The online images may represent colours and shades which are different to the lot's actual colour and shades. Unlike a print catalogue there is no standardized colour profile to enable a constant visual representation for online media. In the absence of an industry certified media colour profile for viewing images online, each device whether it be an iPhone, Samsung, laptop, iPad, etc., will display the images to their own unique device setting, therefore the final visual result will always vary.
