Convert to sRGB profile for the web

I am quite often asked about issues concerning colour display on the web.  One of the most common problems is that the image is not displaying correctly because it does not have the proper profile assigned to it.  Here is how to solve that problem:

Before saving the image as a jpeg go to Edit>Convert to Profile and choose the sRGB colour space.  This is the lowest-common-denominator colour profile that assures that your im
age will work well for the web.  

You should also do this previous to using the "Save for Web" function as well.
