I put up a few pictures using iWeb 08 and the colors differ between the thumbnails and large pictures in safari. my older iWeb 06 photo pages do not have this problem.

All photos are in sRGB colorspace when I dropped them into iWeb.

Anyone else seeing a color difference in iWeb 08

I think I figured it out

goto

iWeb>Preferences

uncheck "Optimize images on import"

The color of the images are more consistent when this is off. It is however still doing something to the image and do not match the original pictures.

I thought it was just me (with my pics in iweb). My pics are lighter for sure and it's only in iweb '08 ('06 is just fine).

smoothisfast: Thanks for the hint too, I will try it out. You can also optimize each individual photo as well (I'm on a PC right now, so I forget the options for iweb right now).

I will try this tonight for sure.

What a drag this would be if left unchanged.

I'm a little confused, on person reports darker, less contrasty images in '08, one lighter.

Is there consistency to this problem?
