Hi there,
I'm uploading my headshot onto IMDB, but once it's uploaded, it loses so much colour (or color, if you're American!). From the warm colours it has on the original, it all becomes a bit 'greyer'. Can anyone help me out on this? Thank you

Someone else reported this a few months ago and that bluey tinge is familiar:

Can you post the original here as a comparison?

hi emperor, thank you so much for the reply!
i've tried uploading up here, and it does the same thing, even on this site.
this is a link to see the original picture in its actual color:

I can't see any difference.

What file format are you using?

it's a jpeg, and ye, to be honest i noticed it does the same thing when uploading onto that site as well. But less so: if you click my picture on the Spotlight site, to make it full size, you'll notice the difference between the one on IMDB and the one on Spotlight. In the original, that difference is much greater.
Thanks again by the way.

Try saving it as a PNG.

i tried with png too, but nothing. Once the photo is uploaded, it looks absolutely fine on the page where it asks me to put in the photographer credits, then when i do that, and i press ok/submit, it leads me onto the home photo page where it loses the contrast!
