Color Profiles

I’m having a heck of a time getting colors to display properly in Exhibeo.

There’s a knowledgebase article on using the working profile, but no matter what I do, I can’t get the images I perfect in Photoshop to display properly in Exhibeo. The images are always over-saturated, especially with red. I’ve tried converting and assigning profiles, but I can’t get what I see in Photoshop to match what I see in Exhibeo.

What am I missing?

I wish the product would just retain color profiles instead of converting everything to “working RGB”.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

Hi William,

Exhibeo will convert your images to SRGB and strip the color profile attached to the image. The main reason for stripping the profile is down to file size. Without doing so, some profiles can ballon the size of a file that should be 10s of KB, to 100s of KB.

There are many differences of opinions in this area but you might want to take a look at this article, which shows one way of working with Photoshop to prevent shifts in colors: http://viget.com/inspire/the-mysterious-save-for-web-color-shift

Hope this helps,

Joe

That article was very helpful. As a professional photographer, I depend on color profiles, but when working with the web, it never occurred to me to simply switch them off. Seems to work well now.

Actually, no that didn’t fix it, although it helped in some areas.

Even after disabling the color profiles, Exhibeo is still over-saturating the images for me, especially in the reds. This appears in the Exhibeo preview as well as the files it generates for the web. There is no color profile, so this is weird to me.

Am I the only one with this issue? That is, is there something I have wrong in my setup that is causing this?

Joe, not to step on William’s toes, but how do you advise we prep our files prior to importing them into Exhibeo?

Can you send a sample image into support(a)softpress.com so we can take a look, please?

I know this is an old thread - but it concerns exactly the same issues. Colour Shifts (Color for our american friends)

I’ve just purchased Exhibeo - as I’m a long term Freeway user. I need a simple slideshow on a homepage, was using iFrame, but HTML5 isn’t happy with that anymore. So replacing it with something else.

Some of my slides have borders or backgrounds as they are text etc. The background of the website is grey - cccccc. The backgrounds of all images etc. are grey ccccccc. The images are saved in sRGB. They are exported as JPG or PNG with sRGB profile embedded in them.

Create a gallery in Exhibeo - and the grey is NOT the same as my website background. You can see this effect in Exhibeo. itself, even before you even upload to web. Exhibeo has changed the colours somehow. Reading above, I believe Exhibeo strips the sRGB profile. That’s fair enough. However, the image is still in sRGB - so the profile being attached or not should make no difference. Clearly something else is happening that is causing a colour shift.

This is my test area - where you can see 3 slides showing what I mean.

I’ve tried the exact same images in WOWslider as well. Where it works perfectly (the greys are spot on) however, I haven’t found a WOWslider theme without all the ugly buttons on that I like yet and with WOW I need to code - and I’m not good at coding, so prefer the Freeway method if at all possible.
