Hello. Perhaps I am overlooking something obvious, but I am having problems maintaining consistent colors between materials specified in Sketchup and those created in image-editing software such as Photoshop.
Here’s a rundown of the issue:
- Apply a color to a face in Sketchup (for this example, I chose 0005_LightPink - whose RGB values are 255, 182, 193 respectively)
- Create a swatch (less than 1024 pixels x 1024 pixels) in Photoshop using the same RGB values
- Save as a JPEG (using default ICC profile: sRGB IECC1966-2.1)
- Import as image into Sketchup and place that surface next to the face with 0005_LightPink applied.
- The colors are not the same.
If I then take a screenshot and bring the two colors displayed in Sketchup back into Photoshop, neither one exactly matches the 255-182-193 RGB color values. I would expect this as Sketchup applies shading to surfaces, but the color created natively in Sketchup is not even close.
What colorspace does Sketchup use?
As a designer, I would like to have color-correct textures in Sketchup and not have to resort to the imprecise method of sampling pixels to “match” textures that should (in theory) have the same hexadecimal values.
Where am I going wrong?
