Color Changes on export
I was wondering if someone could help me with exporting/color issue. I am trying to export an image that has gold gradient in it as well as a goldish-looking parchment type background, and in gimp, it looks as I'd like to look, but when I export (tried .png and jpg), the image becomes a slightly green looking. I've tried adjusting the color balance, the levels, brightness contrast, hue and saturation, but I cant get the goldish-yellow appearance on export as it seems in gimp.

help Sad

RE: Color Changes on export
Thanks for the reply!
Are you talking about the color management stuff under my display properties for my monitor display under my computer's control panel? Or the color management options in gimps preferences?
Looking at gimps preferences for the color mgnt, these are what the 1st 4 settings look like:
Mode of operation: "Color managed display"
RGB: "None"
CMYK: "None"
Monitor Profile: "None"

There's also an unchecked box that says: "Try to use the system monitor profile"

Should I mess with these settings or my display settings with my monitor?

Thanks again!
