    Default Online photo gallery looks washed out

    Uploaded some photo on flickr. The color seems washed out when compared to the original file but looks ok on the orignal file. e.g. below

    because the color profile is not sRGB

    change it by gg to photoshop, Edit > Convert to Profile

    choose sRGB

    Actually note that there seems to be a difference when viewed with firefox and safari.

    try to see if flickr is causing the colour problem or firefox.

    if you convert to sRGB correctly, both should looked the same.

    if you're using Mac(i assume u r_),
    there is a difference in the image/photo when opened with Lightroom or Photoshop...

    Yup using mac. Therefore did a comparison using preview, safari and firefox. safari and preview seems comparable but with firefox and see a difference.

    if using Firefox 3, key in about:config in the address bar, then set the gfx.color_management.enabled option to true.
