  • graphic/web color display problem

    I have a color issue that's driving me crazy.

    I just uploaded part of a page on a new site i'm working on just to make sure the nav looked ok on all browsers.

    What i noticed is that the colors of my graphics look true to my original design on Safari but horrible on Firefox. Firefox displays the colors significantly lighter than they should be and i can't figure out why. Every other site i visit looks virtually identical in safari and firefox.

    I am designing the site in illustrator cs2 and then copying and pasting each graphic element into photoshop cs2 where i save for web.
    I haven't changed any of my color settings - illustrator and photoshop both set to the default sRGB IEC61966-2.1

    I am completely baffled at this point, so any help is appreciated.

    here is a link to the test page i am working on. it only has a menu at the top and part of a background image:

    Why aren't you saving for web/exporting directly out of Illustrator?

      Are you working in CMYK colour space in Illy or RGB?

        Try running the PNGs through a compressor like PNGMonster

          yep, i just needed to run it through a png compressor to strip out all the metadata. finally found a mac compatible program: http://pornel.net/imageoptim/en

          I had never heard of this - thanks!!!

            if the graphic is saved with a color profile attached to it, this problem will occur.

            the compressors strip out the color profile data and magically you have the same colors. But all you really need to do is save without a color profile.

              I understand what you are saying. I just think i might be a monomaniac. I have no interest in building in other forms of graphic design. I will probably have a bad time....

              Well, for one thing, logo design is a terrible entry point for a new designer trying to find clients and establish themselves. There are excellent designers with years of experience who avoid logo design...

              I do not have a degree in Graphic Design. My goal is to work freelance.
              This is what I am scared of since the country I live in does not respect design that much. You can rarely make a living out...

              I don't think I understand your question, and maybe you misunderstood my rant. I wasn't necessarily critiquing your logo collection, just voicing my opinion on logo collections as a whole.
