coloring issues and poll: please read and answer

I've been having a few issues with GIMP since I upgraded my system and the program I use to make icons (GIMP). In GIMP my coloring is perfect but when I save it onto my desktop, it's a lot redder than it is in my program. This has never been a problem for me. I'm using the same computer (Macbook) and the same internet service (Safari) that I have for the last two years. I posted about it on gimp_users but the offered solutions haven't worked for me. A friend of mine told me she sees no difference in the images so I thought I'd post them here along with a poll to help me figure out if the issue is just me or the program itself.

This is what I see in GIMP....

and this is what I see when I save it....

Do you see a difference in the images?

No

Yes

Kinda
5(16.7%)


Please comment with the type of computer you use (Mac or otherwise) and the internet provider you're viewing on (Safari or otherwise). I've never had this problem on my Macbook before so any help would be appreciated.

I know I actually don't post here anymore and that it's completely off-topic but it's quite urgent...

I NEED HELP!

...with my German homework. We have to make a survey on the question:

What is luck/happiness?
How do you personally define luck/happiness?
(the problem is: the German word "Glück" means both luck and happiness so define whichever you like...although I think my teacher meant happiness...)

You could do me a huuuuge favour by filling out the following (very short) form (all comments are screened).



. I don't need a real definition, just your personal opinion and it may be very short.
. None of your date/answers will be published & you stay anonymous
. You may also answer in (Swiss)German or French (if you feel more comfortable in any of these)

Thank You!

So this batch is ridiculously small and plain, but I'm going to go ahead and post anyways since I don't know when I'll make more. I tried out some new coloring styles but I don't reallly like them (excluding the Say Anything ones) but maybe you guys will.

moving

hey people,
I want to tell you that I am moving to another community I recently opened called sweetcase.

I hope you won't be mad at me or something and you don't have to understand but only accept my decision because I have my reasons.

1) I always wanted to have a community for both my artworks and goodies. And now that I am also making screencaps I needed a place for them anyway. So I am finally putting it all together in one community.

2) First I posted my artwork at caughtmoments and then here at pineapple_icons and it was a great time.
I really learned a lot and always loved to see what the other makers come up with but I have the feeling that I need something on my own.
I just think that I am ready to start from 0 and I really want to feel that rush of happiness everytime someone joins my community only because of my stuff.

I hope to see some of you guys around there at
sweetcase sweetcase sweetcase

Goodbye for now
Sonja

P.S. I will leave this community in a few days but you are very welcome to keep the layout *g*
