I took all the advice I could find on the help pages and set my view to monitor rgb, and my color settings are set to : North America web/internet.
I saved my photo as a jpeg and used the matte: none, option etc.. 
but still the photo is showing up with gray overtones...



You can see my default color settings here:

Maybe my defaults are set improperly?  Never changed them.  This was the default.

Hope this is an easy fix.  need to upload this webpage very soon.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

that looks more like there is an HTML element/css graying box... inspect the code and look for the background-image.

Found a background-color element that was affecting the image.
Thanks for the tip off.

the backgroundimage is the image I created.  Its simply a layer of background woodchip image, a shape layer with color and opaque set to 75%, and a text box layer on top of that.....
Would merging all the layers fix this issue?

I'm using this image as a feature image in my wordpress page.

File export as jpg instead of save as. Also I work in pro color profile.
