sRGB 8* and/or 8# meaning - Photoshop

When I 'save as' or 'export as' - in Photoshop - from 16 bit Adobe RGB to 8 bit sRGB jpg the saved or exported image is an 8 bit sRGB but it sometimes appears as 8 or 8* or 8#.  Why do I get different results and is any of them wrong (and what am I doing wrong)?  

 

If it helps my workspace is set to Adobe RGB

Hi there,

An asterisk outside of the color information simply means that the file has unsaved changes. Save the file and the asterisk goes away.

The symbols inside the color information only apply to Photoshop:-

  • An asterisk (*) means the color profile associated with the file is not the same as your current working color profile. E.g. your working profile is set to sRGB and you open an image with, or assign to an image, an Adobe RGB profile.

  • A number sign (#) or pound sign, means the file has no color profile associated with it (i.e. the image is not color managed).


Regards,
Sahil

Hello, if there is nothing: the document matches your workspace, * the document has a different profile, and # tells you it is an untagged document.
