I've been asked by a clothing company if I could help them. They adjust their photos they make for their catalog on a monitor that's calibrated to 5800K. They get a good match between the screen and their printed proofs. They use Adobe RGB as their working space, and then convert this to ISO Coated v2 print profile.

But then they go back to their Adobe RGB files, convert this to sRGB and view the files on a monitor profiled to match sRGB specs. They understand that the whites will be different because of the different color temperature of the monitors, but they complain of the change of the colors, especially the light colors. I can of course readjust the images so that they will look better, but as they use a lot of images that's a lot of extra work. Can I convert the images in any way so I would get a better match between print and web?

The trick I used to use to have print and web colors look the same is to take the CMYK files and convert them to sRGB. Since the Adobe RGB conversion to CMYK will change colors and they are happy with the printed versions, transforming the CMYK to sRGB will keep pretty much all the CMYK gamut in the sRGB files. The one area that is somewhat lacking in sRGB is really saturated cyans...100% cyan in CMYK is out of the sRGB gamut.

But the main problem is not colors out of gamut. It's more the color shift in light colors, like the yellows. But converting from the CMYK files might solve some of the problem.

I'm not talking about out of gamut colors except for cyan...but the color you would get from the CMYK file>sRGB will be very close to the print ed colors because the image has already gone from Adobe RGB to CMYK. Going from CMYK to sRGB will pretty much lock all the colors to the gamut of CMYK inside of sRGB (except cyan).

Try it...

Try using CIECAM02 Photoshop plugin if you're on Windows:

On a Mac I'd simply use ACR/LR wtpt correction.

Haven't had time to play with this plug-in until now. But it doesn't show up after the installation. Is it possible to use in Photoshop CS6. Do I have to run the 32 bit version?
