How to keep the colors from RAW files in JPG?
4 months ago
I'm using Nikon D700 and for processing multiply images Lightroom 4, for more detail work PS CS6.
After my last shoot I ran to a problem that I can not solve for last few days, I was Google-ing out and tried many different approaches but nothing helped.
What is it about:
I was shooting wake boarders on a nice sunny day and I wanted to increase the colors a lot so I set picture control on Vivide and incised saturation to +3, hue to +1, my shutter speed was 1/2000, F5, ISO Lo 0.7, WB: auto, I was shooting in RAW on Nikon D700.
When I opened the RAW files in ACDSee I loooooved the result but since I need to deliver JPG files and to do some cropping I import them in Lightroom and BOOM my beautiful colors despaired, I tried with Photo shop, same result, also with Nikon software, I also tried to edit directly from ACDSee but soon as I click edit button the same thing happens. I also tried to increase saturation, hue, play with colors to get the same effect but I just can not get the same colors like in raw files. Also I noticed that Lightroom first opens good looking pictures (just like I want) and than without me touching anything one by one he converts them or does something that makes colors disappear.
I know that each of this programs have certain color profile set and in photo shop I can chose between many color profiles but If I change the sRGB settings I think that when I deliver pictures to the client he will see them based on his settings + he doesn't need them for print, he needs them for internet display.
After 3 days of internet research I'm becoming bit desperate, so if any of you had similar problem or know the solution please help !!!
Thank you so much
