Hi, I wonder if you could help me my images seem to lose some of their saturation on export and I have no idea why. 

 

Are there any settings I can check? It's driving me crazy. 

 

Thank you for your time.

What color space are you choosing when exporting? sRGB is the safe choice for on screen viewing.

In what application are you viewing the exported image?

Are you on Mac or Windows?

Unlike on Windows, all native software is color managed on a Mac, as far as I know. (I use Windows)

So Preview should display correctly.

When two color managed applications don't display identically, it's usually caused by a defective monitor profile.

Try setting the monitor profile to sRGB, as described here:

If that fixes the issue, it is recommended that you calibrate the monitor with a hardware calibrator.

This will also create and install a custom monitor profile that contains an accurate description of your monitor, ensuring that correct colors are displayed.

In the Lightroom Classic export dialog box, make sure that Color Space is set to sRGB.

 

What software are you using to view the images outside of Lightroom Classic?
