comment Colors in PNG inconsistent between Windows and Mac
Looking at the values you give in edit 1. my guess is that OS is irrelevant, as photoshop and paint.net provided the same value. Photoshop CS3 on Windows: (181,10,0)

comment What elements should be on an iPhone app's splash screen?

comment How to get this design in photoshop?
as a totally personal opinion: that shadow effect is awful- i don't know why everyone is using it all across the web. I should add: if you want to know why i think its 'awful' i'd be happy to answer that in another question
