I was working on a magazine. The client was a bit self-conscious when it came to their image in print.
Client: I know I’m a bit rosy, but when my headshot goes to print it always looks ridiculously red.
Me: I subtracted as much of the red as I could but it starts to get yellow and washed out if I remove any more.
Client: But the image appears fine on my screen, it’s just how it looks in print.
Me: Yes, that’s because screens and printers use different color profiles.
Client: But like, significantly redder.
Me: I can keep adjusting it but it will always look different on screen vs print.
What I would like to say: Sorry to break it to you, but you are that rosy… Please stop worrying about this nonsense and do your job.
