[thelist] Photoshop > Colour washout on 'save for web'

Hi Paul,

My bets are in two different possibilities… Either you are:

    * Using proof colours in the view menu: in that case, while you’re
      editing, it will alter the image accordingly to what you’ve set up
      in proof setup, in the same menu… but, the final output can be
      quite different…
    * Or, in your save for web dialog you have set an option in that
      little menu with an arrow pointing to the right, just on the left
      of the save button… I always use Uncompensated Color to see
      exactly what I will get in a browser.

And don’t forget to set your Color settings to “Web graphics defaults”…

Hope that helps,

Roberto Gorjão


>Colours are fine in Photoshop UNTIL I go to 'save for web' or 'save as'. Then the colour appears washed out and altered slightly. No. it's not a JPEG setting as I've tried all file sizes and modes...
>I've always found that PS would display colors in save as.. the same as when you're editing...
