Hi All,

I am on Mac OX 10.8.2 MacBook Pro Retina running SPP 5.3.2. I own a Sigma DP2 Merrill.

The working color space in SPP is set at ProPhoto. When I save these processed files as TIFF or JPEG in any color space, the colors do not match what I see in SPP, even if I open in Lightroom, Photoshop, Preview...

Why are the colors not matching from SPP to TIFF or JPG? How can I fix?

Thanks!

I don't use Mac so my answer just in general, may be someone with Mac will answer this better. In general I set my working space in PS as adobe RGB and when I save tiff or jpg from SPP...they will have adobe RGB color space, this is useful for if I want to print and so on...however, if you only share your photos in the web or before you post it, just us sRGB colors space for web displays...it is my default conversion from SPP setting, since I am not printing much and when I am printing, I just prepared accordingly.
