Really frustrating issue going on. When I save a rendered image/video as any file format there's this super obvious color shift that occurs. It pulls down the saturation and boosts the brightness/highlights. The only solution I've found is to correct it via an image editor.

This seems to be the same issue as: color issue when save my render. But I am not very smart so idk what to make of the answer— if someone could give me a dummy walkthrough or explanation that would be soo helpful and appreciated.
I'm using Blender 2.92 on a MacBook Pro M1(I know, not ideal)

Rendered image is on the left and the saved image from render is on the right.

color shift

did you try to set "view transform" to standard?

    $\begingroup$ @saltyaf I've downloaded the file and the HDRI you used but I can't reproduce this error. Maybe because I'm running on Windows. My render looks exactly like the saved image - which looks like your saved image on the right. The only difference is I don't have that thick dark border on the top... I guess you should have a closer look on that link Chris provided in the previous comment. $\endgroup$ May 17, 2021 at 8:06

    $\begingroup$ Thanks it looks like it may be an Apple issue, ill try rendering on a PC and see what happens! $\endgroup$

I had the same issue and I think I figured it out! I opened the saved image in Photoshop, went to Edit > Assign Profile > Display (the last option).

This caused the image colors to look exactly as they look in the Blender Render viewer. Which is great if you are just going to be looking at the image on your Mac.

If you want to share it on the web it will not look the same, since the "display" color profile on a Mac has a wider range of colors than a web browser or PC is capable of, which I believe is sRGB.

So if the image is for sharing it makes sense to use the sRGB profile rather than Apple display if you want it to look the same across platforms.
