Differenence in Color When Exporting Photos

Apr 15, 2012 7:12 PM

I have taken a series of photos using Canon 5D Mark II using Raw.   After processing in LR 4 I want to send them to a family member on disk using sRGB so that they can print them.  I notice that after the export the exported photos, as displayed on the screen have a warmer, reddish cast which is quite different from the screen display of the RAW photos in LR 4.


Can anyone help me sort this out.

    How do you view them outside Lightroom?


    Perhaps it's color management?

    that is what most think... beside that they are good drivers. 


    i think you may have a bad monitor profile.


    there are many threads about problems caused by bad monitor profiles it in this forum.




    have you tried a good image viewer thast supports colormanagement?

    im not sure (i dont use it) but i think the win7 viewer is not colormanaged.


    another possible source for issues... do you have a wide gamut monitor by any chance?

    Windows 7 stock Photo Viewer IS color managed.


    How do you calibrate your display?


    The progile indeed may have some problems, that Lightroom doesn't like. You may try to remove the profile, restart computer and check if there's any difference between LR and Photo viewer.
