Image looks washed upon resizing

For one content type we noticed that images after resizing look washed out. 

At first we blamed resizing tool, but also, we noticed, that not resized image (original), had same “washed” feeling if it was opened using Firefox or Chrome. Funny, but image was displayed correctly in IE.

Little check and we found that problem is with image color profiles - ICC. Both Firefox and Chrome wouldn't show proper set of colors if profile is different from sRGB. Needless to say this set of images was with CMYK color profile.
