Hi Internet (photography bloggers particularly),

I really need your help. About half the time I take a photograph, photoshop it, then post it to the web, the detail and colors are totally washed out.  It’s as if I didn’t photoshop it at all.

I already tried: assigning the sRGB color profile. I already tried save for web on high quality settings. What Am I Missing?!

Oh, I will add that the color change is most prominent when I use photomatix to make an HDR photo.  The HDR qualities are completely lost when I open the photograph in firefox.  I use a mac, and I’m using the trial version of photoshop (I know, don’t judge). I shoot with a Canon Rebel xsi.

Can someone please tell me what I’m missing? I’d be so very grateful. Until then I’m too embarrassed to put up any of my pictures because let’s face it without photoshop they’re pretty crappy.

Ever yours,

T

Child at the Lake

September 17, 2008

This has a delightful old feeling to it. The kid’s outfit kind of tricks me into thinking its one of those full body suits of the early 20th century. All he needs is an adorable little sailor hat.  Speaking of which, how do you feel about hat girl in the right corner? Necessary or distracting?

P.S. (I sat up straight and this photo looked so washed out, but when I sat back in my chair and slouched it looked the way I meant it to–darker, more shadows). So the lesson today is, utilize bad posture while viewing these photos)
