Re: Why are my printed photos dark and professional photos from my computer are not

It sounds like you are editing in Adobe RGB and then sending files with no profile. When you send with no profile, the printer normally assumes it is sRGB. Since AdobeRGB is wider, the resulting colors will look under saturated and off.

To fix the problem, always include the profile when sending off  the files and save using sRGB unless you know the printer prefers something else.
