    Marni, I don't see any appreciable difference in any of them. Do you still have the RAW file? If you do, would you send it to me?

    Dale, I don't see any difference either. I just wanted to be sure it wasn't an issue with Photoshop CS4. I've also ruled out using a url instead of posting through OI. I can send you the raw file. If you want to process it, post it here and send me a copy I can see if any of that makes a difference. It should look pretty much the same in all of the browsers. I understand that I have no control over how other people calibrate their monitors, but from browser to browser it should be consistent. The image on my computer looks like the plant I photographed. That is my goal. On Safari, it looks the right. On Firefox and Opera it is washed out. I have looked at a number of my web pages on all three browsers and there is little to know difference, so it isn't a simple matter of settings on one or the other browsers. But when I put the lycaste image in a web page and viewed that Safari was good, the other two were washed out.

    One more thing, Dale, would you post the original I sent you the other day and see if it looks the same when you post it.

    Marni, you only sent me lycaste.trifoliata.jpg. Send me the flower close-up and I'll post it without manipulation. Right now, I'm gonna go listen to my pillow.

    My pillow wasn't saying anything I hadn't heard before.

    The first image is your lycaste.trifoliata.3flwrs.jpg uploaded without manipulation. The second is the converted RAW file IMG_3739.CR2 processed and converted to a jpeg in Capture One 4.6 and finished in PhotoShop Elements 6.0.

    Thanks, Dale, my eyes are bleary and I'm getting sick of looking at this image. My image that you posted is different in Safari and Firefox. Your version seems to be the same on both. I don't want to think about the implications of that.

    So with clear eyes I have gone back and looked at these. Dale, your image is less intense on Firefox than the image you sent me or the way it views Safari. I looked at some of your other images and they are different also. I have now gone and looked at some other people's images to compare across the two browsers. Some have no loss of intensity, other people's do. Unless I can think of an objective way to compare the images, I think I'll try to let go of this. If anyone has any input or ideas I'm interested. And next time, I'll make sure I remember to run unsharp mask in Photoshop.
