    Hi all. i have a calibrated monitor using my Huey pro once a month. When i open my images (raw) they are sRGB in ACR 7.0 and the colours are ok. When i edit in photoshop CS6 the colours are fine. However when i goto SAVE FOR WEB option the colours SATURATE big time. with embed profile turned on and sRGB selected. the "original" shot on the left is saturated in comparison to the original behind in photoshop...

    SCREENSHOT HERE

    many thanks for any help

    Switch 'Monitor Color' off and change it for 'Internet Standard' or document profile. I know it seems counter-intuitive, but 'Monitor Color' is effectively switching colour management off.

    Under the picture opened in PS it will tell you what format it is in and if your ever in any doubt just go to edit and select convert to profile near the bottom and choose srgb or what ever it needs to be.

    The colour-shift in 'save for web' is pretty harmless, though it is a bit discomforting. It's a local issue - nobody else is going to see it.

    'Monitor Color' is the same as 'Monitor RGB' proofing inside Photoshop - it's showing you how the colour looks without the monitor profile. Strangely, I think it's the default setting in 'save for web', though you'll notice a problem more readily if you have a wide-gamut monitor.

    Hi Paul,

    Glenn is correct in his comments about wide-gamut monitors. As most web viewers generally work in the sRGB colour space, any editing done in a wider colour space will give you a saturated effect. You would need to ensure the monitor is calibrated to sRGB and the correct profile is applied.

    There is a good ebook about this stuff (it is free) which is available here: http://www.nativedigital.com/practical-colour-management-v4-ebook-pdf/
