Exposure changes when changing background colour!

Hi there!

I have a problem with my image exposure changing when I change the surrounding colour. 

So for example if I crop the image and hit "lights out" the image exposure will go up or down depending if the background/border is light or dark! This also happens if I soft proof, change the workspace border or export it to then view it with a white border.

It's a real pain as I can edit it to how I want it and then when i soft proof it or export it and view it with a white border its completely out and different. I then have to go back and adjust it, export it to see how it comes out and so on.

 

I'm using the most resent version of lightroom on windows 10pro. 

I bought a refurb PC to replace my last one and I admit the graphics card is old and not great if that's any help?

Many thanks, hope someone can help.

Is this an observation via your eyes, perception? Or does the exposure slider change?

"if I crop the image and hit "lights out" the image exposure will go up or down depending if the background/border is light or dark!"

 

Possibilities:

 

- Human perception of color and tonal range is affected by the bordering color.  

 

- Some displays have a dynamic movie mode that adjust the brightness of the display based on what's being shown. Check the display's manual and its on-screen display menu.

 

To verify it's not LR or the operating system that's doing this, make two screenshots, one with lights-out enabled and the other disabled.  Then crop the two screenshots identically and compare -- almost certainly they'll be identical.

Hi there, i have tried again tonight and its back to normal! I am going to look at the screen profiles and also the night mode on the PC. If it happens again i will do the screen shot to see. But i have to admit i think it was playing up as it was quite noticeable. 

Thanks for the reply, i will keep you posted 🙂
