Please help me, When I save a JPEG on Photoshop it makes it shades darker than the actual picture, how can I correct this?

Use the save for web command. I've noticed the same thing - however, the save for web seems to save it a touch lighter than the regular save.

I figured it out, Lol, >=] Go to Images>Mode>Convert to profile, choose your monitor (If you know the name of it) and it'll solve the problem. >=]

Thats a very intresting way to go about it. Its almost as if you pretended you went back in time, put the filter on the camera at the begining of the photo so that
it would come out as it is now. Im kinda thrilled that you put this out, iv been playing with photoshop pretty seriously for a couple years and comming across the
image>adjust>;photo filter evaded me until a few months ago, were i was like hello, who are you, dont remember seeing you. I have started to read more material
on photography, every color has a particular temp in Kelvin, so not only can light set a certain move, and even shift/mute and applifiy gradant sections,
once can use filters to pitch shift the light to higher or lower tempts(like a prism!). Now you just helped me connect a bridge between color theory and temp.
Couldnt have come at a better time, thank you =-)

You're welcome. It's a rush to have that lightbulb light in in your head, isn't it? I don't get those moments too often - but when something clicks on and connections between ideas happen - it's a neat experience. This happened to me here. I got to playing with blur filters, and chose average, and then later something else was going in photoshop that helped me make that connection about opposite colors nuetralizing each other.

Agreed. What I like about the tuts is that they are easy to understand. Perhaps I'll make a tutorial or two of my own soon. Thanks again. :beer:
