Thread: irfanview is changing the colour

  1. #1

    Default irfanview is changing the colour


    I am working on a Project for an artist and have to downsize lots of photos, so i found irfanview that can do a whole batch with one click, instead of downsizing each foto (there are about 400 photos so,...)

    Now i tried it and without any colour changing settings it will change the colour dramatically. I tried several colour changing setting after that, but i dont get the right (original) colour.

    I cant upload the images, because its too big and if i make it smaller the colour is already changed and I cant show the difference.

    Is there something like "original colour preserve" - I just need the fotos to be a little bit smaller, not to change the original colour

    Can anyone help? That would be so awesome and preserve lots of time for me

    What image format are you using?

    Are the colors right, when you just open the picture in IrfanView?

    Are the colors right, when you manually resize the picture and save?

    Perhaps upload an original sample to, Dropbox or some similar service (that does not change images in any way), so we don't have to guess. Could be a colour profile issue.

    Make sure, that you have Colour management enabled in Settings.

    Be well!
