Photoshop: Save for Web/srgb adds a red tint

I have a picture shot as Canon RAW /Pro Photo RGB. I exported it directly from Lightroom and converted to Srgb/jpeg. I also exported the file from Lightroom to Photoshop and exported it via save for web and clicked "convert tp Srgb" and made a jpeg.

The result is two very different looking photos when opened in browsers that support color profiles i.e. Safari and Firefox. The one exported from Lightroom looks good and same as in Lightroom. The one exported from Photoshop looks much more red and very unpleasing. Why is this? This is bad because my normal workflow goes from LR to Photoshop and the save for web. I can send you the photos if you wish.

Upload one of each using the add image button at the bottom right of the reply box, and we'll have a look. It's usually easier to answer if we see the pictures.

A screen shot of your Save For Web settings may also yield some clues.

I had the same problem, but also a solution ;o)

  • Export from Lightroom using "sRGB" works fine (no "oversaturation")

  • Export form Photoshop using the "Save for Web" option and checking the "convert to sRG" resulted with a oversaturation, especially

The solution: Check also (or only) the checkbox "embed color profile" in the Photoshop "Saver for Web" option panel.
