I have an image that uses this color:

enter image description here

But when I export to seemingly any file type (PNG, JPG, TIFF), it changes to this color:

enter image description here

I have tried:

  • Setting color management profile to GIMP sRGB
  • Attempting what feels like every possible combination of options in the export pop-up: enter image description here
  • Following the instructions in this question.

The only place where the color seems to open correctly is in the Shotwell Viewer, which I believe is one of a couple image viewers installed by default on Ubuntu 16.04.

Any help is much appreciated.

    I see the color difference between your example images so how did you create them? What are your color management options?

  • I have color management enabled and the profile is set to GIMP sRGB. Unless you meant something else

  • Is you display color-managed too?

  • Have you tried the [ ] save gamma option in the png export dialog?

  • @Socowi yeah I've tried that. Xenoid, not sure about my monitor, but I have discovered that depending on where I open the file (e.g., Firefox vs. Chrome, different image viewers) I get the correct or incorrect color, so my diagnosis may be incorrect
