Not having used a Photo hosting site for photos I care about before, I have a couple questions.
I have decided to use Zenfolio as my site to host my slowly developing portfolio, with the idea that I will be involved in e-commerce as well. Just not right now, as I have not proofed my photos with any print companies nor have I fully familiarized myself with the various products and pricing.
So, I want my images to look as good on my monitor when I view them in Zenfolio, as they do on my desktop after Post. Possible? I know when I post photos here on FM, or even drop them into an email (not even having sent them yet) they look altered. Sharpening changes, increase of vignetting, color shifts or loss of HSL.
Is it necessary or possible to create a preset in LR4 for exporting to my Zenfolio account and have my images optimized for that site? Do I have to upload, download, change, upload, re-download, change more and guess at what needs to be done?
If I work on a copy of the image in sRGB, then wouldn't/shouldn't the image load and display in Zenfolio the way I sent it out? If I am normally working in Adobe ProPhoto color space, do I need to convert a copy of the file, and then adjust it to my satisfaction before sending? Would one expect noticeable change in the image after the conversion?
Am I making too much of this?
