Hi guys,

So I'm trying to upload a flyer to Twitter that I designed for a tennis club. The account is run by me on behalf of the club. I was happy with the way the flyer looked when I designed it in Photoshop, but when I go to upload it, the colours look way way over-saturated and there is also far too much contrast. :( In PS, the flyer looks perfect and the colours look natural, but once it goes to Twitter, the greens and blues become almost radioactive and it hurts my eyes to look at it. So I'm wondering if anyone might know what the problem is? I have Googled the answer but I seem to be the only one having this problem. :( I'd appreciate your help.

Thanks. :)

Make sure you converted it to srgb before upload.

I owe you one Greg; I would never have worked it out otherwise. :blush:

It looks perfect now. Thanks a million! :)

That's pretty cool. :D

I have another problem though and again, I would be very grateful if you could help. :blush: I need to print the flyer now but I don't want to print in srgb and I can't remember what colour profile I had before I converted it. :blush: So, my question is, if I am making a print(s) of the flyer, what colour profile do you recommend I use for the best results?

Thanks. :)

sRGB. I use it for 98% of my final output to print/web. Its very rare when someone requests otherwise or knows how to use ProPhoto/CMYK profiles.
