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


#1
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.

I find safari very good. So u may wan to ask your viewers to use safari for more accurate results.
