I am designing some banners and graphics for a client's website and I am finding it hard to find clean bright colours. I am using Adobe Indesign on an imac. I am saving all as jpegs in RGB. The worst is the bar of orange I have on her site (and also the blue) They end out coming darker and muted. I am looking for a bright, true orange and it comes out almost burnt umber - brownish - on client's website, even though it looks like a nice bright orange on the jpeg on my imac screen/monitor. I am using RGB colour in my swatches as well, and have tried several combinations but nothing. Also trying to get a nice bright blue, almost turquoise. Any ideas or help?
Ok, lets see. You create an image with bright colours, and when these are displayed on a website, they become murky?
- Open the jpgs in a few different browsers on your machine and see if they turn out different than from your original.
- Check a few different monitors/machines too, to see if it is consistent good/bad
- Check with your client if the content management system compresses images
