    Hey.

    I recently noticed that I'm having problem with color accuracy problems from my designs in Photoshop to how their looking in browsers.

    Everything seems to take on a slightly washed out feel in the browser.

    If I use the color picker in photoshop and apply that hex value to say the body element the color looks different then it did in Photoshop.

    Again slightly washed out or just a little lighter!

    If I use save for web in Photoshop the image in the browser again will look slightly washed out or lighter?

    If once I have laid some page elements out and applied some color styles etc - then I do a screen grab using apples grab - bring that image back into Photoshop the colors are off from the original design?

    I don't think have Photoshop set to anything other then RGB

    I export using save for web at png24 no transparency.

    Is there something simple I am missing?

    Andy.

    Actually I seem to still be having problems with hex values when using the photoshop color picker?

    And they say talking to yourself is a sign of insanity. Seems to be working quite well for you ;) The info may be useful to others as they come across the thread though, so thanks for sharing the answer as well.
