Photoshop 7.0 - Problem Retaining Original Color Space After Export

I just registered for this forum & would appreciate your input.
I convert Canon RAW files to jpgs & always embed the sRGB color profile & color space in the converted files.. Once I open & edit one of these files in Photoshop 7.0 & save it, the color space is changed to Abobe RGB. I have tried many changes via Edit > Color Settings, but still the same results. I thought that the settings preset "Web Graphics sRGB Color Space" would do the trick - but it doesn't.
If I go to Image > Mode > Convert to Profile & select sRGB for both source space and destination space for an opened jpg file, the sRGB color space is embedded in the saved file - even after reopening in PS, editing, and re-saving. Must I do this for each jpg I edit?
Please educate me how to set PS so all exported files either retain the sRGB color space or have PS embed the sRGB color space upon export.
Thank you.

This is of course, an issue of permissions so there may be no solution.
Absolutely not. Don't jump to false premature conclusions. As Noel said, it solely depends on detecting a previous install/ verifying the install media. Since the latter is out of the question, the first would be way to go, the point being that it merely looks for the respective registry keys in HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Adobe. Lucky for you, back then nobody cared to encrypt such stuff so it could be hacked in manually. Off hand I'm just not aware of the specific structure for the keys, though, but a little digging might turn up that info. In fact it would be almost identical to the ones for PS 7, which might already linger there just lacking the proper vlaues...

  • Color change after exporting from Lightroom

    I noticed a drastic color change after exporting a file from Lightroom to a JPEG file today. I have been using Lightroom for a while, and it never happened before. I am assuming that I changed the setting somehow and I cannot find how to fix it.
    Here is the original.
    After exporting to a JPEG. The color is so drastically different. I tried both sRGB and AdobeRGB and they turn out to have the same problem.
    It is not as clear as JPEG files, but edited files with Photoshop CS5 also looks slightly different viewed on Lightroom.
    I would appreciate it if anyone could help me.  Thank you so much for your help!

    Thanks everyone for looking into my problem!

    I somehow can't find XMP sidecar files in my folders.... So instead, I exported the JPEG file to the 2nd JPEG file, hoping you can compare those two JPEG files.
    The colors get lighter and lighter every time I export the files. I uploaded those files (RAW, 1st JPEG, 2nd JPEG) on line. I also changed the file samples from the original post because I can't add watermarks.
    I checked my flles, but there is no preset applied to the JPEGs.
    I am thinking of unistallng Lightroom and reinstalling it and see what happens.

  • Open in external editor -- original color space workaround

    I was frustrated--like other's whose posts I've read--by the fact that when opening files (tiff, jpeg, psd) in an external editor they are all converted to the Adobe 1998 rgb space.
    I am working around this comfortably and by using some Automator actions that I got from Ben Long's Complete Digital Photography site:
    In my Pictures folder I have an Auto Processing subfolder with Photoshop droplets and lots of 'hot folders' tied to Applescript folder actions. I made two new folders: OPEN in Photoshop & IMPORT to Aperture
    The Open in Photoshop folder has attached from Automator the following actions from the default Finder suite: Open Finder Items and Move to Trash.
    The Open action is self explanitory, the next step of moving the recently opened file to the trash guarantees that I can't save to the source file. This forces Photoshop to do a Save As even if I hit command + S. The Save As prompts me for a location and I choose the Import to Aperture folder.
    The IMPORT to Aperture folder has attached the Import Photos action from Ben Long's Aperture suite. By selecting the Delete the Source Images After Importing Them option and the Show Action When Run option I get a prompt asking what project to add the new files to and the old files are deleted from my hot folder after the import.
    This isn't a perfect round trip solution because I still end up with two copies of the image in Aperture--even if I was just opening the source image to tweak an adjustment layer. I might create an Applescript that would prompt the user and delete the precvious copy of the image if desired.
    Like many of you I was feeling blue yesterday about rumors of changes in the Aperture team at Adobe. Blue not because I beleive Aperture's going away, instead because I expect if this rumor is true that we will see some delays in the short term while the new team gets up to speed.
    While I am waiting for that to happen I intend to use this discussion site to find creative workarounds for Aperture's current limitations and share them as widely as possible. Many of you are already doing the same.

