wrong colors !!

I am having this argument with a client of mine I am building a site for. I build the site on my Mac with a calibrated screen.
Strangely enough, when I use a jpg image as bkg, a very dark turquoise, on the clients screen the color is totally different !!
She is on a PC with a normal screen without brightness and contrast modifiers. Her PC runs Vista.
I do not understand how that is possible? I converted the bkg file to gif, and it remains the same ???
Since I can give no logical and satisfactory explanation why this is happening, let alone that I can solve the problem, we are having a serious argument about that !!

THX for any help !

The biggest reason has to do with the gamma settings of your typical Windows PC. It is set very differently from a Mac and makes everything look darker.

She says: the darker the better so that should be no problem.
Also she wants the color to be a dark wine red ??? Havent got a clue what color that could be?

Why not get her to find the nearest web safe colour from one of the pickers
online or on her computer and then you can apply that?
Or she could send any example on an image - or a linked web page - and you
could sample that and apply it?

Failing that make a quick swatch up for her to choose from?
hope this helps

Brian

Just ask her to send you the bottle of dark red wine. That should do the trick!

would it not be better to google ‘hex colors’ and select a color you both agree on??
that way, she chooses and you do what your client want’s.
you could even iff you are not to sure about your use of color use a app. like color schemer studio?
