Web browsers don't care about monitor profiles, ie they can't use them properly.
Screenshot of Firefox 3 with colour management enabled. Files in camera profile, converted to AdobeRGB, sRGB, ProPhotoRGB, ECI-RGB V2
Seems that at least Firefox cares about the monitor profile...
Still hoping for an answer!
Graham... I played around with the "save for web" tool (for the first time...)
what is wrong here:
... is that "preview" is set to Monitor Color". You have to set to "Document Profile".
see here (note: the screenshots are converted to sRGB)...
preview set "monitor color" / convert to sRGB: no
the resulting JPG (below) is too bright and undersaturated here ->
preview set "monitor color" / convert to sRGB: yes
the resulting JPG is too bright and totally oversaturated ->
preview set to "document color" / (same results with or without "convert to sRGB" activated)
the resulting JPG matches the source ->
But that does not explain why your "safe as JPG"-image is still off ("jack flesher", "opgr" and me are obviously seeing the same).
Maybe you want to post screenshots of...
- your colour settings (advanced)
- your "convert to profile" setting (advanced)
- your proof settings
