Alert : Novice Question !

I have calibrated my monitor with photoshop cs6 and was happy with it, but when i share results with other people, they are completely different on there mobile/laptops screens.

Please have a look at sample image to understand my problem.

I just want to give people results as i see it on my screen, but there is huge difference on both the screens. Please tell me how to fix ?

Thanks in advance.

You may be right and it may be a display calibration issue, but my first reaction is that it looks like you are giving away images in AdobeRGB or ProPhotoRGB color space and they are viewed in non-color managed application. Before reviewing your calibration, make sure you save the images in sRGB. Also, when using color spaces, use "convert to" as opposed to "assign profile".

  • \$\begingroup\$ Hi MirekE, Thanks for reply... First of all I would like to mention I have done calibration with help of this video youtube.com/watch?v=DStYd3bYXsY , now coming back to point, Yes i was sharing results in AdobeRGB(1998) format, I have followed your instructions, converting to sRGB profile and saving the image for web, and again viewed on other device, but still both screens have totally different saturation and coloring. Should i undo monitor calibration or something ? \$\endgroup\$ Commented Oct 10, 2016 at 19:11
  • \$\begingroup\$ Perhaps you could post one of your images and somebody here could tell you how it looks on their screen. You could also download some of the testing images and see if they look correct or over/under saturated on your screen. And yes, you could do a new calibration or use the default profile... northlight-images.co.uk/downloadable_1/DL_page.html \$\endgroup\$
