When using PS CS "save for web" function, my images always lose a considerable amount of color punch. What starts as a vibrant clear image ends up muddy.

F'rinstance, this image:

lost "warmth" and clarity when saved for web.

I've never had this issue with other graphics programs. Is there a CS setting that will give me better web versions of my images?

Before doing the Save for Web, use Mode | Convert to Profile and choose the sRGB setting. That will then make the saved photo look the same as the one you are looking at in photoshop. Basically you are working in some other color space inside of PS other than sRGB and that is the problem. Images on the web are shown in sRGB. Try it, you'll see an amazing difference.

Cheers,

Or Ed you could just use ImageReady, you already have it in Photoshop just hit the button at the bottom of your tools palette, hover your mouse pointer over it. The go to Imageready is on the right side.

Adjust your image in ImageReady and and save your optimized then use that.

BTW you can set your preference to how you want your pics "optimized"

Email me if you have any further problems.

Thrashell optimized in ImageReady...

Dittos to a previous poster. Check if the color space of the image is converted to sRGB. 'Save for web' strips quite a bit of embedded info. Probably, it strips the embedded color profile as well.
