This problem just will not go away.  One possible solution is to avoid the PNG format for your image and use GIF or JPEG if possible.  If neither one of those is an option, but your use is iOS only, try opening the image in Apple's ColorSync Utility, assign the image a Generic RGB profile and save the image. Reimport into LiveCode and it will hopefully match whatever colors you're using, but again, if it works it's a Mac/iOS solution only.

I've got a background graphics I'm trying to match to the background color of an image and it looks perfect on the desktop but when run in the simulator the image is quite a bit lighter. Is there  any Scott Rossi style trick... Tried setting the paintCompression to png to see if that made any difference.
