Washed out colors on MacOS version #971

I've been using Snipaste for years now on Windows and recently moved to MacOS. Was happy that there was a beta. However, quickly realized that there is something wrong with how images are saved.

I put a side by side below... I have tried Monosnap, MacOS snipping tool, etc... they all keep the vibrant screen colors. For some reason Snipaste washes all the colors out, even though I have the quality set to 100. Unfortunately I can't use this for writing my tutorials when color is washed out.


Any ideas or settings that can be tweaked?

Thanks... just a little more helpful info.

Happens on both my iMac and Macbook Pro. Both are running 10.13.6 macOS High Sierra.

@brianleejackson It is duplicated with #865, and I have made a suggestion for that issue.
The problem happens because the image is assigned with a color profile of SRGB while your display panel supports P3. To correct this issue, please use system command sips to correct it. Quick Actions is a good choice to correct the wrongly assigned color profile, mine is attached here.
For detailed information, please check Apple Developer Color Management Workflows
