I know this has been discussed all over the web for about a million times, but for all the advice I've read, I can't seem to get this right.
I've got a Photoshop file in which I've built what I want a website to look like. Now I want to move several parts of that file to Flash as PNG-files with transparency. The colorspace or profile (they're actually using both terms in one dialog, just to confuse noobs like me ;P) for this file is sRGB IECnumbersnstuff.
When I choose Save for Web, already it's looking quite a bit lighter and less saturated then the original file. I can choose "Use document color profile" so that the optimized version looks a lot better, but it's still slightly lighter then the original and it doesn't effect the outcome in Flash.
And when I just go ahead and export the file to PNG and import that into Flash, the image gets even lighter and a bit less saturated. I've uploaded a screendump at http://www.eurovoice.nl/n/colors.png so you can have a look at it yourself.
I'm using a MacBook Pro running OSX 10.4.8 and I've tried this on CS2 and the beta of CS3. CS3 is even a bit funkier: when you choose "Use document color profile" in Save for web the optimized version is almost fully transparent save for a few purple lines. But hey, that's why it's a beta, right?
Any suggestions are very welcome. Thanks in advance!
