I've run into a weird color problem with one of my vectors. The colors looked good to me in Illustrator both before and after I converted the vector image to jpg. Then I saw them online after they were accepted, and discovered that the colors looked way over-saturated. I uploaded the jpg to my website for a test and discovered the same over-saturated colors there, too. I don't understand it, the colors looked fine in Photoshop and in Windows Explorer. It was only after uploading them that the color change occurred. Oddly enough, the colors look fine on CanStock but none of the other agencies. What am I missing here? Does anyone have any idea why it happened and how I can prevent the problem in the future? Thanks

Might be a CMYK/RGB thing, web browsers and image viewers display CMYK JPGs with really strange, saturated colours. What are you using to create these JPGs?

They looked or they look ?  How do jpges look on your comp now ?

How did u save jpgs in what color mode and what u used illustrator to save them or were u opening eps files in PS and re-saving them ?



It has to be something with changing color mode at some point

Yes you were right - my mistake was that I neglected to change the color mode from CMYK to RGB before converting the image to jpg.  I just tried converting to RGB first, then saving the jpg. I uploaded the jpg to my webspace and the colors now look fine. Thanks for your help  :)