    Yes you could do that.
    I was part of the alpha/beta test group for Adobe CS2. Most of my work was with scripting and automation, especially for Bridge. I did have a very good dialog with Bruce Fraser, Seth Resnick and other testers whose opinions are as good as fact in my book.
    The consensus was that most digital cameras--certainly the pro models--had a color gamut substantially larger than Adobe RGB (1998). Note that ACR give the option of developing an image into sRGB, Adobe RGB, Color Match RGB, or Pro Photo RGB; 8-bit or 16-bit. That's the way I want it in Aperture.
    If you use the perceptial rendering intent (this is almost certainly what Aperture is using as its undisclosed default setting) then you will compress the wider gamut of the camera into the smaller Adobe RGB (1998) gamut. If in Photoshop you used the Convert to profile command and choose the perceptial rendering you would probably expand the color gamut back out a little bit. Why bother? Aperture really should have options for open in external editor like the very good export version settings.
    I have in my Aperture library a bunch of 16-bit grayscale scans and some CYMK files that seem to be working fine with the workflow above and Automator actions. (Lab files won't import.) I wouldn't want to go through the convert to Adobe RGB (1998) and reconvert to proper space with these files. My workflow is letting my store these files in Aperture and still edit in native color spaces in Photoshop with minimal effort for a round trip. I like it.
    P.S. I said in my original post that it would be easy to write an Applscript to delete the orignial file in Aperture when reimporting a slightly modified Photoshop version. It may be possible but its not easy in the current version which only has a bare skeleton of Applescript functionality.

  • Color space when exporting from RAW

    I am a new user of Lightroom and I find color spaces topic a bit confusing so far. My main question is: when exporting a photo, does Lightroom convert to a profile or assign a profile? Because there is no way to choose. I tried to export a photo with 3 different color spaces (sRGB, AdobeRGB and ICC profile from laboratory where I print my photos). After exporting them to JPEG it turned out that all of them look differently on my monitor - does it mean that Lightroom assigns a profile? If it was converting, shouldn't they have the same colours? What is more, after printing them in laboratory, results were completely different than I expected - the photo which had closest colours to what I saw in Lightroom was that in sRGB, but that with ICC of Lab was very different (much colder colours).
    Where is the problem, or what aspect do I seem to misunderstand? Do I have wrong settings, should I use DNG to work with photos, should I export to TIFF, or I just have too weak monitor or wrongly calibrated one? Should I calibrate when viewing a picture in Lightroom or with the use of a photo exported to the ICC profile of Lab?
    I would like to have a little bit of control over what I'm working on, depending on whether I want to publish it on a website or print. I know that my monitor can be a problem (I have an iiyama with IPS), but surely there has to be any way to make results of my work a bit closer to my expectations.
    Just for information, my workflow doesn't require Photoshop, as I rather prefer to use only tools from Lightroom. I hope that my problem doesn't require the use of Photoshop.
    I will be really greateful for your help - the general knowledge about colour spaces seems to be unsufficient when it comes to the usage of applications such as Lightroom.
    Many thanks,

