I have a PSD. Opening it or exporting it with GIMP displays the layer I'm interested in the colours I'd expect it to have. Exporting the layer from the PSD using PSDParse or Adobe Creative Cloud produces an image that looks "darker" in some software.

Any idea why this is happening? Which one is really the correct colouration.

Here is a PSD without the problem.

    The PSD in your first link has a colour space of "CHG_02_051117". If you converted it to sRGB then all your images would probably look the same. – Andrew Morton Oct 19 '16 at 17:52
  • That seems to work! Some questions about it though; Should I just use the default GIMP options to do that? Is it lossless? Do you know of a way to batch convert PSDs into sRGB PSDs? – Hiccup Oct 19 '16 at 18:44
  • I'm not familiar with GIMP, but I expect it has some sort of batch-procesing option. – Andrew Morton Oct 19 '16 at 20:34

The PSD in your first link has a colour space of "CHG_02_051117". If you converted it to sRGB then all your images would probably look the same.

If you have many images to process in GIMP, you can use GIMP batch mode.

There are many guides to colour management in Photoshop available by searching for "how to color manage in photoshop". The sRGB colour space is suitable for displaying on monitors - if the images are to be printed then some other colour space might be more suitable.
