Color Management question (I think)

Check out this photo, the jersey on the Buffalo player appears to me to be purple on my Windows 10 computer. This holds in every browser I have (Firefox, IE, Edge, Opera). And because of this, I just calibrated my monitor with my SpyderX, and its still purple.


On my Android tablet in Firefox, it's dead nuts blue, not even a hint of purple. On my Android phone, it's purple.

 

How does it look on your screen(s)? It's supposed to be blue. What is going on? Can this be fixed?

No color management is capable on getting it right for all media devices.

I would call this purple, but on the blue side of purple.

I saved the image, which was in the .webp format, which Photoshop cannot open.

So I used ACDSee to save a jpg, which I then opened in Photoshop. The image was untagged, so I assigned the sRGB profile, which turned out to be correct, because image appearance did not change.

 

The sample below was taken between the two Fs in Buffalo, and contains a fair bit of red.

A pure blue would not contain any red (or green).

So I'm guessing that your computer is displaying correctly, although the Spyders have a somewhat bad reputation, especially older models.

Firefox on Android does not assign sRGB to untagged material by default, so it will most likely display wrong colors.

Until recently, you could configure color management on Firefox for Android, but it's no longer possible.

Have you tried a different browser, like Opera or Chrome?
