When editing photos in Photoshop, they'll look fine but when uploaded look darker than when in the program. Photos on other sites are also looking too dark and a litte fuzzy, with not as much contrast as they should have.
Is this a problem with the photos themselves, or is it a monitor problem that needs adjusting?
I set up specific profiles for 4-color offset press output (which needs to be adjusted to display a little darker on-screen, judging from the way my business cards turned out!), a profile for the local copy shop's Docutech printer (conveniently downloaded from the Xerox website), and a profile specifically for web images (RGB output, with gamma set at 2.0... halfway between Mac default 1.8 and Windows default 2.2)
Really interesting things happen when I forget to use the proper one for my current project!
All that said, I could use some tips for getting a profile set up for truly consistent (as close as possible, anyhow) web display... How best to minimize effects from people's varying monitor settings?
It started with someone having a problem with their images because of AOL image compression, but I started noticing more and I'm seeing fuzzy dark stuff all over sites now :)

I just found out that people using AOL browsers have to turn off something with their image compression; it all looks different to them.
