    An obviously large part of digital photography is uploading to the net into Flickr/Photobucket etc. What I want to know is how you all get such great quality onto the net, especially night pics.

    Everytime I upload, it desaturates and takes contrast away from my photo, so I have to compensate by bumping that up. Unfortunately, especially for night pictures, it makes them look quite bad :( .

    Like for example,

    There is a ton of compression artifacts around the lights, and it just looks terrible.

    Here it is from RAW to jpg, but it looks nothing like the original picture. Its washed out and bland.



    Am I using the wrong color mode? Or is there just a certain way to go about it?


    edit: I tried using Safari instead of Firefox, like the person in the above topic said and now the 1st picture looks insane. I guess it has something to do with "colorspace" whatever that means.

    You need to save and upload them in sRGB, not Adobe RGB or any other color space.
