    Other than the bottom picture taking a HELL OF a lot longer to load, I don't see any difference in the Thumbnails.

    So being the same image why is there a difference in saturation?

    Smaller file size = less information = poorer image quality = alot faster to load

    try clearing your cookies on your broswer and you can see how much faster flickr loads compared to the original on your site.

    It might be the the site. When I upload to devianart my images will appear desaturated on the site.

    I don't notice any difference in saturation or quality. I am using Firefox which has color management support, but I don't know if that really makes a difference.
