBG.

In CS3 just go Edit | Assign Profile. Then pick sRGB from the dropdown list. (you may also be able to do this when saving, but I don't know how)

Adobe RGB has a broader colour palette than some applications (such as web browsers or some printers) can handle.

While we at it: what is the difference between "Assign profile" and "convert to profile"?
I always use "Convert". Is that wrong?

BTW, in Photoshop 7 it is in Image->Mode

Thanks!
