The Woes of Color

For the past year I had been using an old Sony Laptop that was given to me.  It was made in the mid 90's, sounded like a dinosaur and moved like one too.  I wasn't going to complain though as it did what I needed it to do.  A couple weeks ago though I finally gave in and invested in a new new laptop as I realized I was wasting a lot of time waiting on Vaio-Rex (My laptop).

As a photographer it is essential that I have a quality screen that is color calibrated; so that is one of the first things I did after getting everything set up.  After about 20 minutes the world of color was back in order and everything was looking good.  Everything until I opened Chrome to update my blog that is.  I quickly realized that my images in Chrome looked a lot lot different than my images in Bridge and Photoshop.  After a little research I found out that this wasn't a user error, but a problem with Chrome; Chrome doesn't color manage.  To make a long story short, I have made the switch back to Firefox as it provides the option of color managing.

All this to ensure that you, the client, gets the best images possible!
