How Filestage handles color profiles in image file🎨

To ensure that your image files display correctly on desktop and mobile devices, we need to transcode the uploaded files. In terms of color, we can handle both RGB and CMYK color profiles.

How to export files for maximum color accuracy

For maximum color accuracy, it's recommended to export image files with the sRGB color profile. If your file contains CMYK elements or you're unsure of the color profiles used, converting your file to sRGB is the best solution.

Exporting the sRGB color profile in Photoshop:

When you have an image in Photoshop that you'd like to be reviewed on Filestage, you will want to ensure color accuracy. To do this, you will want to export your images in the sRGB IEC61966-2.1 color profile:

  1. Open your image in Photoshop

  2. Select Edit and then click Convert to Profile

  3. Click on the destination space dropdown box

  4. Select the sRGB IEC61966-2.1 option

  5. Click OK

  6. Export your image and upload it to Filestage.
