This has me a little confuzzled..
I always work in adobe rgb in Photoshop and save my files as such. But when I save jpegs for showing others I convert to srgb to avoid the image looking flat. That has worked for me in the past from what I remember, but now I get crazy opposite results. Instead, these images get a contrast and saturation boost when I save them as srgb - as soon as I load them back into Photoshop or any other app they show as over-saturated.
However, if I 'save for web' they look like they're supposed to.
Another thing that I don't understand is that when I convert to srgb I get a little star * next to the file name and bit depth in the window, but when I import those srgb images the star isn't there any longer.. I seem to remember that it used to be, but maybe I was wrong?
In the process of saving jpegs I also reduce to 8 bits, but I don't think that's causing any issues. I use CS2
I have a feeling it's due to my changing of monitor profile, but I thought all pictures were displayed properly in Photoshop using the monitor profile?
What do I need to do to have pictures display properly as jpegs? And what is going on here?
