Photoshop cs 5.5 - Image resolution inside PS and outside

I will take an image and adjust the level to get it to look the way I want.  Save it as a jpeg or bmp and then when I double click the file - the associated image program opens it.  Every time the image looks darker than when I saved it in PS - why the difference?  Is there a setting in PS?

Open it via Windows Picture Viewer..

I did - that would be "the associated image program opens it" - does not matter which one it is.

If you have jpeg images that you have already saved, and when you open them they still look one way in photoshop and different in other programs, you most likely embedded a color space other than sRGB. You can do a "save as" or "Save For Web or Devices" and convert the space to sRGB and resave.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
