Can anyone help explain why my images are darker when posted to the web than how they appear in PS. They even seem to be darker in forum posts than they are in my portfolio. Is there a way to fix this? Any help is greatly appreciated.

What color profile are they in PS? I'm guessing maybe they are Adobe RGB and when you save them they are being converted to sRGB. You'll see quite a difference if this is the case. If they are Adobe RGB then convert them to sRGB before saving for web.

Just a thought, not sure if that's the case for you or not!

No it can be, I went through the same thing, when working is PS I was using colormatch profile, then when you saved out as a jpeg and looked at it using IE the brightness/contrast was very different. In fact I would have an image that I had edited, dodged the white background, then when I posted the picture you could see all the brush areas I had done and where I had missed things. I've found working in SRGB kept things a little closer and I use a adjustment layer cranked really bright to take a look at a final image and do any touchups I need before dropping the layer and saving the file out to make sure I've not left marks on the image. PS and IE display images very different. I think Hackman is the guy to explain technically why this is..

Yes I know [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
I said that for the "monitor setting" thing. The problem could not be with the monitor.
There are websafe colors. As I know the web can use only 256 colors perfectly. Your pics will degraded into this 256 colors, when you post them, or load them for the web, no matter how did you save them. Therefor you can see a much better quality in PS.
I think this could be the problem, but Im not sure. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

No I was wrong, there are 216 websafe (browsersafe) colors, you can check them here:
