    why do files appear darker when attached to and viewed in emails than they
    do when prepared in PS?

  3. Because your email program isn't a graphics program?

    Because you're operating PS in a different colour profile than the rest of
    the computer world uses?

    Photoshop uses color management. It changes the color you see on your
    screen in order to compensate for your exact brand of color monitor and
    your working color profile. The idea behind doing this is the picture
    will look exactly the same on different brands of monitors.

    Other programs do not do color management.

    To see the picture the way it will look in other programs, use View ->
    Proof Setup -> Monitor RGB. To understand what is happening and why,
    read the chapter on "Color Management" in your manual.
