Exporting Images from PS (Wrong!)

    When I crop images (s: body_bg.png) and export… their are different than the real Mockup: color and resolutions. Any idea what is happening?

    I’m not particularly sure what you’re doing.

    Are you going File > Save for Web > PNG-24?

    I think you need to change either your color profiles or/and your proof setup.

    Color profiles change the way we interpret the colors. For web images we don’t need that.
    :arrow: Go to Edit > Color settings > change "Settings" to Monitor RGB.

    The proof setup is the way we see the outcome of the image. For example if you’re designing for print you’ll want the proof setup as a CMYK instead of RGB. To make shure no colors are being skewed for web images we need to change that as well.
    :arrow: Go to View > Proof setup > change to "Monitor RGB".

    Good luck
