Im stumped. Shoot Nikon Raw, Import to LR, those that need touched up I send from LR to PS. They always come in as 16bit, and I always have to change them to 8bit to save as .jpg.
The problem comes up when I host anywhere online. Im not sure if the problem is on my end, or what. I host to flickr, then link to their in any NS post. My Firefox used to not display colors correctly, they were very bland and desaturated vs what I thought I was uploading. I would open that same Flickr link in safari, and the colors would be true. So I thought it was just a Firefox cache issue.
Now I have another problem. They are uploading very bland and desaturated, yet displaying to me as true colors. So on my machine the pictures look how I want them to, yet to you guys they look like shit. I recently uploaded something to flickr, looked good, posted on NS and then it was desaturated. Everyone else has told me that both NS and Flickr are desaturated. However, this is what I see (left - flickr, right - ns)
What is this color shift, and where is it coming from. Does anyone see a problem in my workflow? I almost assume it has to do with changing from 16bit to 8bit but I don't know.
Yeah sorry this is my least thought out post in awhile.. Ignore the redundancy.
