consistent colour for web in photo shop

I am trying to get some images to match my photoshop images.

I am saving the images as jpg's (quality 6-7) but they look flat and a slight colour shift in the browser compared to the image in Pshop.

any ideas anyone?

I have already tried Imageready and the colours looks even worse!

What are the images of? Photographs or drawings/vector? What do you think the color depth is, millions?

I almost always boost the saturation before saving an image. That one stpe gives a lot of extra pop on screen, especially if an image has been through any CMYK color space. And I do use ImageReady because the compression is much better.

The thing is, with the varying graphics cards, monitors, color depths, O/S and browsers that are in use (and who knows what other variables, like AOL's compression!) the web is just not the place for getting too particular about precise color.

the images have been (flatbed) scanned from transparencies.

color depth is millions

i have over-added saturation which does make them look richer and closer to what I am aiming for.

thanks for the input guys.:)
