Hi all, I've recently realized that the colors on my Macbook Air's monitor and the colors on the external display connected to the monitor are different! The colors on the mac are more saturated, but are not the ones that I've intended it to be.
Both the images are viewed through Preview app. I've used Sip to pick colors from what Preview shows me. The screenshot of the artboard in Sketch shows the intended HEX value, while the one on the Air shows a saturated, incorrect HEX value!! Surprisingly, if the image is opened in a browser, it renders the color accurately. Also, if the .png file is viewed on an external monitor through the Preview app, it renders the intended HEX value. This led me to believe that there is a color profile inconsistency here, rather than just some glitch with the Preview app!
For this reason, I'm wary about sending my designs to a developer and ask them to pick colors. I just give them the HEX values for now.
Would like to know how to approach this problem of mine. If indeed the color profile is the problem, I was wondering what is the best color profile to use when doing design work (I'm interested purely in digital design and not print design).
Thanks in advance.
