I don't know why but on this site the colors really do not load when adding a post the colors are horrible compared to the actual photo I try to add. This happen to anyone else I Know it's not a calibration thing as my other photo site does not have this issue

It sounds like you might be shooting in Adobe RGB, if posted in that color space, many browsers will yield dull images. If this is what's happening, convert the images you post to sRGB color space.

Hope this helps.

I use PS and have never had lightroom, so I can't help there. In PS, I use, in the edit menu, convert to profile.

Lightroom and Photoshop both have sRGB. I have no issue with color on this forum. Lightroom it is under preferences and then change the colorspace.

Yes, that's always happened with mine on this forum, too. Same with the gardening forums. Everywhere else I've posted has been fine. It's not really a big deal to me, but I have been curious about it.

Which format do you export the photos as out of lightroom and or photoshop. seems I am exporting as srgb and I have the colors dropping on this site only. The current autumn shot is so flat even if I tweeked and boosted the colors it's way off.

That's just strange. I'm converting from Adobe RGB to sRGB and saving to jpg format, which is what I upload, and they seem to look just fine. I'm using a calibrated monitor. Your shots do look rather dead, low contrast and saturation and I did wonder. They would have a lot more votes if they looked right!

The reverse seems to have been the issue here. I was converting to srgb which is the first photo below. The colors just come out flat. But you got me experimenting with the formats and it seems that here the Adobe 1998 is what kept it colors coming onto the site which is the second photo below.
Thanks for the help . I would be willing to put money it's the cable company and how they have their formats set up
