RAW workflow - saturation problem

Discussion in 'General Technical Discussion' started by JerseyJay, May 15, 2005.

  1. Quick question. Here are the highlights of my workflow:

    1. I shoot in sRGB RAW format.
    2. I bring those files to PS Raw Editor and assign sRGB IEC....
    3. Do tweaking / corrections etc etc
    4. Save To Web

    Outcome pictures are coming out much more saturated compare to what I see in PS. What is the problem ?

    I assume you are using ACR plugin to process NEF files.

    What is your outut colour space settings in ACR plugin then?

    What are your PS settings in Shift-Ctrl-K menu? Do you have custom monitor profile, and how it is set in your system and in Photoshop? How do you save for web?

    BTW, Nikon sRGB targeting has very little in common with sRGB used by Adobe - only gamuts are similar.
     
  3. Yes.

    Space - sRGB IEC61966-1
    Depth - 8bits/channel

    What do you mean how ?. Usually lower the quality to 70-80 and save. Save For Web / Save As produces the same saturated outcome.

  5. I'm using Spyder and that is what I have setup as Color Manag. Profile in Windows.

    test3 - Spyder's profile.

    Test3 is listed in PhotoShop but its not selected as Working Space. I have sRGB selected.

    I guess I'm a bit confused. Thanks for your help.

    Your settings are correct. Monitor colour space should not be used as working space (unless for very spacial purpose).

    Can you p[ost a sample of oversaturated image, and can you e-mail me your monitor profile?
     
  7. I emailed both image and .icm file.

    Thanks
