Hi.

I noticed that when I upload images to Fotolia, and that large previrew when mouse over, it has dull washed colors, but on other sites colors are preserved OK. Did you notice that problem?

I can't say I notice much difference between FT, SS & IS. I've always thought that DT's previews somehow makes colours look particularly rich & vibrant but no idea how this is achieved.

I notice that too, at first I was thinking that I forgot to convert from aRGB in sRGB, but I wasn't....

There is some difference between agencies...

May I ask what color profile you are using Peter? Because if you are using Adobe RGB  image might look  a bit dull on the web some sites automatically converts the thumbs to SRGB colour profile to make the colours pop but I don't think FT does so that might be the problem.

I've noticd for a while that especially istockphoto and Dreamstime have more "punch" in their images. I think they have an algorithm while generating the preview image that lifts the saturation a bit.

Peter, the way PS is configured (Preserve Embedded Profile) means that the profile used by your camera is preserved.  You should use "Convert to Working Profile" in the Color Management Policies.
