I am new to the post-processing world and have run into an issue I can't solve no matter how many articles I read. I have seen posts addressing color calibration, but these two images are so far off, there must be something else wrong. Professionals who create images and export them for clients to view in the wild certainly cannot expect this much difference...

 

Thanks for any pointers!

The issue (fixed by Adobe support) was a corrupted import. Deleting and re-importing the tif file solved the issue.

Did you even try correcting monitor calibration? Sometimes the calibration can be wayyyy off. 

 

Also, please state the application (not Lightroom) that you are using to look at the image, and please show us screen captures of your Export dialog box. 

 

Also, export quality settings will usually have only a trivial impact on colors, it's irrelevant here.

I did go through the color correction on the Mac's Display settings, and whether I use the new color map, the old one, the sRGB one, it changes slightly but never gets close to the LR version. If that's not the right way, please tell me how; I haven't seen anything beyond that in all the Googling I've done. I also haven't seen anything regarding a collop corrected viewer for the Mac, though both Preview (shown) and Chrome give the same over-sepia'd, washed out look. 

 

Export screen attached.

The LR image is heavily edited, mostly as a learning curve with no significant objective though I liked the b&w with a touch of sepia look, as well as more contrast. I then exported it at 100% to a jpeg, and opened it in Preview on the Mac. I also tried Chrome with the same results. I know it looks like a scan - that's the problem 🙂
