Color saturation on Sketch exports

8 years ago from

When I export in Sketch, the colors become more saturated. Has anyone else encountered this and is there a solution? I came across the below which describes the same issue with some image examples:

    When I've ran into this issue I found out that pushing all exported images to imageOptim helped solve the color discrepancies.

    Can you describe your computer and display setup? I was having major issues with any color stuff when using a Macbook Air and an external monitor (Dell Pro or the Apple Cinema Display) a few years back.

    Is it only happening in Sketch?

      Yeah appears to be a sketch only issue. Apparently they are aware and are working on it.

      I have a MacBook Air with the default color display settings.

    Reached out to the guys at Sketch. They are aware and are working on it, though sounds like a tricky one. https://twitter.com/sketchapp/status/642082377490038784

    This is usually a monitor calibration issue that designers who have calibrated for print run into.

    Sketch doesn't color manage the way that apps like Photoshop do, so you should return your system's color profile to default or change it to sRGB when working in Sketch.

    Think about it: when you work on screen design, shouldn't your color settings be optimized for the screen?
