I’ve had this on-going problem for a while with uploading images onto different SNS services (ie. facebook/twitter/naver blog/dropbox) ever since I changed my computer from a windows-based laptop to a macbook air.
Whenever I uploaded the photos, they were significantly less vibrant in colour, and less saturated. I even tried to upload to flickr/500px/picasa (so called the photo-albums), and they were also so horrible :( There’s a reason why I shoot my pictures in raw format, so later I can retouch them to their best possible appearance!
ex. the photo will usually look like this, less saturated, less vibrant, less fun.
Before saving your raw files to jpg on mac,
1. Pull down the “Image” menu and select “RGB Color” and “8 Bits/Channel” (most of the times, it would be already in this mode).
2. “Edit” Menu and select “Convert to profile”. Then chose “Profile sRGB IEC61966-2.1, Engine Adobe (ACE), Intent Relative Colorimetric, Use Blackpoint Compensation, Use Dither.”
3. Although you will still see a bit of discolouration (well what can you do, that’s what online services do to our photos!)
ex. the same photo above, was supposed to look like THIS (at least…)!
