Exported pictures is way darker then in LR?

After I export an image where I'm happy with the edit it comes out much darker then it is in Lightroom? Not sure what I'm doing wrong, might be a rookiemisstake, I'm new to it.

Left is the image in Lightroom before export and right is after export..? I dont make any changes before exporting the image & I've tried to re-Install Lightroom aswell... Do I need to format my PC aswell? Feels a bit overkill..?

It's possible that you see a difference on your computer, but the images you posted display identically on my monitor.

Are you on Windows 10?

And are you using the Photos app to view the exported image? If not, what application are you using?

Reinstalling Lightroom or formatting your computer will not solve the problem.

As I see, both on my PC & smartphone the left one is slightly darker?

 

For example, details on her jacket becomes black in the center where the zip is.

Are you working from a calibrated PC?

Could you post a Histogram of the file in question Lightroom Classic?

Or are you using LRMobile?

I see what you mean, the dogs nose details is darker on the exported image.  I've beeen getting this a lot myself and wanted to ask the same question.  To be honest, the difference I'm having is a lot more severe.  My PC is calibrated, I export SRGB and side by side, the Lightroom image is a lot lighter than the resulting Jpeg

You still haven't told us what application you are using to view the exported image.

The Photos app is not color managed, and can not be expected to display correctly.

Phones are not color managed either.

Lightroom is color managed, and uses the monitor profile to display correct colors, provided that you have a correct and sound monitor profile.

 

Since no native Windows applications are color managed, you can either use Bridge to view exported images, or a third party color managed image viewer like  FastStone, free for personal use. You have to turn on color management in Settings, both check boxes must be checked.
