Why is there such a difference in the editing view & save preview views? I am using Adobe Illustrator CS6 for Mac OS X.

Color Settings: North America General Purpose 2

Profile: sRGB

Export Format: PNG-24

CMYK Color Mode

RGB Color Mode

could you please tell us a bit more about the settings you're using, color profiles, file format of your export etc.? As-is, your question is very hard to answer and could very well be put on hold because it's 'unclear what you're asking'. Thanks! –  Vincent Mar 7 at 16:59

It looks like the color settings are North America General Purpose 2. The profile is sRGB. File format is PNG-24. Sorry for the lack of information, if I need to include more let me know. –  willhblackburn Mar 7 at 17:07
    
@Bakabaka see above –  willhblackburn Mar 7 at 17:20
    
What version of Photoshop is that? I'd assume CC due to the dark UI, but I have more options in the Save for Web dialog than your images show -- specifically color setting/profile options. –  Scott Mar 7 at 17:28

What it looks like to me, is one of two things...

  1. you are saving to png(an RGB format), from a CMYK file

Solve: Under file, check your document color mode and make sure it's set to RGB, illustrator defaults to CMYK for print and you should be able to change that in your preferences if you want.

or

  1. you are viewing some proof color mode

Solve: Under view, make sure proof colors is unchecked, or under view you can go into proof setup and select sRGB as your proof setup, and that should match your color space.

Additional Notes: You might also want to open your color palette and make sure that is set to RGB in the options menu at the far right of the palette.
