Dark photos after Upload
Has anyone else had problems with pictures darkening when after uploading, at first I thought it was just Flickr, but then I uploaded to photobucket, and it was just as dark, here is the link.
It is mostly the red on the yield sign that is darkening. Any suggestions.
(P.S. Mitchell is my last name)

I have no idea WHY this happened, but I opened your image in photoshop and it looked fine... When I tried to save it, it looked just the way your online-version looks.
The following options enabled me to save it in the original way:
Under image -> mode change the type from RGB to CMYK; and afterwards back from CMYK to RGB.
Don't ask why, but it works
Maybe someone else can figure out the reasons... I guess something with the color palette fu*** up.
Ok here's the 'correct' way to adjust your photo:
In photoshop, choose "file -> save for web" as usual, now right-click right on the photo and select 'Use document color profile', and everything will be fine...
The previous mentioned method would just erase / overwrite the document's profile with default values.

Holy photo correction, Bat Man! Coke, I can't thank you enough for this excellent tip. I wasn't having trouble uploading to flickr, but when saving my images for the web they were darker than the original for some reason.
Not anymore thanks
no I never have that problem.....
