I have a jpg I output from Illustrator. When I view the jpg in Photoshop or a browser, the colors are consistent, but when I view the same jpg in Windows photo viewer, the colors are much darker. I think it might be a color profile issue, but I'm not sure. For what it's worth, I recently began using ColorMunki to calibrate my monitor, and this hadn't been an issue prior to that.

Windows Photoviewer is profile aware, but for example Irfanview is not (only internally).

Change profile to sRGB.

  • PS. Thunderbird is also NOT profile aware.
