Color Profile issues in Photoshop : image editing
I am having problems saving pictures from my camera into .jpg's without them turning red. 

When opening the camera's raw format, I assign the SRGB color profile and edit the file. Upon saving it and viewing it in my browser, it turns to be a shade redder. Is there some reason why the color profile isn't being read when I am saving? Or is there something else I am completely missing? 

There are a couple of issues with that advice. First, if the browser in question is not color managed, then any changes in profile will be useless anyway. Second, and far more important, is that proof setups are meant to give an approximation of how the image will reproduce on selected output devices and/or medias. Using MonitorRGB will do nothing to assist in getting high-quality hard copy output, and will actually hinder the process.

Overview of Today ' s GIMP Tutorial
In today's tutorial, let's edit one of the photos from the Goose series used in the GIMP Overview article.

The purpose of today's tutorial is:

(a) to introduce people that never have used an image or photo-editing program to image-editing and photo-editing software basics,

(b) to introduce people that never have used The GIMP to GIMP basics,

(c) and to help Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop Elements users migrate to the GIMP.

Thus the focus of today's how-to article is on the basics of using GIMP's cropping, scaling, brightness adjustment, and contrast adjustment tools. You will learn how to use these tools by editing a digital photograph.

If you have a digital camera, the GIMP is an important tool that you should have in your digital darkroom. Please see About the Digital Darkroom in the right-hand sidebar.

The GIMP is included with many prominent GNU-Linux distributions. If you have a major GNU-Linux distribution such as Mandrake or SUSE, you likely already have the GIMP.

If you are an MS Windows user you might not already have the GIMP installed. The good news is that whichever of the above listed OSs you use; you can download and install the GIMP at no charge to you. Download links are in the Resources section at the end of this tutorial on page 4.
