Color difference in photoshop and other programs

When I upload photos to print, the photo is dull and the colors don't match what they were in photoshop. If I print them through a commercial print shop they turn yellowish, or blueish. Right now I have been trying to figure out the correct color settings that it should be in. At this point, I need to know exactly what my color settings should be. I have tried in SRGB, Prophoto rgb. Please help, I need to get some printing done. Maybe it's more than color settings, I just don't know. 

 

Thank you in advance,

Yvonne

Hi Yvonne. Here's some info about ICC profiles to get you started. You'll need to understand some colour management to grasp the situation. 

Photoshop uses ICC profiles [which are embedded in images] in conjunction with the display screen's ICC profile in a calculation to provide an accurate onscreen rendition of the image pixels*

(*IF the display screen is calibrated and profiled accurately, that’s an important IF).

 

Prints made by a print service using good colour management should match your screen well (if the prints are viewed in good daylight conditions).

 

Many application programs are not colour managed so ignore the display profile and the image profile. This means they will often show images quite differently.  If producing images that may be viewed in non colour managed workflows then sRGB is generally considered to be the best default colour space. 

 

Perhaps try viewing and printing this (Adobe RGB colourspace) reference test image?

You can convert to sRGB and send to the print service, if that's what they require. 

 

I hope this helps
