After some searching around I found the following information that a user posted after being frustrated that Capture One only supports ICC profiles but X-Rite creates DNG profiles: From robertharringtonstudios.wordpress.com: I discovered that if you are using Capture One, all you need to do is photograph the Munsell Color Target and use the Auto Color ...

If you set exposure manually with a gray card, set a custom white balance and use a color checker passport to calibrate the camera you will capture the best colors your camera is capable of producing. Cameras are not colormetric devices. They do not accurately record colors. Adobe offers a free dng profile editor that you can download. This allows you to ...

When photographing still life with multiple light sources, reflectors and flags, I find that I if I happen to be using the camera’s on board spot metering, it rarely provides the correct exposure to bring out the colours that I consider to be true. I find, in general, the in-camera auto WB brings about the same results as a grey card and minor adjustments ...

To get colors right you need to color calibrate everything. You need to calibrate the camera with something like a color checker passport (for every lighting setup). You need your editing area to mostly color neutral (something colorful in your field of view while editing will throw your color perception off). You have to calibrate your screen with proper ...

Depending upon the browser you're using, you may not be comparing apples-to-apples (or jpegs-to-jpegs in this case). Facebook added the .webp compression for uploaded photos a while back and displays them in that format within browsers that support WebP. Details on the WebP format are available at: http://www.sitepoint.com/webp-image-format/ A good ...

The reason you may see the same image differently in Lightroom, Photoshop, and a Web browser may lie in several factors: Whether the image is converted to sRGB or not The browser used, not all browsers are color managed Display calibration and profiling, which is a ...

What I'm wondering is, why do my pictures not look the same across the board?! I'm sure I will have an experience that one time I upload a picture to Facebook or somewhere online and the picture not coming looking good. It is not possible to tell from a screenshot what Facebook did to your picture, but I would not be surprised if it converted it ...

The images look different because of different color spaces. To fix it stop using ProPhoto RGB color space and instead use sRGB to produce consistent results for web. Secondarily, determine if your browser is capable of managing color spaces and find out what it is using. Also, ensure your monitor is properly calibrated using a hardware solution.

Facebook applies a pretty aggressive compression and resize to the uploaded images to save space and bandwidth. This should not change colors (it actually does, but adding artifacts, not changing tones), unless the source image has an "unsupported" color profile for the compression library. I experienced some color issues while compressing JPEGs made with ...

I'll give you a little description of both, ColorSync is Apple Inc's color management API for the Mac OS and Mac OS X. The ColorSync selection enables driver-based color management. Selecting ColorSync tells the printer driver to specify one of its device profiles as the destination color space. Vendor Matching is the programs color management. The ...

There is one piece of software that I know of that can handle it: BetterJPEG. I have downloaded the latest trial, and, as it says on its web page can do lossless full-image color and brightness correction. The tools are crude compared to what is available in Photoshop, just a couple color sliders (red/cyan and blue/yellow) and a brightness slider. And ...
