Default Uploading visually accurate design colors


I'm wondering if someone can give me some help on this issue. I have completed the majority of my designs and my logo in CorelDraw in Pantone colors. I will be taking pictures of the actual designs on the shirts and uploading those pictures, but also wanted to upload a close up of the design exported from CorelDraw. I knew that when exported and uploaded to the web that the colours were displayed in RGB but had no idea how vastly different they would look. I know CorelDraw gives you the RGB and CMYK equivalents, however even after converting, the image looks the same. This is a problem for my logo as well. Does anyone have any suggestions? Do I simply have to eyeball similar RGB colors and upload the designs in those colors that will look most similar when printed in Pantone on the shirts? Thank you in advance for your help

Default Re: Uploading visually accurate design colors

Getting accurate colours from a photo shoot is next to impossible without a professional setup and very experienced photographer and editor. Your images look different because you are going from Adobe RGB to 255 html colours for the web. The gamut gets reduced considerably.

An easier way is to work with t-shirt mock up templates if its a basic t-shirt style you are selling. Just over lay your design on the mock up and off you go. After saving for the web in photoshop, you will get really close to what the customer on the other end sees.
