The reason I might ask is because here comes another bike rack. The last one of these shots I took was during the Scott Kelby World Wide Photowalk and it won first place from San Francisco. This one is much different. Isn’t it nice how we’re making bike racks into something pretty instead of the old way they were so utilitarian and industrial looking contraptions. Almost makes you want to ride a bike again just to be able to park it in one of these elegant sculptures that seem to be popping up all over the place now.
You’ve heard of color space? I have, but never really paid attention to it. My photos seemed to look fine and why change something if things are good?
Last week I posted a photo and when I went onto another computer to look at the post, the photo looked very dull. It turns out, after doing a couple quick Google searches, that my color space was messed up. My photo was in Adobe 1998 and that’s not very compatible with displaying on a monitor in certain browsers. It’s a good color space to use when printing a photo though. So many things to learn and keep track of. Isn’t that why photographers get paid the big bucks for the fine art we produce?
What did I learn? To display a photo in all web browsers so they do NOT appear dull, save the photo in sRGB color space. You can do that in Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Elements and several other consumer level photo editing applications.
