    Hello, I just got Photoshop CS3 and im having problems when images are
    "save as" jpg. When i upload them to the web or use them on the web
    they appear in over saturated colors or dont appear at all.

    does any one know the cause of this?

    ps - i have my monitor completely calibrated.

  2. You probably have it 'completely calibrated' for CS3, but NOT for use
    outside the Adobe Colour Space.

    DL a good monitor calibration display, set the -=monitor=- controls, then
    re-do your Adobe Profile.

    If you read text message now and then then you may have read that web
    (browser) uses sRGB color space, and if you set Photoshop to aRGB color
    space then you may see some difference
    Monitor calirated has nothing to do with COLOR SPACE. You can try to save
    the photos you want to post on your web site using sRGB see if it helps.

    This does sound like a Photoshop working color space issue. Can you provide
    a link to one of the images that shows this problem?

    So what do they look like when you - Save for Web which BTW you
    should be doing.

    I have never saved for Web to know if this will save sRGB color space or
    just some pressing option. But whatever it's, the main thing is to save to
    sRGB color space for web viewing.

    Me, I have thousands (somewhere around 30+GB or so) of photos on my web
    site, but I save as aRGB color space, cuz I do for printing not for web
    viewing (I may have about dozen saved using sRGB color space)

    Not necessary.

    You still keep the sRGB file and make another file for the web. The web
    file does not have imbedded profiles and is only for web viewing.

    You can make an action which takes the original file, then creates a web
    file, saves this in another folder then closes the original file without
    saving any alterations to the original.

    Web file images are about 30-50% smaller than a sRGB jpg.

    I have unlimited storage photo hosting site so all my photos are 100%
    ready to download and print. Also, most of them are privated, very few
    available to public (local communities or parish's events)

  9. Even if you want to make all your photos accessible for customers to print, you
    should provide separate screen sized copies for previewing. In my photo albums
    I provide two alternative sizes -- normal for viewing on a 1024 by 768 screen
    and large for viewing on a 1280 by 1024 screen.

    The normal images range from 35 to 180K, the large from 70 to 300K, and the
    originals from 500K to 2.6M. The size of the normal directory is 15M, that of
    the large directory is 27M, while the originals take up 197M.

    If you force all your customers to download the full size images every time, you
    will be wasting a lot of bandwidth, and causing them a lot of unnecessary

    I give them the permision to print as many as they wish, and do whatever
    they want to do with the final retouched photo.

    My photo hosting offers "small" "midium" "large" and "original" so they
    are free to chose whatever size they want to view and download. They can
    download to print to whatever lab they want, or they can order the print
    directly from the site and pay to the lab not me.

    By default, the size is 2x3 which they can print 4x6, 8x12, 12x18 etc..
    and I put a note (caption) if the photo is cropped for 8x10 whatever ratio.

    Anyway, I am retired so I don't photograph as often as used to, and I lets
    all members of my parish to have accessed to all parish's events and
    religion's related from other out of state events for free (documentary and

    So if these images are opened up on another PC what are the colours like

    Or is it just your PC thats giving the over saturation?

    The photos display whatever color space I saved.
    I didn't say anything about my PC gives over-sated, may be you need the
    answer from someone else?

    I don't think it's CS3.I download to Picasa 3 and only my 1Ds Mark III leaves oversaturated photos.I have had some success deleting and downloading again.I hope this helps some.
