    Default Loss of Color - Flickr upload

    Hi,
    Anybody has this problem of loss of photo color after uploading to Flickr. Is this normal or maybe I did something wrong during post processing ?

    Initial thanks for the insight.

    Hi, I am using sRGB. So I'm not sure what is the problem.
    THe photo looks saturated on my screen but once uploaded, it appear dull from Flickr.

    1) Your monitor may need to be calibrated.
    2) Your photo on Photoshop may look more saturated than on IE/Firefox.

    Any other experts willing to advise? I've not used Flickr before and so cant comment much beyond the two possible reasons.

    my photoshop displays pics more saturated than web viewing too, so you've got to know how to compensate

    Mine is the other way round. I found that flickr enhanced the contrast and colour of the images I uploaded.

    Cleanse your thoughts, not by the foods you eat.
