I open a high res photo in photoshop, crop it and save it (sometimes I make it Low res, but often I don't touch the resolution). When I import the photo into facebook or constant contact or on my website, it looks super SOFT

If the exported image still looks ok before upload, but soft on the website, that's the website recompressing it after upload and not photoshop's fault. There may be a max file size or magic pixel dimensions that those sites prefer that won't trigger recompressing.
