I suspect maybe, possibly, the color saturation and highlights being lost thing has something to do with my mac. And I just can’t post a picture here until this problem is solved because what appears on the blog will not be indicitave of the work I put into each photograph.
Should I just buy a new computer (remember my hard drive crashed so I’m essentially working off a blank shell of a computer)? A Dell? As far as I’m concerned every computer is going to explode within a year anyway, so I might as well just get a Dell full of amenities (big hard drive, tons of ram, etc) that will still be cheaper than the cheapest Macbook. I miss the PC world, honestly. What would you do?

Hi Internet (photography bloggers particularly),
I really need your help. About half the time I take a photograph, photoshop it, then post it to the web, the detail and colors are totally washed out. It’s as if I didn’t photoshop it at all.
I already tried: assigning the sRGB color profile. I already tried save for web on high quality settings. What Am I Missing?!
Oh, I will add that the color change is most prominent when I use photomatix to make an HDR photo. The HDR qualities are completely lost when I open the photograph in firefox. I use a mac, and I’m using the trial version of photoshop (I know, don’t judge). I shoot with a Canon Rebel xsi.
Can someone please tell me what I’m missing? I’d be so very grateful. Until then I’m too embarrassed to put up any of my pictures because let’s face it without photoshop they’re pretty crappy.

This has a delightful old feeling to it. The kid’s outfit kind of tricks me into thinking its one of those full body suits of the early 20th century. All he needs is an adorable little sailor hat. Speaking of which, how do you feel about hat girl in the right corner? Necessary or distracting?
P.S. (I sat up straight and this photo looked so washed out, but when I sat back in my chair and slouched it looked the way I meant it to–darker, more shadows). So the lesson today is, utilize bad posture while viewing these photos)

Hm. It looks a little dead here. It’s way more vibrant in Lightroom. I guess it’s because the poor darling photograph when through like 500 reincarnations– RAW to TIFF to PNG to JPG. Well um I guess I’m semi-proud but the fruits of my 3 hour labor aren’t really apparent in this particular blog post.
Btw, my computer is angry with me and is playing the passive aggressive game. It’s obviously mad because I didn’t buy apple care for it. How do you get your HDR images onto the intarwebs? As soon as I open the JPG in firefox all the HDR qualities are gone; SO weird
