how come my image looks different opened in GIMP than it does on my desktop?
beginner question here.

how come when i simply open an image in GIMP it seems a very tiny bit lighter and less saturated than if i just view it on my desktop with a simple program like Preview?

here's a screenshot i took for proof. the same exact file opened in GIMP with nothing done to it and in Preview. the one in GIMP looks very slightly lighter.
