Hello everyone,

I'm new to MM and i uploaded 4 photos and they seem dark. But once i click on the actual image to view the color is fine.

Anyone know what the issue might be?

Not sure exactly - but it's best if you use sRGB as the colorspace and use a version of the picture that's exported with a long side no more than 800 pixels and a total size of less than 800k.  If MM has to downsize the image, information can be lost that makes it appear differently.

Save the file in sRGB before uploading, and you'll have the greatest visual compatibility. (Many browsers [finally] pay attention to profiles, but not all of them do, meaning that many viewers will see the image the same color as you're seeing the profile.)


From the Photography Forum FAQ

Why do my images look different on the web than they do in Photoshop or Lightroom? They come out flat, desaturated, or dull.

What can I do to make my images look good on ModelMayhem?
