Paul,
A "sticky" tip maybe ?.....

A lot of images are uploaded using Adobe RGB as the colour space. This setting does not display well on the web and uploaders should instead use sRGB for the best web based results.
If you use Photoshop then you can set your colour working space to sRGB and get Photoshop to convert any incoming images that are not using that colour space. If you use other processing software you should also attempt to change to sRGB however I am only familiar with Photoshop.
Here's how to do it....

You can set sRGB in PS (Your working colour profile) and also ask it to warn you if there is a mismatch with your PS profile. You can then select an option to convert the incoming image to your working profile (sRGB)

Go to "Edit" .... "Colour settings" in PS. You will see this set of commands.

Set what I illustrate here (note especially the tick in the "ask when opening" box by "Profile mismatches") and when you open an image it will probably tell you that there is a profile mismatch. Like this..

Select the option that I have outlined in red.

You will now be working and saving using sRGB.
