View Full Version : Image appears dull in Firefox, Exlporer but perfect in Safari??!! Any help is appreci
07-04-2007, 09:34 AM
I recently moved to a Macbook Pro from a Windows PC. I love it but the problem I'm seeing is that the images on my pblog load up with very dull colors and less contrast on Firefox and Explorer but are perfect on Safari. To make sure, i checked all three browsers on three different PCs/Macs and it confirms what I thought.
Here is a comparison:
I'm using PP 1.5 and use Photoshop CS2 to make them webready - 72dpi; 750 pixel wide, Bicubic Sharper
Anyone have any ideas how and why this is happening? Any ideas? Do let me know - please.

Safari supports color profiles, all other browsers don't.
Before uploading your image, convert it to sRGB.
Or better yet, use Image Ready to export your final JPG image.
You can have Image Ready strip out all extra information except EXIF data.

Hi Jay - thanks for your response.
I tried but to no avail. Do you mean I just go into CS2 and go Edit > Convert to Profile and then choose sRGB IEC... and then save as..? Image Ready is way too complicated..
Do let me know when you get a chance.

Yes, "Edit > Convert to Profile and then choose sRGB" is exactly what I was referring to.
Just out of curiosity, does the "Save for Web" option produce an image that looks the same in each browser?

No luck, I'm afraid - I've been going insane trying to remedy this. It just does not appear the way it should or as it does in Safari - am i expecting too much? Could it be one of the other settings in the Convert to dialog box.
And no, the Save for Web doesn't fare any better either...
I don't think this was the case previously when I was using Windows. You think it has something to do with that?
Jay - by the way, I love the look and feel of your blog and your images are outstanding! Love the desaturated execution...

This was covered here before if my memory serves me correctly. I forgot what the problem ended out being though.
If i can find the post I'll post a link.

Found it but it looks like Jay's solution is the correct one,
I experienced this problem too. So it has to do with color profiles etc.
Can this be done in Photoshop Elements 5 ?

I have also been plagued by this problem. I find that you do need to convert the profile, but going to srgb doesn't seem to work. I use Monitor RGB and that seems to produce pretty uniform results amung browsers/platforms. If you don't have Monitor RGB mess around with different profiles, one will probably work. I don't know much about color profiles but this works for me.
