    Ok, here's the skinny. I use a Canon Digital Rebel XT and have it set on adobe RGB...hurray:D . I put the photos on the computer and the colors look dazzling...Great :D. I upload the photos to the internet to places like JPG and Flickr and the colors look really desaturated...:grumpy:.

    How do i fix this problem?! Does any body else have/had this problem in the past? I use Adobe Elements 4.0 for mac to edit my photos on occasion and it seems that when i remove the color profile, the same color changes apply, but when i assign the same profile, boom...bright beautiful colors. Hmmm...

    Convert any pictures that will be viewed using a web browser to sRGB.

    Are you converting to profile or are you assigning profile?
    If you are converting, post links to an unconverted image.
