I know there are some replies on this topic but I can't make sense of this and nothing seems to work... I am not an expert user and just process photos through illustrator so that they are fit for my website. 

 

For some reason, this morning, when I try and place an image in illustrator, the colours are appearing really dull. I tried to do to Edit>color settings, and play around with the setting there but I cannot find what's wrong. Now when I try and place an image I get an alert box that the source material doesn't match the settings at the destination.

 

This is the first time I have ever seen this. I have no idea how to fix it. Is there someone who can help? The live chat option doesn't seem to be working so I can't speak to someone from Adobe?

Your issue is color management. And this cannot be adjusted correctly without learning it. No current publishing app works without color management. You *have* to learn it. FOr an introduction please check out: https://www.colourmanagement.net/advice/

In order to fully master it, you will have to dive deeper.

 

Illustrator is the wrong tool in order to work with pixel images. Use Photoshop, it does a better job at that.

Color management is definitely not something you want to "play around" with.

 

Are you in the US? Then you definitely don't want to use Coeated FOGRA profiles, unless you have your stuff printed in Europe.

Your issue might be as simple as that you have a CMYK document and place an RGB image in it. That could be solved easily by creating an RGB document to place your image into.

As for the color settings: please show them.
