That is just the opposite of what happens to me. Quite often when I upload a pic to the web, whether it be RP or photobucket or whatever, the image viewed online looks a bit washed out compared to how it looks when viewed in photoshop. In fact, if I download a picture from the web and open it in photoshop, it looks MUCH richer in PS than how I see it on the web. I don't quite understand that and no one seems to have a logical answer as to why that happens. I see it like that on both of my computers, so I know it's not just an isolated thing on one computer & monitor.

Quite often when I upload a pic, after seeing it on the web, I have to go back to photoshop and darken it a little so it doesn't look so washed out. Kind of annoyance, but it's something I've gotten used to.
