Guys I am having a really annoying problem. I am designing an app and working with my developer. Everytime I export a graphic of a specific green, it's always come out the wrong tone of green. I don't know what to do , I checked the color settings and I'm matching everything but it just always comes out different.

Please see the attachment:

The original design I did and the correct one is the one on the right. Please focus on the green color. It is a strong/vibrant type of green. According to my photoshop, the hex code for it is o3efbc

-

Now the problem is, whenever I give this color code to my developer OR i export any assets like png's, it's coming out like you see on the left side, where the green looks lighter and faded style. But it's the same color hex code. Can someone help me? It's really annoying me

He there. I am not suggesting this "is" your problem, but it happened to me when I was a working Photog years back and my prints arrived with the wrong colors similar to what you describe. My issue was color space. I was working in a very wide gamut space and exported to sRGB resulting in a missing color. That is the first place I would look. You may have already and your issue may be different. All the best I know how frustrating that can be.

Looks like your working in Adobe RGB and then exporting as sRGB. Change your colour space in Photoshop to sRGB and then use 00f4b7. That produces the same 'correct' green as the one you've shown in your screenshot when exporting as png.

Hey Seb I don't understand that.

First I have to open my PSD designs? What about if I want that same green and then want to tell the developer the code of it - even for the developer it's coming out faded

I can't seem to find the code for that green i want and found :(

What are your colour settings within photoshop? Should be set on sRGB -2.1

Try creating a new photoshop document, make sure colour settings are set on sRGB, image-->mode-->check RGB/8bit, then create that colour and export as png with no colour conversion.

I did what you told me but you can see it's still not right

The left side is new document as you said set up

Right is whatever I have with the right color...but it's just existing in there

This is so annoying

This is the color I get - 03efbc (for what i want on the right side) but that same code is also the same gteen as on left side but its different, lighter
