what color profile does XD work with? because i work with standard sRGB (IEC61966-2.1) and i got an EIZO monitor, so i see exactly what i get. but pictures in sRGB in photoshop looks different than in XD. XD has much more red in it. this alos happens in the preview.

The team informed me that the difference is because Photoshop uses color correction/color spaces, and XD uses raw device colors..

For more info, see Color Management (set color profiles) – Adobe XD Feedback : Feature Requests & Bugs

Thanks,

Preran

I believe by "raw colors", they mean device color, though I can't be sure.

Is that correct Preran?

That means that the colors shown by XD are dependent on the display you're using and the app is not using device-independent protocols to ensure consistent color from app to app and display to display.

So, as you suspected, it appears XD is not color managed, which is a square-one problem for professional designers.

It means whatever I export from XD lacks an applied color profile. It's really important since browsers interpret image data differently, when they lack a color profile. E.g. Firefox uses the maximum of the display's color space while Safari uses the active display color space. This results in unwanted oversaturated colors in Firefox. This should be a high priority feature since Adobe XD should be a professional software for professional work. Nobody would even think about exporting a print-PDF without color management.

Even I have the same issue. Imported Images i.e. JPEG, PNG colors are drastically changed. If I want to use the color picker on the same image it is taking the wrong code compared to photoshop.

 

Please solve it as soon as possible.

Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about the trouble. XD uses SRGB throughout so for the best experience, I'd recommend setting the SRGB as the monitor profile. Having said that this happens since XD is yet not color-managed. I'll pass on your feedback with the Engineering team and I'd also request you to please upvote this UserVoice request: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/17480899-color-man...

 

This is the best way of communicating with the Engineering and Product Management teams regarding issues and suggestions so they can be implemented in future releases. 

 

Regards

Rishabh

I'm trying to reopen discussion in another forum thread related to this topic.  It was marked as "Solved" but I don't think the issue is actually solved yet.  Check it out here:

 

https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-xd/washed-out-colors-after-export-in-xd/m-p/11361483?page=1#M35...

 

Essentially, there seems to be a discrepency between the colors represented within the XD software and the way they are represented once they are exported or shared online.

I found a solution that works for me using Photoshop: 

You can try exporting with Convert to sRGB and Embed Color Profile in File > Export > Export As (PNG)

You can also open the image with Windows and then make a Copy, the colors are now as seen not washed out.
