I hope this is not too silly a question. This really shows that I am a rookie.
When checking some of my images here, I notice that some look washed out. I know that Pro RGB can look washed out on some monitors. And when I test my images before submitting I have programs that show the true color representation.
But when I look at other members images, they look more vibrant. Even on differnt monitors I have noticed this.
Does anyone else see this with their work or others?
Thanks .. it is always helpful. I appreciate the comments.
I only upload Pro RGB. I didn't think sRBG was accepted.
When I compare to other's portfolios, that is where I notice that mine look less colorful. But the images that I save in sRGB on my computer files look very rich and colorful. My Images on my DT portfolio are less colorful and I have attributed that to being Pro RGB and my monitor is not claibrated for it.
But ....For instance when I look at your portfolio, the images look colorful.... even though they are Pro RGB. Are they Pro RBG?
Thanks for the link, Maigi. Now I understand why my picture was washed out a little bit. I saved in AdobeRGB and it looked okay when I uploaded and viewed in DT with my Mac laptop. But when I looked again with my PC, it washed out.
My question is rather hypothetical. Do buyers get interested to download an image by the quality of the color? I might (if I were a buyer) choose to download a vibrant colored image rather than a washed one.
Canon 350D + 50mm f/1.8 II is definitely my favorite.

Problem with uploading ProRGB is that it uses a very large color gamut or range that is not always reproducible on all monitors. sRGB is the standard for web presentation. For print however a wider gamut is often preferable. If you work in ProRGB and then 'convert to sRGB profile' before saving your file as a jpeg for DT, you will end up with a brighter more vibrant image.
