Image Posting Saturation Loss?

I just posted an image of my best friend ROYGBIV in another thread. I've always noticed stark saturation differences between what the image looks like in Digital Photo Professional (Canon software) or Photoshop compared to the result posted to Photobucket and displayed here. Any thoughts on how to combat this other than over-compensating saturation for web use?

To likely answer my own question, I shoot Adobe RGB (1998). I think this is where I am picking up discrepancy.

Here are two shots where this phenomenon is particularly noticeable:

This is an un-scientific over-saturation to compensate for the loss from RAW to JPEG to Photobucket. To keep things very simple, I used DPP with saturation +2 in the RAW editor to reflect what the origional image actually looks like in DPP. When I upload to Photobucket, the image is de-saturated to the top version.

Yep, Adobe RGB will do that. Convert to sRGB for any web posting.

Just to make sure I understand: You posted a random image with two different saturation settings in DPP? Because both images have AdobeRGB profile embedded...

In a non color managed browser, you will see the difference between your monitor profile and the images profile. If an image is AdobeRGB, and your monitor a "regular" (not wide gamut) one, that will result in a desaturated image...
