My coworker and I are exporting the same file and are using the same PNG setting but our colors are very different. While mine are bright and match the original file, his are murky looking — we cannot figure out why his colors are so off in comparison. The top image is the export from his computer and the bottom is what the file should look like —I have also included his export settings. The original file does not contain any spot colors and is set to CMYK as the final products will be printed, the PNGs will be used as samples on a website. The top image is his export, the bottom image is what the file should look like.The top image is his export, the bottom image is what the file should look like.Screen Shot 2020-07-14 at 8.26.58 AM.png

Make sure he doesn’t have color management turned off in Color Settings—should not be set to Emulate Adobe InDesign 2.0 CMS Off.

 

I can replicate his color by turning Off CM

With CM on and sRGB and US Web Coated SWOP as document assignments:

What are the document’s assigned color profiles? Check Edit>Assign Profiles... (not Color Settings’ Working Spaces).
