    Images look oversaturated on other devices after export

    andreac9902191

      Hello, total newbie here.

       

      I work on a windows desktop, Once I am happy with my edit and export my image, it saves it as JPEG and makes it look similar to my edited photo in lightroom. However, if I email it and/or open it in other devices (phone, tablet, laptop) it looks extremely saturated and simply WEIRD.

      I tried installing lightroom on my laptop (also windows) edited an image, exported and emailed. Same thing happened/.

       

      When I change the export settings to Adobe RGB 1998, the issue is solved, but the image quality decreases?

       

      thoughts?

       

      TIA

          IF another application isn't producing the same color appearance (specifically at 1:1 in Develop) then it's not color managed and that's why there is a mismatch. Saving as sRGB isn't a guarantee of a match without the other application being color managed:
