Stumped. Color-calibrated images print fine, show fine, but are redish online

Recently, I did a series of family thanksgiving portraits. When I uploaded them online (Google Photos) the skin tones had a redish hue added. Slight, but definite. Never saw this before, but maybe I never noticed it before, as for some people a slight red wouldn't be that obvious.

  • I work in RAW, process in sRGB/JPG for the web, ProPhotoRGB/TIFF for print.
  • I printed some samples, they look fine. I printed in both sRGB and ProPhotoRGB.
  • The correct color profile is identified by the image printing system (that is, when I load them, it recognizes the profile).
  • I thought, maybe, it was Google's algorithm adding "pop," so I opened the exported sRGB/JPG images directly into my browser (file:///...), and the skintones are definitely a touch redder. The images look the same in both Chrome and Firefox--a bit redder.
  • I use ArgyllCMS/DisplayGUI w/ColorMunki for monitor calibration, and ran it again. No change.

Caveats: I'm all Linux, and have been using the same workflow for years. AfterShotPro 3, GIMP 2.9, TurboPrint. Again, the prints are great (Epson p800, Canon  Pro100, the monitor images look great.

Thanks for any suggestions
