My image in photoshop has thin lines, but when I save it, the jpeg shows the image with very thick dark lines, looking not like the image in photoshop. Why does it do this? How can I stop PS from doing this to my image? I want the image to look as it does in Photoshop when I save it as a Jpeg.
This is in Photoshop CS4
Saved as a Jpeg; the lines are thicker, and now there is little variation in line weight
Does anyone have a solution? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I go to file->save as-> change format to jpeg-> then I hit [save]
As I'm doing this, the [JPEG Options] pop up, and suddenly the lines become thick on the PSD, I hit [Ok] in the jpeg options tab, then the lines go back to normal.
Oops, well I don't know what a color space is then. I went to [assign profile] I don't really understand what the tab says, so I'm not sure if any of this is helpful:
-Don't Color Manage this document
-Working RGB: sRBG IEC61966-2.1
Profile:Adobe RBG (1998)
Just one comment... Your lines in your screen grab are NOT thinner, they are simply a good bit lighter.
You should try to use the proper terminology, because you will end up realizing, when C.Pfaffenbichler helps you get to the bottom of your problem, that you likely are experiencing a gamma/color-management issue causing your pixels to be displayed far more lightly in one case than another.
Besides your color settings in Photoshop, it will also be helpful to know what color profile is associated with your monitor at the operating system level.
P.S., I don't know what result you're going for, but the JPEG with the darker lines looks a lot better on a calibrated display. The screen grab seems too light.
You don't seem to have a white background layer in your Photoshop document. This could make a big difference. When creating line art on a transparent layer you should always have a white background layer at the bottom.
Yeah, nice call, Emil!
Tashawaddell, do you have something different than the default checkerboard grid pattern set for the background? This wouild be changed in Preferences - Transparency & Gamut. Seeing a checkerboard showing through partially transparent layers would be a giveaway for a problem like this.
Apparently tashawaddell has his transparency settings set to None and his Open GL settings are set to Normal or Advanced. Then Photoshop simulates the transparency of the drawing which has a lot of semi-transparent pixels from the anti-aliasing. When the image is flatten this simulation is gone resulting in a unexpected surprise - darker image. And there is no automatic fix for this but to use the color correction tools like levels and curves or even adding an overall transparency of the layer to achieve the same look after adding an opaque layer at the bottom.

Just a wild guess, but "Tasha" might be a girl. It's sometimes difficult but I try not to assume gender as that can seem odd to someone if one gets it wrong...
My apologies to tashawaddell if I my wording was wrong.
Some of the regulars here may have noticed that I'm struggling with my ESL, I often edit my messages a lot because of that but when I'm in a rush I'm at my worst, I'm trying to improve though
