Firefox

I've spent a lot of time and money making sure my images look right across a wide range of monitors and mediums. How is it that a different Web Browser screws that up?

The images look perfect in Safari but Firefox makes them look all brown. I'm not sure how they translate on PCs.

Check this out. I took a screen shot of the image in Firefox and put it next to the Safari image. What the heck?


So I guess what I'm saying is if you have a Mac, look at my blog in Safari. Haha.

I tend to have Firefox open for my Gmail, posting board stuff, and Safari open for Blog surfings, so phew, I've been looking at this in the right browser!

its all about ICC color profiles, sir. Safari supports Adobe RGB natively but none of the others do. You need to make sure you're editing and saving your images in the sRGB color profile space and it'll look the same across all browsers :)

Hi Michael,

I'm so glad I read your blog today (and the comments). I've always wondered about the difference in browsers too. Are you guys moving? Makenzie looks so big! And so beautiful! I can't believe she's turning 4 already. Tell Cindie I said HI. Take care!

Aaaah that explains why you gave me that random look when I tried to explain how your style looked! Good to know that info on saving everything into sRGB.

I know how you feel! It's extremely frustrating.
