I notice a definite color shift toward the cool end of the spectrum when I "Save for the Web" in PS CS. Does anyone have any tips for preventng this?

What color mode is your picture in? If it is in anything but SRGB, you must assign the SRGB mode to the photo before converting to web and it will look proper.

Mode was Adobe RGB/8, changed profile to sRGB as you suggested and nailed it.

Thanks, Mike

"Web safe" colors are a limited subset of the full RBG array. I don't know jack about CS, but I would avoid over simplifications like "save for the web."

Often times you don't need to change the color profile to sRGB from Adobe RGB. Just go to Save for Web and be sure the ICC box is checked. Here is an example:



The left shot is as it looks in PS. The middle shot is after Save for Web, but with the ICC box checked. The right is after Save for Web but with the ICC Box NOT checked. You might try this and see if it works for you because it can save you the step of changing the color profile in PS. Just leave it always checked to avoid the problem in the future.

Cheers,
rfs

When doing a "Save As" make sure you check the box to save the ICC profile with it. That should clear things up.

I blamed a monitor for months on the problem a new monitor only helped a little .

Try this:

Go into your display properties
Click the Settings Tab
Click the Advanced button
Click the Color Management tab

Make sure sRGB is the associated color profile.

I went through the same exact problem a few months ago where Photoshop outright ignored my color space when saving a jpg and this nailed it.
