Photoshop color shift when doing save for web

What we’re doing here won’t make your colors look the same on all monitors or machines. Macs will display lighter (by default, at least), and monitors themselves will experience crazy color shifts based on age and settings. Reassure yourself: This is not your fault. The key is to calibrate your monitor as close to the center as possible, use Proof Colors (we’ll get to that) to make sure details aren’t getting blown out on other platforms, and be prepared to gently explain to clients why your green looks like aqua on their friend’s 1992 Trinitron.
