I know there have been many discussions about displays and buyers, resolutions, colors and quality of previews. I just found this today. The agency doesn't matter, but it just happens to be Pond5.

I switched to see if my gallery looked different on FireFox or Chrome, then tried Edge. Oh Oh, look at the colors. Probably on a Mac things would look different too.

Same computer, same time, same monitor, same video card, same capture software. Only think I can conclude is, each browser will look different for buyers, depending on their computer but also depending on their browser. I'm done worrying about sRGB or the sites thumbs and previews, there's nothing that we can control.



Anyone care to guess the browser and decide from your viewpoint, which image is best? Top, Middle or Bottom?

Of course that's kind of silly because if what I'm looking at is only here, everything depending on your computer, monitor and browser will also look different, won't it? Hmmmm

From a noname tablet runinng Chrome, in order of preference:

Fireworks: 3 (visible blue sky in bg), 1, 2
Eggs: 1 (orange-orange),  3, 2 (yellow orange)
Flag - Coins 1 -  3 (equal) 2: red and gold washed out
To my eyes same order as flag/ coins goes for the desert.

Interesting. I have several monitors -

On my one monitor, I couldn't tell the difference for the first image. On my second monitor, I could notice more shadows (that were hidden) in the first image (thought it was a volcano though, not fireworks), actually wasn't quite sure what it was a picture of).

On both, I notice a difference in the orange in the eggs.

Third, bottom coins look a bit better.

I wouldn't worry about it. You can't control it.

I'd say the first row :)

The colors seem more vibrant

First row better. Seen on my phone. Which one is the middle row? No like.

You noticed a difference by going to an agency and looking at your port in a side by side comparison in different browsers.

The question is how many people are going to do that? Follow up question: is the color, even the worst representation, going to deter sales? I think not. The variance is noticeable in a side by side comparison but still subtle.

I used to have two CRT displays connected to the same computer. They were both the same brand and model of display calibrated exactly the same and the color was still different between them.

The same issue exists in print. Anyone in the print biz will tell you the best you can go for is pleasing color. Color can vary even from one side of a sheet to the other and depends on many factors including how the pressman is feeling that day.

Moral of the story: Nitpicking is pointless.

Yes to that and all the others that observed, beyond our control. I wish I had my old Sony CRT monitor (which was just too big! Gone to recycling) I bet I could see more differences. But also a good point, doesn't matter because the potential buyer will be seeing what they see on their browser and monitor, just like all sites will have the same general saturation and colors. It's relative.

I wasn't asking about the images, they are not important, just the first that came up on P5 when I was looking and noticed the flag was different colors. Much more vibrant red.  And the eggs looked kind of green and faded. I suppose I should have looked to see which was closest to the actual shot I uploaded?

Bottom is Firefox, Top is Chrome and the washed out flat looking is Edge. That's the opinion of which browser I liked the look best.

Next week we ask, does the brand of mouse really make a difference on the way your Internet works?  ;)

What if I find it neither interesting nor upsetting?

(nothing against the OP, but after many years in photography I just find that getting the same colour twice both on digital media and print is nearly impossible, better leave it alone)
