Hey, I just made my own flickr account and uploaded some photos but when I review them on flickr they seem a lot brighter than the originals on my pc. Did anyone else had this experience ?

Never really noticed - Although perhaps something in the web browsers that do it.

Although I am not a fan of Safari's UI, it does have colour correction so that colours look the same on every screen (or as near the same as possible) but not sure if that would effect brightness.

I recommened looking at images in a few different browsers side by side to see if they make any difference to the brightness etc.

That or the image editing application you are using dims them down for some reason - but obviously its not just to make them darker - I've noticed lightroom do this, loads the image, and from the image as it says loading at the bottom, it changes settings, but the sliders don't actually move, leading me to believe that it is some type of correction process for certain image formats.

Bart, which app are you refering to when viewing the pics on your PC?

It could be an issue at the browser end as well. What browser are you using to view Flickr?
