When you use a color profile different than sRGB, the color of your images do not look right when opened in a non color managed application, like a web browser.
A solution is to convert your images to sRGB before you use Save For Web.
But doing it manually can be tedious…
In Photoshop CS2, here comes the Scripts Event Manager to the rescue!
Its function: if a peculiar event happens, it will automatically run an action or a script.
Jeff Tranberry of tranberry.com has created a handy script solution to the above problem.
Visit the sRGBs4w script solution tutorial for details.
