Background color changing after export

Hey, 

I exported a logo and the background color changed from turquoise to greener. 

I'm using an RGB color mode.

The problem seems to be only when I view the photo on my phone or upload it as a profile pic on my Instagram page.

Can you please have an idea?

Easy enough: You are not using color management and thus the colors look different on different screens because you are not adjusting them with those alternate displays in mind. That asudf online services will always mangle your files and change the appearance ever so slightly. You cannot do anything about this part, but you sure can improve your baseline results by using CM.

There are so many different screens out there. You cannot know that. Embedding a color profile into your file might give you a chance to at least meet those color managed screens. But you still never know what Facebook and others do with that profile. So: you cannot know it.

 

CM = color management. You should use it, although in screen design you won't be able to control how everyone on the planet sees your color.

As has already been mentioned: learn color management and use it.

But in the end you have no influence on Facebook AND you have no influence on all the computer systems of people.

And in case you are exporting a PNG: Illustrator doesn't embed the color profile in it.
