My output colour and sharpness is different when I'm exporting out of Lightroom.
I am using .tiff, no resizing, sRGB. I have tried output sharpening but that doesn't do anything. Tried viewing in windows default viewer and picasa.
See my example below:
Have you calibrated/profiled your monitor?
The difference might be in the apps, some are color-managed, some not; obviously the same image will look different if one si color managed and the other not. Try enabling color management in picasa.
Place your Export Menu in a screen shot please.
If the colour is looking ok when you export other than sRGB I suggest your monitor profile is corrupted most likely.

It is a small file you have exported and you are zooming a lot I guess. However why don't you try some export sharpening? It is ther for a reason and I use it every export. In Lightroom the only place to check sharpening accurately is in the Develop Module and at 1:1 zoom.
I uploaded my dng, can you please try and export it and see what I mean? The export is just less sharp and I've tried all settings :-S
Yep, the kakapo is cool and I live about 20 minutes from Pukaha Mt Bruce our national bird centre!!
Now with standar export sharpening I cannot tell any real difference at all but have no idea whay you have your settings as they are - way OTT for me!!
I've uploaded my versions here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/t9ge3tuw7i6djs6/OIYt2ANh6h
What you’re seeing is the inaccurate sharpening estimate in Develop when the image is viewed at something less than 1:1, where Fit and Fill are the most oversharpened estimates due to the inaccurate resampling the LR uses for speed purposes.
Notice that Dennis posted his screenshots at a whole-number zoom level of 1:3 which is closer. It is the fractional zoom ratios that Fit and Fill generate that are the problem.
To estimate sharpening you should be using 1:1 only.
I'm back with another example.
I have uploaded the .DNG that I worked one, the original RAW and my JPEG output.
The export feature seems to just add noise, whether I use TIFF or JPEG, it's so annoying because it's enough to throw the image off. Yes I did uncompressed TIFF and 100% JPEG and no resizing on sRGB.
The DNG linked above is the same as the first one uploaded not the same as the Cr2 or jpeg unless I'm doing something wrong.
Having said that you are really over using the Detail panel IMHO I guess as the jpeg has a painterly effect. Part of this will be that the sensor seems ver noist for ISO500 and that will be due to the size in part. Small Camera, small sensor. Also the lens is not optimum either so the resolving power isn't the best too.
I am not seeing any difference with settings I would use.
Apologies. DNG is here
Okay Thank you for all your help.
This is my original raw - https://mega.co.nz/#!UosmEY4Q!VFYvYjMgVc56ohEumi70zYTDsjCNzrs0fYXlNdLc 0ts
This is my edited dng - https://mega.co.nz/#!Qhlj1KLZ!eu63R_g1i7HIghGvnOFdK0Xa80S86gv_lCJblFzJ 0B8
I think lightroom is dumb, you have to develop the dng and reapply the sharpening again.
Have the DNG now thanks and with your settings you can see the artifacts already appearing. So any jpeg will introduce more..
Your settings are extreme and at times cross purpose.
What are you trying to achieve with/from the file ??
