One of my clients wants me to change license plates on cars (he owns a dealership). I change the plates, and after saving to bitmap (jpeg), the shades of the colors drastically change. I'm saving them without ICC profile, without color conversion but the problem remains.
You must embed the colour profile as a matter of principle.
Whichcolour profile to choose for your work?
In circumstances where users down the line may not use colour management or for web use then sRGB is generally considered to be the de facto working colour space since it is most likely to give a reasonable result..
