Colour saturation loss.

I use Spyder Express to calibrate my monitor and when I print on Epson R1800using Epson software I always get accurate colour saturation. However when I save images for the web I always lose saturation, as viewed on the same monitor. I use PSE9 'save for web' function. This leaves me trying to guess the degree of oversaturation required for web work and although I can check before posting it is obviously a bit hit and miss. There does not seem to be an issue with hue. Color Space used for recording in Raw is Adobe RGB and happens with E30 and E5. JPEGS taken on my Canon SX210 IS also suffer with the same problem. Any ideas?

Thanks

David

Re: Colour saturation loss.

What working colour space are you using? I believe sRGB is normally recommended for the web. Can you try changing to sRGB and doing a Save As to jpeg rather than Save to Web and see if there is any difference?

View them in Firefox and it should show up normally I believe.

Re: Colour saturation loss.

It sounds like a colour space problem. Try converting to sRGB before "Save for web" and see if it makes a difference. Somewhere in the PS versions the save for web dialogue changed so you can tell it to convert the profile before saving. This is nice as it's all in 1 step, but I can't remember which version and have no idea with Elephants, sorry.

Ciao ... John

Re: Colour saturation loss.

Good step forward, but does it look good now in other browsers if you convert to sRGB before "Save for web"? You can't know what browsers other people are going to use.

Ciao ... John

Well I've just tried it with Internet Explorer and the result is the same so I guess it was the colorspace issue. However I will try on my son's setup as he has just about every browser going!

Thanks

David
