General Discussion / Re: Getting colors right when uploading images
« Last post by marakinta on March 26, 2017, 03:07:05 PM »
Newbie here.  I realize this is an older post, but thought I would attempt to help.

1) If you haven't already done so, use the monitor calibration function in Photoshop. This can radically change the way your colors appear.

2) Some colors just don't translate well across different viewing formats, and your original image is being manipulated in multiple ways. Are you using any kind of compression when saving your image file? Try saving as different types to see which one looks best.


I've given up on the colors of images I post to the "share your art from tutorials"  section. I photo graph a completed drawing (colored pencils, at this point), adjust it in Photo Shop if necessary, resize it so the longest dimension  is 800 pixels, but the colors on the VirtualInstructor site are nowhere near what they are in my photographed (and adjusted) upload. Sometimes I can get in the ball park of color accuracy, after several guesswork readjustments in Photo Shop. With a couple of images, I've never been able to get the uploaded image to reproduce the  colors of the adjusted photograph of my work.

I can post the identical adjusted photo to my galleries in DPreview.com, and they look fine - perhaps a hairline off, but almost identical to what I see in Photo Shop, and what existed in my finished "work".

Is there any "fix" for this?

A decent start; fur is infuriatingly hard to get right.
Thank you Alan
