    Lightroom Previews Different (Worse) Than In Camera or in Windows Explorer

    liatfeller26

      I'm using Lightroom on a Windows 8.1 Computer. When I look at at image (JPEG or RAW - I shoot both) in Windows Explorer, it looks just fine. However, when I look at it in Lightroom, there is often a green blocky area/cast around hair or certain areas of light or skin. I know that sometimes the JPEG and RAW previews will differ slightly from each other, but I don't understand why the originals show up differently in different programs.

      Same Image in Lightroom (Look at the 'before')

      Is this an issue I can fix in Lightroom? Is it an issue with my photography or camera?

       

      I shot this image with my Nikon D5100 and the Nikkor AF-S 55-200mm VR Lens.
