very likely because you have taken your pictures in adobe RGB colour space.EiRiK said:how come when i post pix online, they look so dull?
when i open in PS or windows the colours look much richer... :dunno:
will the reverse(online become rich colour and windows/PS become dull) be true if i convert to sRGB?rEveRie said:very likely because you have taken your pictures in adobe RGB colour space.
simply change it to sRGB. you can convert that in PS.
agreed. only shops with softwares that reads adobe RGB profile will be able to reproduce the larger colour gamut in prints.jOhO said:hmm.. if u're using adobe RGB and it only displays dull colours online, must be u're using a viewer on ur pc that can read adobe RGB profile. otherwise it would look dull on ur pc also with something like windows picture viewer, for example.
when sending for printing, check with the shop to see if they support adobe RGB. if they do, then u can send the files that way, if not it's always safer to convert to sRGB.
erm provided you're satisfied that is the way your colour is going to be.EiRiK said:hhmm... like that i should just shoot in sRGB to save 1 step(conversion)....
oh sorry i never explain properly.EiRiK said:sorry i am very slow at this.
sRGB gives better colours when displayed online, but aRGB has larger colour gamut...:dunno:
thanks for being patient with me guys
thanks bro :thumbsup: have a much better idea nowrEveRie said:oh sorry i never explain properly.
the main concept is aRGB has larger colour gamut, however, most softwares including I.E cannot display the full gamut since it is not a graphic dedicated software. on the other hand, the manufacturer software, adobe photoshop and other dedicated softwares would be capable to, but still restricted by the monitor resolution.
despite the fact that adobe RGB has larger colour gamut, it becomes duller if the program such as IE is not capable of displaying all of the colours. (think neither here nor there) in contrary, sRGB is like taking a piece out of the big chunk of colours (stronger in red or green) that IE can display, thus it will appear better.
hmmz.. i hope that explains better?
no worries.EiRiK said:thanks bro :thumbsup: have a much better idea now
1 more q :sweat: :
does it make a diff whether i send a pix saved as sRGB or aRGB for printing?
