image quality:browsers

OK, when i uploaded the image below, i noticed a marked difference in color from the original. unlike the one i was talking about the other day, this one was not overly warm to begin with, so i didn’t expect such a change.

anyway, i went ahead and downloaded Firefox (i’ve been using IE). the image looks a whole lot better. any of you who have both on your box might want to compare.

i think it must have been a recent build of IE that made this happen. i’ve never notice this before, and i am pretty aware of colors.

henceforth, i recommend using Firefox when viewing my journal or websites.

PS, Mac users: Safari seems equivalenmt to Firefox.

ok, figured it out, sort of.

google told me to set the color space for sRGB, which it already was. digging a bit deeper, i found that browsers strip a whole lot of information out of images. if i proof for web in photoshop, i see the same crappy image you are getting. for the most part this doesn’t show dramatically, but my really warm night shots are showing as very green. i don’t like this. the second image i posted i pushed the saturation 100% and almost got it to where it should be. sadly, you guys don’t get to see my big toe in all its warm glory. i’m having breakfast with a friend (hi Dave) who is a photoshop wizard. maybe he can help…
