Color profile for TIFF images

  • Question
  • Updated 8 years ago
What color space do you recommend for images? I created my pdf from InDesign using TIFF files in Adobe RGB 1998, tagged. When I preview the pdf (Unseen Hamptons: Baymen) on my computer, it looks fine. However, when I preview the image on your site, the skin tones have a green cast. This usually means that the color profile is not being read. Is the on-screen preview accurate? If so, why is the ICC profile not being read?



PS, I'm not crazy about having to use another site, with another password, user id, sign in process, etc. to get tech support. I'd much rather see it integrated into your site.

You can use any colorspace for images you like. Most people use AdobeRGB 1998.

The preview on the website is meant to show a rough approximation of what the issue will look like, but should not be used for exact color proofing, due to uncontrollable variances in browser/display color settings.

So we recommend uploading your PDF and ordering a proof to see the colors firsthand. You can do this without publishing the issue, so no one will see it but you.
