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.
I view them with the photo viewer that comes with Windows 7. I export them as JPG sRGB because that seems to be what photo print services such as Costco, Walgreens, etc, use when printing. If I print them out of LR they will be fine as I have color management pretty well under control. I was preparing to send them on a disk figuring that the recipient would either send them out for printing or view them from the disk. I was surprised with the slightly reddish cast when viewing them on the same display as I use for LR.

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.
My 2 monitors are Dell 27” 2711s wide gamut, calibrated with Spyder Elite. When I print using the Epson 3880 I can’t almost a perfect match screen to print.
I shot in the raw using the Canon 5D II, cropped a bit, and then exported. When I open with Windows 7 photo viewer instead of Nero everything is OK. I am assuming that Nero was the problem. I have set Windows 7 photo viewer to be the default for all JPGs.
Thank you for your suggestion.
