JPEGs become more saturated every time they are opened in Photoshop

Hello everyone,

 

I have this problem which has been touched upon before, as I have seen. This is what happens:

 

1. I shoot RAW, develop my RAWs in Lightroom or CameraRAW, then process them in Photoshop. All of that work is done in Adobe color space, both in the camera and the software.

2. I save the processed photos as TIFFs.

3. I then export a JPEG version from the TIFF, using the "Save for Web" option. I check "Convert to sRGB" and, as the JPEGs is intended for internet use only, I select "Internet Standard RGB (No colormanagement)" as Preview. The exported JPEG retains basically the same colors as the TIFF, all is good. If I ever need to reopen that TIFF to export another JPEG from it, using the same settings, everything is still fine.

4. The problem arises when, for some reason, I do not go back to that TIFF (which may be archived on another drive), but open the previously exported JPEG again, for example to create another one of a different size: then, the JPEG that opens in Photoshop is super-saturated, and so is the resulting "second JPEG" if I choose to create a new one from that first one, using the same "Save for Web" option.

 

I use a PC running Windows 10, fully updated, and the latest versions of Adobe software, as I am a subscriber. The problem is not related to any internet application or browser, as it happens internally, within Photoshop, when I open in Photoshop a JPEG previously created from a TIFF as described above.

 

Many thanks in advance for your ideas on how to resolve this.

 

Dominique

I should say the most likely cause of this is to have "Embed colour profile" OFF. Make sure the option is ON.

Simple as that! Many, many thanks!

 

I checked that box and exported my JPEG. When I launched it again in Photoshop, I received a warning that the embedded profile of that JPEG (sRGB) was different from the one normally used in Photoshop (Adobe RGB), and that the policy was to discard embedded profiles if they were different. So, I went into Color Settins to adjust my Color Management Policies, and everything seems to be fine.

 

Again, many thanks for your help! I am a happy customer.

I suspect you may still have a problem.

 

What Test Screen Name is saying is that you should check "Embed Color Profile" in the Save For Web dialog. Not in Photoshop.

 

Photoshop's color settings should not be changed. Color management policies should always be set to "preserve embedded profiles". That's the default. If you changed that, change it back immediately before any further damage happens.

 

Don't change anything in color settings unless you know what you are doing and why.

Thanks for your concern, but no, no more problem. I did indeed make the change in the Save for Web dialog.
