As Mark Chapman discovered through his tests any jpegs uploaded are converted to sRGB as necessary (from Adobe RGB say)and the colour profile is stripped off so it is probably best if you convert them to sRGB yourself before uploading. 


Yes, and subsequently confirmed by Alamy. Uploaded images are always converted by Alamy to sRGB and the profile is then stripped. If I recall correctly, testing also indicated Alamy also compress our images to around jpg quality level 8 (PS equivalent). I always make final tweaks in PS whilst working in 16 bit sRGB colour space before saving as 8 bit sRGB jpg quality level 10 to ensure histogram and image I saw are as close as possible to what the customer will see/receive.
