    Sometimes you wonder why the colours of the image posted does not look exactly the same as what you have in Photoshop even you have colour profile set to sRGB. :? Quite often, you will also see comments saying colours is flat and/or overexposed, but it looks fine on your photoshop. The reason could be due to your browsers (Thanks Lester for reminding me and request that I put this up for better viewing pleasure of all).

    If you are using Windows, IE (Internet Explorer) comes with your OS, but IE has certain limitations, e.g. it is not colour managed and will not use the colour profile that you have set for your monitor. Here is an article on this particular topics:

    I will recommend those who are on Windows OS to download a free copy of Firefox (current version is 3.5.1) from http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/personal.html, it is a better browser and supposedly the fastest browser in the market. There are also a number of plug-ins and add-ons that make this better than IE. Of course if you are on Mac and use safari as your browser, it always has colour management. :kudos thumbsup:

    Just to add,
    color management in FireFox 3 was turned off by default, you need to turn it on if you want FF to color manage.


    1. at the address bar type
    2. click

    3. Type
    in the filter field.
    4. double click on

    and you will see it change to

    5. Exit and restart FireFox and it is now color manage.

    Hi Hwee Boon,

    I think the newer version of Firefox has that turn on as default.

    SC,

    Thanks for sharing it with the forum so promptly.
    Very well explained. :kudos thumbsup:

    May I add another point:
    If you shoot in Adobe RGB, keep your originals in Adobe RGB, and convert the downsized image to sRGB before
    posting on web for better color consistency.

    :cheers:
    Les

    A useful web tutorial to determine if your browser is colour managed,

    WEB BROWSER COLOR MANAGEMENT TUTORIAL

    A lot to read, or you can just hover over the images to see the difference, and read the description for each image of tagged & untagged pictures.
