Do you want to know why your WordPress images look faded? Are you wondering how you can add image sliders with full bright colors on your site? You may find that the photos uploaded in WordPress are different from the originally saved image slides.

When you create an image slider on your site and add images directly from your camera or internet, you may notice that the jpeg changes color when uploaded in WordPress.
One image uploaded will create multiple other image sizes, so the image size that you’ll choose for your slide might loose its sharpness. In that case your slides will look dull and desaturated. However, you can fix these common WordPress image issues.
To fix the image desaturation issue in WordPress, you’ll need to follow these 3 steps:
- Step 1. Open your image in Photoshop
- Step 2. Go to save for web settings and convert image to sRGB
- Step 3. Edit color settings for standards