    Thank you for you helpful replies. Now I know a little bit more about it. But still, this is not completely clear to me.
    My main question is: when exporting a photo, does Lightroom convert to a profile or assign a profile?
    What you mean by both? How should I interpret it? I cannot choose "convert" or "assign", so how they both work together? What does it mean for me wanting to process photo and print in Lab?
    I can only add, that those 3 photos which I exported to JPEG with 3 different colour spaces, they look different when viewing outside of Lightroom, ie. IrfanView. But when importing those JPEGs into Lightroom, differences are extremly slight. Is that because Lightroom operates in ProPhoto, which covers all colour spaces which I used, and other programs work in sRGB and those photos differently?
    And the last question for now: will the hardware calibrator help in monitor which is, let's say, medium cost and medium quality? I mainly use it for preparing photos to put them on the website gallery, but would be nice if I could print better ones with a bit of certainty about what I will get from Lab.
    Many thanks!!
    When you export a photo from LR, it converts to the colour space you select (e.g. sRGB) and embeds the appropriate profile in the exported file. 
    If your monitor were calibrated and profiled, and you view with a colour-managed viewer then images should look pretty much identical no matter which colour space you export in.  (W7 Photo viewer is colour managed, the XP equivalent isn't, Mac s/w generally is.  IE and Chrome aren't properly colour managed, Firefox is for all images, Safari is for images with embedded profiles.  Other viewers vary.)  With colour-managed viewers, the only difference should be with very highly saturated colours outside sRGB colour space (and then only if your monitor can display those colours). 
    LR is colour managed.  If the monitor isn't calibrated/profiled then I think LR assumes the monitor has a colour space equivalent to sRGB (which is generally roughly right but won't be accurate).  Internally LR uses ProPhoto RGB colour space in develop module, but uses Adobe RGB in Library, and previews are stored in Adobe RGB.  However, the colour space LR uses won't explain why other viewers show things differently.  It's simply that LR is colour managed (which means it converts to/from the image colour space), and I guess the other viewers you're using aren't; they just throw RGB data at the screen without converting. 
    Is it worth calibrating and profiling your monitor?  Quite possibly.  Does the colour and brightness vary with viewing angle as you move your head from side to side?  If so, it may be TN technology, and perhaps not worth profiling.  If it looks reasonably stable with different viewing angle then probably yes. 

  • Wrong color profile after export - what am I doing wrong?

    I'm a beginner in color management and color profiles and I have a problem with my exported files from AE CS6 (german version):
    In my project settings I've set the working space to "adobe RGB (1998)" which is the same like my footage (JPEG Image-Sequence).
    In my Output Module Settings I've set it also to the working space "adobe RGB (1998)".
    I' ve tried to export it as h.246 and AVI.
    And now the Problem: the exported clips are too bright and washed out. First I thought it is a problem with the Windows Media Player, but I imported the clips again to after effects and the showed Profile is now "HDTV (Rec. 709) Y'CbCr". This is the case with the h.246-clips. The AVI-Clips showed the profile "sRGB IEC61..." So the settings from the Output Module didn't seem to work.
    The washed-out-effect disappeared after I set everything to HDTV, but I don't think this is the right way to go..
    Thank you for any help

    Simple, really: You are using a) a wrong color space b) your system is not calibrated, but you have color management enabled and c) use formats that don't support color management. This is simply wrong from stem to stern, especially with regards to b) and c). Why would you even use Adobe RGB when video works on Rec 709 or even more generic sRGB? I think you do not even understand the point of CM on a fundamental level. you don't dictate the color space by your source files, you simply import them into your working color space - regardless of whatever it is set to. The color metrics engine will apply any corrections necessary based on the associated/ embedded profiles, which ultimately is the whole point. Conversely, enabling CM for output will require a format that actually uses those corrections, which comes down to only a handful. so to cut a long story short: Unless you are willing and technically able to establish a proper CM workflow simply leave it off and just use the default sRGB that AE ever has used.

  • Color different after export

    OK image looks great in LR...RAW shot with 5D and edited in LR. Export to desktop,flickr,for email, ANYWHERE I export as jpeg...the color changes. Skin is orangy and yellowie and not pretty.
    Here is a link to the example.

    First, make absolutely sure you are exporting to sRGB jpeg. If you are exporting to other color spaces and you are not using color managed apps to watch the files (e.g. Firefox 2.0 is not color managed), you will see a color shift. If you are already doing that, Lee is probably right. Vert likely a bad profile. Even if it works in Aperture and other apps. This can happen because Lightroom uses the perceptual rendering intent, while most apps use the relative colorimetric intent. The difference should be almost inperceptible (pun intented), but some canned profiles and profiles generated by certain calibrators have a bad perceptual intent embedded. Also, if you are using dual monitors, make sure that they are the same or that you know what you are doing. Lightroom will usually pick up the profile from the main monitor. But when you then drag the window to another it often does not pick up on the change.

  • Why is there extra white space after exporting to JPEG?

