Re: Photo looks different in different viewers?

Ok, I sussed it out... the photo looks bad in Internet Explorer 9 because it isn't handling the tagged profile optimally for accurate colour.

I downloaded Firefox and it looks much better. Basically firefox maps/converts the colours to your monitor profile so they look correct. If untagged, firefox assumes sRGB but also converts to your monitor profile. Internet explorer only assumes sRGB and displays them without accounting for your monitor profile or something like that.

Long and short, Firefox better for colour accuracy (I also tested Chrome but it also produced yucky colours). Safari untested.

Don't know if you'll be able to see it, but here's the photo anyway:
