    Photoshop saving reds different

    I am working on a website and am creating a few custom images. I have a logo and some ribbons that have the color #ce3d45 in them. Whenever I export them they come out with #ee3a44!

    I've been using Photoshop a long time, and never have seen this? What is it and how do I fix?

    Thanks

    What file type are you saving them as, and is there any chance you're using less than 8 bits per color in the palette?

    Hard to guess when you've tried everything already...

    What are your color profile and color mode set to?

    I presume this is a source psd file, and you're trying to export it as a jpeg or png?

    Yeah, it’s most likely a color management issue. There is a nice article about it. I think the basic rule it to not use color management on images for the web (i. e. “Don’t color manage”) or set it to the monitor profile. This way you’ll get the same output for web export.

    What color space are you working in? Reds and yellows seem to be the worst.
    Sometimes working without a color space can give better results. I don't know why but it works. Also, what format are saving it in. Jpegs seem to be the worst offenders.