    After exporting an *.ai file to jpeg using  150 ppi and 5 for compression, I have extra white space below the artwork. This has happened in two files after exporting.

    What about the Artboard, is that aligned to the Pixel Grid (it is if the size is a whole number of points/pixels and one corner is at X=Y=0 or another set of integer values, otherwise not)?
    Edit: Cross posting.
    Congratulations, some things are difficult to spot (and guess for others); your finding the solution is the best happy ending.

  • Red color clips after export to H.264

    Dear friends,
    I am very new to try use Color. I sent seq. from FCP to Color, changed some clips use Color FX, and than back to FCP.
    After export seq. from FCP to H.264 for web, some of the clips appeared red.
    Thanks for any answer.

    Do you mean red render bars or the clips are actually Red? With Color you should avoid H.264 until after any rendering. ProRes or Uncompressed are the best codecs to bounce between Color and FCP.

  • Colors change after exporting from 5.2 upgrade

    I did not have this problem prior to upgrading to Lightroom 5.2
    I import .jpg photos into lightroom, adjust brighness and colors, export photos. All of the exported photos have odd colors. Blue skies are too purple. Warm woods are shifted greenish. The new photos are unusable because the colors are so distorted. It looks like the hue is shifted but I cannot be sure.


  • Color quality after exporting video

    I am trying to make a video with all of my photos, and after I export the video, the quality of the images totally gets ruined. The color is not as vibrant and the images are not as clear, I am using the highest mode to export, so I was wondering if there is anything that I can do to improve the quality!

    I figured it out. I had to reduce the size of the exported file. It looks a lot better now.

  • Color fades after export

    So I've tried a handful of file formats but no matter the type it seems that every export flattens the color (in comparison to what I have on my FCP canvas window)
    Any thoughts to why this would be? (I previewed the exported files on multiple computers and monitors too...)

    I gets darker but I do not know how it will affect further use of the QuickTime movie in Compressor or DVD Studio Pro. Just try you can always revert back to allow dithering. I have used when I was working with SD and had no issues.

  • Problem with depositioned picture boxes after export or printing

    I have created a template with 20 boxes (4x5) defined as placeholders for pictures. The alignment and margins between the boxes are set to be exactly equal (it's one millimetre actually). On the screen of my MBP everything looks good. But when I print or export the file the margins start to vary. What is to be done? I have tried grouping, but it doesn't help.
    Thanks for your support!

    Changing the unit is not sufficient, it would be useful to check if the picts are really given the same coordinates.
    Working with mm may give differences in these coordinates.
    You may compress a sample document as a zip archive, attach this one to a mail and send them to my mailbox.

  • Color problem with ProPhoto RGB color space

    Hi, everyone,
    I have wery special problem I think. I use MacBook pro 15" with retina display, adobe Photoshop CC and when I export RAW (from Nikon D7000) from Lightroom 5 to Photoshop with settings: 16 bit TIF, color space: ProPhoto RGB I have a problem with displaying the correct colors. As you can see in this picture:
    My problem are some "green" artefacts in absolutely black and white picture. I tried myself to solve this problem and found the following facts: when I convert picture into Adobe RGB or sRGB color space is everything OK - without green artefacts.
    But here is one important fact: I have calibrated monitor by datacolor spyder4elite and problem with ProPhoto RGB incorrect color displaying is only when the color calibration configuration is loaded. When I change my display calibration to standard apple color LCD profile than is everything OK.
    But using uncalibrated monitor and also Adobe RGB color space are no right solutions for me.
    My question is why I have problem with displaying ProPhoto RGB color space in photoshop under calibrated monitor profile and can anybody help me please?
    Thanks for answers.

    That's a classic example of the basic problem with 16 bit color. There is no solution that I know of.

  • Photoshop Elements 12 does not support the color space

    I recently installed Photoshop 12 on my computer after a reformat. I was previously using Elements 10. i am not getting this error when trying to import photos from my camera. Photoshop Elements does not support the color space. I am using a Nikon D3200 camera to download from. I never had this problem with Elements 10 using the same camera. How do I fix this?

    It turns out that this problem went away after the program crashed.  Everything seems to be working well now.
