Question: How did you globalize your color settings?

9 years ago from , Product Designer @ YouEye. #ArtsTechSF Co-organizer


I read this article, applied the settings, restarted my Photoshop- all to no avail. What's the best way to approach globalizing color settings?

    Hi, I’m the author of the article. I’ll do what I can to help.

    When you say “all to no avail”, what result are you seeing, and what are you expecting?

    If you’re using CS6, I’ve made some tweaks and updates to the article. They can be seen here: http://bjango.com/articles/photoshop/

      Hi Marc, awesome! Totally did not expect a response from the author. When I said "all to no avail", I meant that I had applied all changes in the article to an existing PSD without seeing any difference in hex codes afterward. I'll check out the CS6 tweaks today and let you know how that goes. Thanks!

    At my studio we use the exact solution Marc gave. I'd say give the CS6 solution a try.

    I decided to leave everything on default (sRGB) since other design apps like Sketch work in this color mode, so when I need to switch from Photoshop to Sketch everything looks horrible since the HEX values are different, also tools like FrankdeLoupe (that is meant for use with Photoshop) grabs colors as if they were sRGB withouth caring if your document is in Monitor RGB or other... and since I'm currently doing more web work, this works for me. :)

    Having all in sRGB
