Anyone else having trouble exporting images with the same editing finish my Lightroom shows...when I export with 100% Quality Full size it comes out to sharp and does not have that glossy finish, if I try not sharpening with export it comes out too blurry...essentially I want it to export lookin exactly like the screen does but no matter how many ways I change the export setting it wont look as good as my edit in Lightroom and I really want give my client the good quality edit look? Is anybody else noticing this if not HELP!

Hi @victoriab1014 

 

Thank you for reaching out and sharing the screenshots

Which version of Lightroom are you using? Can you tell us the export settings that are used?

Please tell us when you see this issue and if it happens with all the files.

 

We're here to help, just need some info.

Hello, thank you for your help...I exported the one from the screenshot with Full Size, 100% Quality Settings, no added sharpening because when I tried using matte or glossy it completely changes the color of her lips and sharpens it too much not giving the editing finish in my edit. This was the closest exporting setting I could get to the actual edit and its still not right. I operated from Lightroom 6.2 version. Let me know if you need anymore info. and how I can fix it so I am not giving my client bad images for printing. Thank you!

When you want it to look exactly the same you have to NOT export at 100% quality and full size. The problem is that at full size, the image is far too large for the display and the application you are using has to scale it down to your display resolution. Every app does this differently and the results are unpredictable. This happens because there is no single agreed upon algorithm tht is used to scale images and it is unlikley other apps do the same thing as Lightroom. If you want the image to look very close to what you see in Lightroom, you want to export to a much smaller size that is more reasonable for the display. Typically something like 1500 pixels on the long side but it depends on your display resolution what makes sense. Select screen sharpening (the other options are for printing) and color space typically should be sRGB or display P3.  Quality should be 85% to 95% or so. There is no point to go higher. 85% is almost always indistinguishable from the original.
