| p.1 #1 · How to PP for the lesser screens |
I view and edit my images on a wide gamut screen and just before i save the work to display in a web browser i convert to srgb. (original file is in argb or prophotorgb). Sometimes i notice a slight shift in colors, especially the reds. I know how it works and why it happens. But what i like to know is how can i get an srgb image that is best optimized for all sort of screens; even the crapier laptops or cheap lcds people have in their homes. I have a few laptops, like a sony vaio with a wide gamut screen. No problems there.
My macbook pro 17" also looks fine although it's just on the edge. When i look at the same image on my macbook air i can see lots of out of gamut areas especially in images with bright reds. By measurement i know that the gamut of the macbook air falls short to display the complete srg-colorspace.
Now my real question: How should i convert my images so that the out of gamut areas are less noticeable? Should i just reduce the saturation in the problem areas? is there any possibility to soft proof for less than srgb? Or am i doing something wrong?
