    It displays an image darker than it actually made it to be in photoshop. At first I thought it had to do with PS color preferences, but Opera displays the image fine.

    What color space did you work in, in PS, and how did you save it? Did you use the save for web command, or save it as a JPEG using the normal save?

    I think you had the color profile embedded into the jpg when you exported the image. And I think Safari uses them while other browsers don't. That's my guess.

    Yeah, I was thinking something along those lines too... even though it's limiting, you probably ought to be working in sRGB if you are not already doing so, so that this isn't an issue....

    What do you mean what color space? I changed the color preferences to monitor color or something along those lines..

    Photoshop can operate in multiple color spaces. For instance, if you operate in 8 bit color, for argument sake, you know that you get 256 colors. But that could mean a certain pallette of 256 colors, or it could mean 256 colors for just that picture, even if that means that your whole pallette gets taken up by shades of three or four colors, or it could even mean 256 shades of grey.

    So in order for a picture to appear the same on two different computers, they have to agree on how the colors are defined. That's what a color space is.

    sRGB is a color space that is supposed to be standardized for the web. It's a relatively limited space, but if you use it, your web images will look consistent from computer to computer. :)
