anyone knows how to preserve the color quality when converting .tiff or whatever big formats to jpg?
im quite upset abt the fact that the image looks great in photoshop but when i save it to jpg the color quality just drops terribly.

is there an alternative to saving in another format that can be viewable on the internet without losing the color quality?

The color is very bad.

But your original question was incorrect. SAVE FOR WEB IS NOT SAVING TO JPEG.

File size is much smaller. As a result, quality has tobe sacrificed a bit. Unfortunately, if you done use save for web but rather just save as jpg, the image appearing on the web will not improve much, and your file size will be huge.

Try the instruction in this link and follow the steps re color problems.

Dont slam Photoshop. It's not ideal, perfect, but the best that is available at this time for 90% of us.

good advise, have you also checked your colour spaces? your tif is in sRGB? the jpeg surely is, if the tiff is in prophoto or aRGB a colour shift may result as well.

I do not know your source file, for your TIF could have been in in 16 bit colour. JPEG have been defined only for 8 bit colour. There can be a significant colour change converting from TIF to JPEG even at the the lowest compression and highest quality.
