Hi Robert I have looked at this and it is reacting this way because a correct CMYK colorspace profile has not been embedded into the jpeg file. LiveCode, therefore, has no idea how to interpret the colors and handles them in an almost raw state oversaturating them. Adding the closest profile to its natural state helps, in this instance, US Web Coated (SWOP) v2.
I've attached another source jpg to test with which has this embedded profile. http://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=20316 Sean Cole *Pi Digital Productions Ltd* 'Don't try to think outside the box.
