    I've noticed there's a difference in what I see on the net and what I save on my computer. When I save an image it takes on a slightly darker and orange tint. Is there a setting I can make to make the pictures I save the same as the original on the internet.

    Compare these two pictures

    From the net

    Well, they look the same on this post but they sure look different on my computer. Hmmm, I'll still take any suggestions.

    thanks

    What program are you using to view them?
    Right click the image that you saved, choose 'open with', 'internet explorer'.
    Does it look any different?

    Thanks Moper for the response. If I had been thinking I would have mentioned the program I am using.

    I am using "Windows Photo Gallery". I did what you said and opened it with Internet Explorer and it looks the same, however, I viewed it in Irfanview and it looks brighter like the original. Sooooo....

    Is there any way to adjust the brightness and hue in Windows Photo Gallery. I occasionally use Irfanview but I like Windows Photo Gallery because for me, it's a little more handy for quick viewing.

    Again, I really appreciate your response. At least now, I know where the problem is and using Irfanview is a good work around when really needed.

    I think you could get used to Irfanview, especially now, since it has Paint and Clone options. Also, the Thumbnail viewer.
