    Why does my uploaded picture look so much worse than on my computer?

    I have been playing with Capture NX all day and had what I thought was a good edit of a picture that was terrible out of the camera. I saved as a jpg and uploaded to flickr and smugmug, but it looks terrible on both sites. It looks much better on my computer. What did I do?

    Does the JPG file look different (outside of NX) on your PC than on flickr/smug?

    Can you do a screen capture of each and post them? I've never had problems with the photo sites I use, but they do process them (so to speak) when they cut them up into different sized images.

    how to I put a screen shot on here?

    I changed the color mode to II (Adobe). Would that effect how it looks online?

    see how much we need him?!?!

    and to answer a question I missed, yes it looks better on the pc outside of capture than online. I just emailed the screen shot to a friend and she agrees. Just have to figure out how to get the screen shot here...

    Adobe color space is diffferent than SRGB color space and you would definately notice a difference. If your picture looks flat and dull in comparison to others I would say that is the issue.

    It does look flat online, but not on my computer which is what confuses me. I'll check out that link and post the examples. Thanks!

    If you are posting on the internet you need to use sRGB. Also I think the default save option for jpg's with NX is not the highest quality, make sure you change it when you save. Also set your NX, monitor, printer to sRGB color. Adobe is great for high quality prints, but if you are like me more of your photos go on the internet.
