    Whenever I upload an image to, flickr, photobucket, facebook, or anywhere for that matter, my images look very washed out compared to the exact same jpeg on my computer. Is there a reason for this. I see other people here that have hosted images, and they are fine.

    Any thoughts?

    When saving an image for the web make sure you convert the colour profile to sRGB first.

    Yeah, after I posted this, I did some more looking around and found out that Firefox does some weird things with colours that IE or Safari does not. When I look at the same image in sRGB (or AdobeRGB for that matter), firefox washes out the colour a lot.

    Very strange.
