Different colours

With my last two submissions to DA I realized that the colours that show in my PS are totally different from the ones online. And I mean "totally different".

Anyone knows how can I solve the problem?

dA uses some algorithms to scale/resize images into the dimensions of the website. It may look a bit different than on your computer.

Are you using a Mac? Did you save them as jpegs in sRGB?
Sounds like you do and didn't.

Yep, in general, images you're posting to the Internet should have no color profile, or sRGB. One quick fix is to go to Edit > Assign Profile, skip any warning you might receive, and select "Don't Color Manage This Document". Also, in Edit > Color Settings, pick "Monitor Color", which should turn off color management. Most browsers don't use color profiles, so they'll appear different than what Photoshop shows you if a profile is set.

You might want to consider profiling your monitor, or at least setting an appropriate "color temperature" for the lighting situation in your room.
