    i have been having problems when saving files from PS , i edit in PS then save as jpeg and when i open them on the computer they look very muddy and nothing like the colours that i edited, example below . i took the first image into Ps to clone out lose threads on the hat and darken areas around the model and desided to flip image, when i was happy i saved back to hard drive and the result was the second image . I have tried saving images since and have had the same result. Any thoughts /ideas as to what is happening would be greatly appreciated.

    looking at the exif data for both, the colour space on the first is sRGB and on the second is Uncalibrated.

    Have you set the Colour Settings under the Edit menu ?

    Set to Adobe RGB and at the bottom it says 'Desaturate Monitor Colours'. Make sure you un-tick that box.

    Pro photo you don't need and sRGB is really for viewing images on the web. If you are going to print use Adobe RGB.

    What is your camera colour set at.
    I don't understand where the icc profile is coming from.
    I will fire the PC up tomorrow and have a search about on the net. It's very frustrating I know but don't change to much till you find an answer, you might make it worse.

    The color change is probably due to incorrect converting across color gamuts. For example, saving a JPEG in the ProPhoto RGB gamut. When the file is read, it will be read as an sRGB JPEG and all of the color information will be incorrect.

    If you are using Adobe Camera Raw, at the bottom center is a panel identifying your preferences. This identifies what color gamut will be sent to Photoshop. If it is incorrect, simply click on it and change it.

    In Bridge click on Edit->Color Settings, here is where you synchronize the color settings across all of your Adobe products. Making your choice here should reset Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.

    In Photoshop, again under Edit>Color Settings, make sure that the Working Spaces is what you want.

    I prefer to do all of my editing in ProPhoto RGB as I then have more control over how the colors captured by the camera are converted to the much smaller color gamuts such as Adobe RGB, sRGB, and CMYK. Otherwise you are throwing a lot of color data away before you even start editing.

    When you edit an image, especially when using Curves, Levels or Saturation, you are moving colors (reassigning color data) up and down the scale. With the smaller color spaces that movement hits a wall and any color data moved beyond that wall are clipped. Once it is clipped the original color data is lost. If you pull back that data, moving the Curve/Slider the other way, all of the data that was moved beyond the limit of the color gamut definition was reassigned to the nearest color within the definition.

    Editing in ProPhoto RGB calls for additional steps when converting to smaller color spaces. You need to choose the Conversion Intent (under Color Settings) to what works best for the photo and then convert the image using Edit->Convert to Profile and set the bit-depth to 8-bits (Image->Mode->8-Bits/Channel) and then Save As JPEG. Using the Export function works well and you can set up a default. Saving to Web has limitations.

    Most commercial print shops require an image to be 8-bit sRGB. If you are printing on a high quality inkjet printer then you have the capability to print beyond the sRGB and even the Adobe RGB color space for richer, more vibrant/saturated colors you can also use a larger color gamut and 16-bit data depth. You then set up the profile for the paper type you are using and print to that profile.
