I tried save as..
Save for web with sRGB selected, the ICC profile adjusted
Proof Colors ticked
Working CMYK originally
8 bit

Why do my photos appear so over saturated when uploaded online? And even some previewer programs on my computer make them look nothing like they do when I save them.

I also messed with another setting I can't remember, but it's something I think called "In monitor color" or something and when I click that, everything looks over saturated IN photoshop, so I'm not sure how I can correct all of these settings from the get go?

Thanks!

Still not finding the correct solution from this... I worked from preview and everything I don't know what the issue is, I did internet ready and preview and everything and it's just coming out horribly over saturated.

If you say, convert from CMYK to Adobe RGB 98, do the colors look correct on your screen?
