Hi everyone,
I have CS6 and when i am working on Photoshop the color is fine and everything shows up how i want. Although when i save the file to a .jpeg the color drastically darkens to a point all my lighter details are lost. I tried emailing the .jpeg and .psd to another computer in my house and it works fine on them.My color settings currently are set to North America General Purpose 2 with sRGB selected. Past this point i don't really know what to try, if anyone has any suggestions on how to resolve this issue fire away please.

Photoshop is a color managed application, and uses icc profiles to maintain color appearance over a broad range of scenarios. This includes both a document profile and a display profile.
Many other applications are not, and all bets are off there unless you take specific precautions. So the question is, what application are you viewing the saved jpegs in outside of Photoshop?
A screenshot showing the two side by side would help pinpoint the exact issue here.
