Trouble with colour profile on new screen and new photoshop cloud update


Recommended Posts

Hi Damien,

i just purchased a new iMac (retina 5k, 27 inch, Late 2015). I have also upgraded my photoshop and Lightroom to the newest Adobe cloud. 

Move calibrated the screen with my color-munki display. 

Tonight I tried to edit a photo like I normally do, I did basic edits in lr, then exported to ps. I saved the image for web and uploaded to my Facebook page and the photo was completely washed out. I realised that lr was in Adobe RGB mode so I rectified this. Edited from scratch again and then I uploaded to Facebook and it's the same issue. I really don't know where I am going wrong here.

any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi Damien,

I just had a look and they match when I check both on my computer. 

The image is a bit fuzzy but colour wise they match. I think my old settings for saving to web no longer apply with the new photoshop cc.

ive also just realised that my calibration is not correct. I lost daylight too quickly today be able to compare my prints to my screen so will look at this all again tomorrow.

Thank you so much for your help.

I know :( Its been a long week!! 

But it is definitely a calibration issue. Ive checked my prints in the daylight today and the printing profile my lab sent me and my screen is significantly warmer. I have re-calibrated 5 times following your instructions to a T and spent half an hour on the phone to x-rite this morning who were not helpful at all other than to tell me the ColorMunki is a great calibrator and I am obviously doing something wrong!! At this point I'm just ready to go back to my old Mac!

Yep absolutely! I will ask some of my photography friends if I could borrow one. I will also Suss out the local labs and see what I can find.

thanks so much for your advice!
