I made a wallpaper for my computer... just have a couple problems

When the photo is up in adobe photoshop, everything looks amazing... i have a dark blue background, the pictures are clear and everything..

However, when i save it to my pictures folder, then set it as my wallpaper/background, the pictures are somewhat foggy, and the background is dark gray. Any help on how to fix this? i honestly have no clue what to do.

In which colour profile did you save the image? Did you save it in RGB or CMYK? What was the resolution of the image?

I fixed it! I changed it to RGB, and then i made a copy of the background, and deleted the locked background layer.

This fixed the fact that i had 2 backgrounds on there. One was not able to be seen, and was hidden, and gave the wallpaper a foggy look. Sounds weird but i fixed it.

Sorry I didn't get back earlier after you answered my questions.

And the reason is simple... Because CMYK is for printing purposes. RGB is for monitor use.
