Screenshots rendering differently in real-time and screenshot testing on MacOS Bigsur

I am taking screenshots of my website home page in real-time and screenshot testing on MacOS BigSur but the results are inconsistent. I don’t understand. Could you explain?



Hi Michael!

Hope you are doing well!

Actually, we have a different mechanism for taking screenshots in real-time and screenshot testing.

For real-time testing on Mac, we use real Mac Minis. Therefore the colors are more realistic just like on an actual device.

However, our screenshot testing is VM-based which doesn’t support color profiling, and therefore there is a discrepancy in color in screenshot testing which will be resolved once we have real Mac mini-based screenshots.

Hope that answers your questions!

Good day!
