Topic: Admin please help - Simpleviewer color loss issues
I am working on a photography web site.
When i view the image in photoshop it has some really deep colors, however when i load the image in simpleviewer it seems like its loosing a bit of the red color channel?
has anyone heard of this?
when my customer told me that the picture looked washed out i thought they must be wrong, however when i installed photoshop and looked at the pictures that they took in photoshop (which is the program they use in their photography studio on a mac) i saw the same thing. the red color channel is lower or something, but the images definantly look washed out in comparison.
i think it might have something to do with the browser and operating system, however they have another site and when they log onto it with their mac and look at the photo's they dont look washed out. i use dreamweaver and windows for design, and apache, php 5.0 w/ gd library and imagemagick on the server, and for the website i use Drupal with a custom template design and simpleviewer for the gallery.
i am not sure where the change is taking place, i thought it could be on the server when the image is uploaded however my customer tells me that when they go to view the image on the site gallery instead of using the flash gallery component, the image looks fine, its only when they go to the flash gallery that there is an issue with color loss.
i thought it might be flash itself however their other web site uses flash and there is no color loss on there, so is there something in the simpleviewer code that is affecting the image colors? maybe the resize function?
any help would be greatly appreciated, i have spent a week on this image issue and need to finish up this project.
i really like simpleviewer and i will continue to recommend its purchase to my customers when i design a site for them that requires a gallery.
