I've noticed that my images look different when viewed in Photoshop and when uploaded to the forum. I twice tried uploading an image today and the image was too dark and looked awful with dead colours. I attached Nikon Adobe RGB, and Adobe RGB profiles. What is going on?

You need to convert your images to sRGB mode and make sure they look okay before saving them for web. That is the mode which is usde by browsers.
Well I've followed the advice here and elsewhere and still cannot get an image viewed in a browser to look like one viewed in Photoshop 6. I open an image in Photoshop, convert the image to sRGB, and then save it. Then I view the saved image in a browser and in PS and ... in the browser the image looks noticeably flatter.
FWIW I use a calibrated monitor with a profile loaded using the Spyder wotsit. (Hence when I look at a graduated black to white scale, I can see all of the separate blocks.) I use PS 6 with all colour management turned off.
Curiously not only does the image viewed in a browser not look the same - less saturated - but it also looks noticeably softer. It's as if the sharpening has been turned off.
Leif, try soft proofing for monitor RGB in PS. I do this to see what pictures will look like in web browsers. Sharpness shouldlook the same in whatever program the image is viewed so that is a strange problem.
Sorry! What is 'soft proofing for monitor RGB'. Thanks.
Sharpness can change because it is to do with creating contrast at boundaries, and if you change the contrast, you will change the perceived sharpness. That is my take on what is happening. As to why ...
