    Lightroom > Photoshop and Preview way to dark

      Hi everyone,

       

      I know I must be doing something dumb, but cannot figure it out.

      My system:
      MacPro 3,1Apple 30" Cinema Displays (2) [Not calibrated]

      Lightroom CC 2015.12

      CameraRaw 9.12

       

      So in Lightroom, my image looks like this:

      When I use the "edit in Photoshop" feature from Lightroom, it looks like this:

      And finally, when I export the image as a jpg and open it in preview, it looks like this:

      I've tried using all of the various color spaces in the export feature, but they all look the same.

       

      I should also add that the image appears super dark in the thumbnail tray in Lightroom. When I open it, it sometimes appears dark for a moment and then switches to my edited image.

       

      Can anyone tell me what I'm missing?  Thanks!
