Probably your color management gone wrong. Make sure your image is converted to sRGB before posting it online (or it will view wrong in the browser - as it has no color management).

In Photoshop to convert to any profile, go to Edit->Convert to profile... you can also use the Save-for-web function from the menu and it will by default convert it to sRGB and compress it more efficiently than the regular "save as...".

Re: After severe water damage, years later

I find I use the scratch remover the most. clone in cs4 is really much better in some ways, and not in other ways, just not familiar with it enough.
