Posting looks different in different locations

This is probably a stupid question but I haven't been able to solve it. Thought I'd get some opinion from the experts.

I have a single RAW file. I open it in :

1. MAC Powerbook
2. PC

I edit the picture exactly the same way with exactly the same settings. They look almost the same on both my MAC and PC with the MAC looking a little more sharper (probably due the screen).

I post the pic up in Facebook / Flickr / Photobucket and the picture turns out totally different from what I edited! It's too dark or underexposed all of a sudden.

Any idea how to work around this? I don't use my photos for business but it's irritating when you want to share your 'master pieces' and it doesn't turn out that great in sharing sites.

Agree..if it's just the image brightness, then it's most likely your monitor. I use Spyder2Express to calibrate my display. There is a spyder3express now.



* If your images look washed out/pale, then it's another story. Most likely your color profile. If this is the case, then read up on it here.

What web browser and on which platform are you using to view them?
Not all web browsers deal with colour management in the same way.

Yah it's colour profile, just search for the forum for AdobeRGB, sRGB and other associated terms. It's a very complex subject.

not sure y u tried applying HDR... but the halo is from over doing it...
if u wanted to bring out the midrange, you could try the shadow/highlight function in PS or fill light in lightroom...
if not will require skillfull masking?
