Hi all Photoshop users!
I have this issue I have noticed happening to me randomly for the past year and i struggle to eliminate it. Photos that I edit in Photoshop and export have completely different color when i upload them to flickr/messenger/ facebook etc.Howevert they show correctly edited color in the browser of the PC. So the different color only appears in the web applications and browser.
What I do:
1. I do my basic color correction (white balance, shadows highlights) in lightroom,
2. I export the photo into the photoshop
3. I proceed with adjustments with adjustment layers, such as gaussian blur, high pass filter
4. I add some minor adjustments with the curves.
5. FIle > Save as > JPEG > quality 10.
everything looks fine as it is shown in photoshop after my adjustments, but whenever i upload the photo it looks completely different ( what i find amusing is that , even when i open the photo in my computer browser it shows the color accurately, however wheni upload it seems like all my adjustments layers have not been applied)
AS you can see on the screenshot, the small photo is the one uploaded, the one behind shows how it should look like and how it is in photoshop and computer browser.
my only findings are that, if I use the "save as" function instead of export as, then the problem remains. If I continue with the function "export as" then the problems disappear.
This is because Lightroom's default setting for "Edit in Photoshop" is to send the file as ProPhoto RGB. ProPhoto requires a fully color managed environment to display correctly.
Either change Lightroom preferences to sRGB, or convert to sRGB in Photoshop.
Export As converts to sRGB by default.
