Does Your Image Change Color When It’s Uploaded to the Web?

  1. Thanks! My colors always turn out flatter and I’ve just given up! 🙂

      You’re welcome!! I know it’s frustrating. I have some photos that I uploaded to my website with the same problem. Now I’m going back in and fixing those as well!! 🙂

  2. Thanks – that suddenly started happening to me too – weird – but this seemed to sort it 🙂

    What about images you are uploading to print? I am uploading images from lightroom to shutterfly, snapfish, etc. and the colors are alllll wrong!

  13. Daniel says:

    wow! Thank you so much for this tip. I was exporting from lightroom and couldn’t get my head around why the photos I posted to instagram were changing colour from blue to kind of purple! Thanks again

  16. Tom Gander says:

    Thank you! Just notice this happening as I post more to Twitter and anything normally viewed on a phone but also to web sites that normally cause me no problems. So glad it is not my fault per se!

  17. Alix says:

    Oh my goodness, thank you SO much for this. After updating and uploading my company logo the colours on my website were all miss-matched. I doubt I would have worked out how to fix it without your help. SO GRATEFUL!!!

    OMG!!! I don’t know how to thank you!!!
    I had this problem for since like a year ago and I just gave up until I saw this explanation
    Thank you a lot!!!

    So strange, I’ve been doing web for YEARS but recently had this happen from a batch of photos a client sent me, it looked ok on my desktop until upload then the color (mostly reds) got washed out. This solved it. Thanks so much.

    You are a life saver!! I thought I was going crazy…thought it was my computer…my tablet…my phone… I didn’t know what to do. When I downloaded photos to sites like Shutterfly the color changed dramatically… I followed your steps and have been testing different photos and it has worked!! Thanks for your perseverance!!!

  21. sarah walsh says:

    thanks so much! it worked!!!!

  22. Even 6 years later this post is awesome!! It wasn’t happening to all my pics, but I couldn’t figure why it did for a couple. Looks like that change took care of the problem. Onward with the project! haha Thanks so much!

  23. Lena says:

    Thank you so much for this! It was driving me crazy. I couldn’t figure it out! My pictures looked nice coming from my camera but turned an awful muted color when I uploaded them.

  24. Lyn says:

    Thank you so much for this post! I have been going crazy trying to figure out a solution and this was it!!!

    Wondering if you’ve had to update the way that you save since you posted this. I’m trying to post to Pinterest and I’m experiencing the same issue that you described, but my settings already look to match what you recommended. I had posted there fine a few weeks ago, but now my colors change with each image.
