    Hi guys,

    I've bought Spyder3 Express to calibrate my laptop monitor but since I did it I can't match colours when I upload my image on EPZ, basically my image looks different on EPZ and different In Photoshop, a lot less saturated.

    I'm shooting in AdobeRGB and also using this colour space for my workflow in Adobe Lightroom2 and Photoshop CS3. And always before I'm going to upload my image I convert my profile to sRGB before I save it for the web as I know that this is the best colour space for the web.

    Never had this problem before calibration just now..., I would be very thankfull if anyone can help and very appreciate any kind of response.

    The look of an image will change depending on what colours/tones are around it. So an image on EPZ will look slightly different to that of the grey background of say lightroom or PS.

    If you download the image after you have uploaded it to here, and then overlay it over your sRGB image in say PS, you can double check to see if there is actually any difference in the images by switching the layer on and off.. When people have mentioned this before, a quick check like this has usually found that the images are the same.

    In CS3 check under the " View " Tab for Proof Setup & Make sure your using the Monitor RGB ( because this is the calibrated profile ).

    Otherwise you could be working to something else completely..!

    Generally there can be slight variations, But not excessively so, But some scenes & situations, As Mark has said, Can make certain colours look a tad out.

    But my guess is, That you need to thoroughly check out your colour management....Wink

    I have my screen calibrated. Ever since I upgraded to Windows 7 all my images look darker and more saturated in Lightroom 4 as well as in CS5, than they do when uploaded to EPZ.

    In Nik Colour and in Paint Shop Pro they look identical to the uploads to EPZ, and other sites.

    Makes no sense.

    First thing to check would be if they're accessing different profiles (can't do that in LR - can do it in CS5 - don't know about the others).

    I don't know if Anne's going to return to this thread but here are a few less cryptic clues:

    There appear to be no profiles embedded in your photos Anne, which makes them more likely to shift in hue across various apps and browsers. Without the profile, programs have to 'guess' at the colour rendition...and they don't all jump the same way.

    Radical differences in appearance between apps would point quite strongly towards them accessing different monitor profiles, or one accessing the monitor profile and the other not. More likely to be the former amongst photo-editing programs. Deleting old monitor profiles and re-calibrating might easily resolve the issue.

    My money would be on LR4 and Photoshop being 'right', and the colour being skewed on the other three, although further details would help confirm or deny that.
