    RGB values change when saving as JPEG?

    LindseyEP

      So, I have a bit of a weird problem. I open my file (which has an embedded srgb color profile) in photoshop (my rgb values are 246/205/218). When I use the color picker, it confirms that my color is accurate. Then I save the file as a JPEG (using maximum-12, and baseline), also embedding the same srgb color profile into the photo (which is also my working space btw). Then when I reopen the JPEG file in photoshop, and use the color picker.... my srgb values are (246/205/219). The difference is so small that it doesn't make a huge difference, but why is this happening???? My PSD file has of course maintained the original rgb values.
