Chantel Allen Posted May 10, 2016 Share Posted May 10, 2016 My camera is set to AdobeRGB. I got a new monitor and set it to AdobeRGB to match. Then I opened some edited photos in just a basic explorer window and the red is out of control. Yet if I open the same file in Photoshop it looks fine. Do I just ignore explorer because its not a proper viewing tool like Photoshop and trust the Photoshop file is the one my clients are seeing? Or should I be shooting and editing in sRGB? In addition, my sister posted some pics I took on facebook and the colors are dull, but when I looked at them on my old monitor they looked vibrant and great. And when I look on my phone they look fine too. I am worried about what my client sees at this point... I know that AdobeRGB is better for printing, but a large group of my clients mainly view their photos online. And I get my business from what others see online not in print. How do I know we are looking at close to the same thing? And I don't have a tool to calibrate my new monitor. Its straight out of the box but set to AdobeRGB. I guess I am feeling confused and lost and a little frantic as I have sessions piled up and I am afraid to edit - thinking I wont be looking at the true image.
