Using the Right Color Profile When Sharing Photos Online

A simple mistake that gets us all now and again, but an easy one to rectify. When you are getting ready to share a photo online and you’re exporting from Lightroom or Photoshop, export as sRGB.

Exporting using the AdobeRGB or ProPhotoRGB color profile may look good to you at first but, depending on the browser/device the photo is being seen on, those colors you spent hours getting JUST right will be totally out of whack.

Rule of Thumb: Export as AdobeRGB or ProPhotoRGB for printing your images; export as sRGB for sharing online.
