I have read multiple forums and discussions on this topic, and still can't seem to come to a solution. I designed a cover for a booklet and was happy with the final result. I exported the file to a JPEG. Looked great. I then uploaded the file to Google Drive to share on social media. However, the color had drastically changed between the initial export and uploading to the web.
Here's what I have tried. I am a novice at Corel Draw and graphic design in general, so please keep things simple.
I read in this article that the problem was (as I understand it) the fact that the graphic was designed in CMYK, and the web uses sRGB, therefore, the colors aren't consistent. I followed these steps and it fixed nothing. http://product.corel.com/help/CorelDRAW/540227992/Main/EN/Documentation/wwhelp/wwhimpl/common/html/wwhelp.htm#href=CorelDRAW-Converting-Color-Profiles.html&single=true
I have tried to export as a PDF in the native color - still doesn't work.
I have checked the box during the export process that embeds the color profile into the final JPEG - still doesn't work.
I have put the JPEG directly onto my phone just to make sure Google Drive wasn't compressing it. Didn't fix it.
I've attached the problematic files - hopefully you can see the issue.
https://drive.google.com/file/d/103oywtsAN4BqQN74VKfPwf9vT6m-pEPg/view?usp=sharing - this is the original file that is the correct color
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1gm5C6itDdrkQzf62trDoY8jKyjVV98Yb/view?usp=sharing - I can't get the weird colored file to show up as this darker green color, but it prints off-colored to. I'm about to go nuts as I can't figure out why the color only changes when I upload the file to social media or Google Drive.
Please provide screen captures 9f your document and application color management settings.
Have you tried different color profiles when exporting to jpeg? I had a case where I had to use SWOP Coated, even though I don't normally use that profile and it wasn't the document or default profile, because for some reason it looked a lot better and closer to original.
Color management is a technology, you either use it correctly or incorrectly. In general leave the defaults alone, there are print and web defaults. Build your file in the correct color space, sRGB for web and office use.
If you want to do more then that buy a book or get trained.
I suspect in this case sRGB is probably the issue as that is commonly used for screens, not that I'm a big fan of it generally.
Unfortunately anything placed on the web that is not sRGB will suffer color instability. Browsers that support color management can be affected by forum, chat and other software that does not.
