The faded Opera

Dang. After uploading the Redcoat image I thought it looked a little washed out on site in the browser compared with the image viewed off my computer, so I played with the settings when saving it as a jpeg, this time including the ICC profile for colour compensation. Didn’t seem to make any difference online, but thought I’d try viewing it in Safari, and lo; the newer version had a more vibrant red compared with the old. Firefox and Plainview also showed the newer image as more vibrant. Seems to just be Opera, which I only use with this site, that’s not enhancing the image with the ICC.

When I re-saved the image with the ICC  included I also strengthened the shadow and altered the lightbulb-balloon at the same time (because constant fiddly adjustment is my curse), but the red coat remained unchanged (except, obviously, for whatever enhancements the ICC profile creates).

So if the red left (earlier) looks the same as the red right (later), then it’s likely the browser you’re using isn’t utilising the ICC profile.

Might help to pop both images open in different tabs and flick between the two.
