Hi all - I'm new to Photoshop, Garage Glamour (1st post here) and for that matter posting pictures on the net. Here's the problem...

I'm in Photoshop CS (working space Adobe 1998, mode RGB) and the picture looks fine. I do a "save for web" to reduce size and the picture's colors aren't even close to the original.

I understand that Adobe 1998 is a much wider color space but shouldn't the basic colors be the same? BTW I'm saving at 72ppi and 500 pixels on the wide side.

Thanks.

Save for web is crap....lol It seems to pixelize the image way too much! I would do the normal save and save your image no lower than 8 for your size. You will see much improvement!

On the "Save for Web" dialog there is a fly-out just above the Save button. Make sure "Use Document Color Profile" is checked. It's been good for me..

The reason is because you are using the AdobeRGB color space. Before you are ready to save for the web, Convert to sRGB, then do "save for web". Read these threads for more detail. http://www.garageglamour.com/ubbthre...mp;o=&vc=1

He said he was using the AdobeRGB color space. The image has to be converted to the sRGB color space 1st before saving for web (or JPG as you like to do). You know that....

Now you see why I try to be as specific as possible. THis way if anyone does search the archives, they will see lots of useful information there. Heck, just browse the tech forum is enough. Its a popular question and an often misunderstood one.

 
 
Duh.......lol

Thanks everyone, for the help. After saving as sRGB and using the document's color space when saving for web, there was an improvement but I'm still losing the warm colors. Should I be using sRGB in the first place in Photoshop instead of Adobe 1998? Here's how the final is coming out.

I'm guessing more than a few photographers are like me when it comes to reading about photography. I buy and/or read most of the U.S. magazines that cover photography--e.g., popular photography, shutterbug, photo pro, and more--as well as books and internet sites devoted to the art.

but i began to realize that, apart from information about new products and technologies, i was often reading about stuff i already knew. in fact, when these magazines and other media included photoshop-related articles, I found i was getting the most out of whatever it was i was reading.

so i started spending much more of my reading (learning) time with books and magazines and internet sites devoted to photoshop. after all, most photographers have now embraced digital photography on some level and many, like myself, now find that almost all of their photo work is performed digitally. this means learning a whole bunch of new stuff about photographic post-production. and let's face it, photoshop is not something you become competent with after a few uses.

so now i spend about 70% of my time learning about photoshop, it's uses and capabilities (and how to use them). in my opinion, spending the time i now spend improving my photoshop skills has not only changed the way i capture images, but--IMHO--improved it.
