How much are you compressing the image? Do you get a pop up with a slider?

The issue happens when you save it.

Why are you saving as a jpg?
If you are printing, you need to know the color profile that the printer needs/want.
If you are posting on the web, you need to CONVERT (not ASSIGN) the color space

Image>convert to profile>sRGB in PS.

If you are displaying on web, you don't need more than 50% quality.
Anything more is wasted and the file is bigger.

Where are you viewing the image once compressed? If your not viewing them back in Photoshop and opening them in a viewer like the windows default viewer, the quality is going to go way down.

Using cs4. Usually make a background copy then 3-5 different layer adjustments then flatten image

from adobe camera raw or just jpeg? What is the colorspace you are working in on camera? do you NEED a wide gamut colorspace for a reason anywhere else?

Internet and printing for most purposes will require sRGB. It can be changed in camera, in Adobe Camera Raw to open in PS using sRGB or it can be converted as a part of your final process. It really depends upon what you need or want to work with.
I choose to work in sRGB from the beginning. Others prefer to work in a larger gamut colorspace and then convert at the end.
My personal theory is why work in it if you can't use it and if most monitors can't even see the wide gamut colorspace. You run the risk of clipping when you convert and if someone can screw something like that up? It'd be me.
Totally up to you where you make the switch.

Try this. In photoshop under Edit, Convert to profile, in the destination space choose IEC61966-2.1 and hit ok. Now save your photo...
