stolen contrast, by TE
Hey, You!

I just posted a picture and was surprised to find it really bleak compared to the version on my computer... I then uploaded it onto my website to see if it was a problem with my preview program or whether it was TE...

I'll let you compare the same picture uploaded onto <a href="" target="blank">TE</a> and onto <a href="" target="blank">my website</a>.

Does anyone have any explanation, any solution?
Thank You very much in advance!

Looks exactly the same to me.

the only difference I could see is the filesize but not that a huge difference. you can post a max of 200kb here on TE.

No difference ! There is no color management on a website !

Am I the only to see that Trekearth version is less contrasted on the building?
and btw, there is some kind of color management with IE, which says that you can chose any kind of color space providing its sRGB. (no Adobe98!)

I've loaded both image on two different tabs in Firefox and been switching from one tab to the other many time and couldn't see no difference at all.

Yes, with with my main monitor (photo use) at home I don't see any difference now while this was pretty obvious on the other one (boring stuff use) at work... hence it might also be a monitor calibration problem...

Although, I've noticed that files size in byte are different. 96Kb on TE and 139Kb for the one on the other site.

Re: stolen contrast, by TE
hmmm... interesting...

It's actually the first time this happens to me and I haven't changed any settings at all... it's really rather odd!
How could there be a calibration problem that seems apparent now when it hadn't been before? Or could it be that something has changed somewhere?

I normally use Safari, but the same problem appears on Firefox!
... what to do? What to do?

Oh, and since you saw no difference at all on your main monitor, which of the versions appeared? The darker or the lighter version?

Thanks a bunch for having checked it out on both monitors!
All the best,
