I uploaded some files to DT for the first time in a while yesterday and they appear in revolting dull flat colours - most unappetising for food. Is there an issue with the colour space on DT, it reminds me of the complaints when Alamy were using Adobe RGB as the space, which doesn't look good on screens with a limited gamut.  Here's one of the files on DT https://www.dreamstime.com/earning_det.php?imageid=146243515
The original looks fine on my screen and on Shutterstock (unfortunately, its not gone live there yet so I can't show that) but it looks bad on DT and, I now notice, on Deposit Photos as well.
Can anybody tell me what's happening and what I can do to solve the problem?

Hi what color space are you saving the jpegs in?

I had a similar problem when Lightroom for some reason started applying ProPhotoRGB unprompted and the colors looks off.

Likewise RGB.

Use SRGB they should come out fine.

Thanks, Sammy. I see it's RGB color - but Photoshop CC doesn't seem to be offering sRGB for some reason. I don't know what they've done.

PS - google has just pointed me  to the edit/convert to profile function which does offer sRGB  but I hope I don't have to do that with every file from now on, it would be a ridiculous waste of time.

Yup, the  colour space changes fix the problem. https://www.dreamstime.com/earning_det.php?imageid=146285897   Hopefully I've managed to set the default now after some more fiddling with the controls.
I much preferred the old stand-alone versions of PS, where there weren't the "updates" that mess with established settings
