    Looking at your images with an ICC enabled app makes a big difference. If the same JPG appears differently then its almost certainly that. Try looking at this web page...

    http://www.color.org/version4html.xalter

    and see what you get. If you get correct image then look at your images with this browser. Or else save the four images from the top pic and open with your image viewer and see what you get.

    Windows Image Viewer does a pretty good job of viewing them ok. I would imagine that PS would too. PS being the pro app that it is has more options to save ICC profiles into images. Its likely to have more control and thus more chance that you will get it wrong. On the other hand the feeble apps will not even take into account the ICC then it will show it wrong.

    For the record. If your not sure what ICC to use then either a) dont put one it or else b) (and this is more true if sending the pic to an external printer) put in the Adobe sRGB type.

    Wow, I learned something new. I opened it with the Windows Picture viewer, and it looks normal. When I use Irfanview (free program) it looks off, and when I look at it in Firefox, it looks off. I will have to figure out how to save it correctly.

    Well, I saved it "for web", and saved as JPEG high, and it worked. Here is what it should look like. I hope that what you see isn't bright green land and dark blue water, but it looks right for me.

    Didn't check to see if this was mentioned earlier, but it appears your forest texture is 'tiling'. Might want to look at that.

    Ditto on the tiling forest. It looks like you have lines running straight up/down and left/right in them.

    But no, the green isn't bright (like the green in the first jpeg you attached). It's a slightly washed-out muted green (nice). It looks very good, IMO, except for that strange forest issue.
    I think, therefore I am a nerd.

    Until you pointed it out, I hadn't really noticed the tiling issue. I was so focused on other areas that I wasn't paying attention. Now I will have to fix that!

    Have you tried un-checking the ICC-profile checkbox when saving as JPG? Also follow RedRobes advices above regarding when to use a profile.
