    Default Photos look dull and washed out in Chrome but ok in Explorer

    Can anybody explain why the colours in this photo look washed out when i open in Chrome but seem ok when I view in Explorer.

    When I view side by side on the same screen the colour in chrome look washed out but they are well saturated in Explorer

    I have not noticed it before but recently switched to using Adobe pro as the colour profile ...could this be the reason ?

    Yup, pretty well known that chrome cannot accurately render images with embedded color profiles. Firefox ftw

    I think it got something to do with the ICC color profile...IE uses ICC color profile, not sure about Chrome.
