Hi you guys, I have been working professionally with Lightroom for a couple of years now, yesterday LR started to display my exported pictures much brighter than they actually are (around 1.5 - 2 + exposure!).
When I look at the image (jpeg) in Bridge or Photoshop they look normal / like they're supposed to.
I first suspected that something went wrong with the export, but since Bridge and PS display it right I ruled this out.
You can see that LR brightens them up in retrospect, they show up for a split second in their "right light", then get brightened.
Can anyone help me with that? What can I do to fix it?
Concerning my work flow: I do rough adjustments in LR, then export to PS, then save it as a tiff and then export it in LR to a folder as a jpeg.
Thanks in advance!
First of all confirm if you have the same color profile which you use in External Editing Preferences when the file is exported to Photoshop.
Also, sure when the export or import processes are running there are no presets running over the file which give you this result.
PS: I have seen many cases where auto tone on import was turned on.
Hi Mandhir and thanks so much for your help!
For some weird reason LR only did this in this one folder for my last commission (?), the other exports worked just fine.
I use the same color profile everywhere, but thanks for the tip!
No idea why it does that, I guess I will just save those files in this folder in PS and hope it will never happen again!
Have a great day!
