[filmscanners] Thumbnails looking flat

I'm in the process of building image galleries for my soon-to-come up web
site and stumbled in some issue related to image presentation online.
For each image I create thumbnails at 180xXX or XXx180 and the actual
picture linked to it at resolution close to 800x600.
I use Save for Web option of PS7.
I paid attention that the thumbnails (and perhaps the images linked to them)
look quite flat in terms of colors and contrast on the screen despite of
their good looking originally
(TIFF or JEPG in PS7).
The originals are scanned in Adobe RGB 98 space and their copies intended
for the web are converted to sRGB just prior to Save for Web operation.
Both thumbnails and the actual images are saved as JPEGs.
Any ideas for the reasons for that dullness ?

I visited several sites offering quality image galleries and even thumbnails
there are popping into eyes with impressive colors, saturation and contrast,
however they are saved as GIF files instead of JPEGs. Does it have something
to do with the issue ?
