That is normal. When zoomed out the preview image is based on compositing i.e. blending groups of pixels then displaying the result. When the image is flattened for export (or viewed at 100%) then every pixel is blended individually. On some images the difference is hardly noticeable but on those with fine noise it can make a big difference. 100% zoom is the accurate preview. Dave

Check both when viewed at 100% zoom (Ctrl+1). Now do they look the same?

yes when both zoomed to 100 the image is the exact same, except when you "fit to screen" the halftone effect on the jpeg is very different than the psd.

Hi there,

 

We're sorry about the export issue with Photoshop. 

Could you please share the version of Photoshop (Help > About Photoshop) and the version of  Windows on your computer? How are you exporting the file? Do you see this issue with other images or particularly this image?

 

In Photoshop, go to Edit > Convert to Profile > sRG. If you are using "Export As" or "Save For Web," just check the Convert to sRGB box.

You may try to reset Photoshop preferences back to defaults and check if that helps. Here's the article for the steps: https://adobe.ly/3ceal5t

Also, back up the existing Photoshop preferences if you have any custom brushes, actions, and workspace: https://adobe.ly/2vNz6FG

 

You can also check this discussion in our community: https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop-ecosystem-discussions/color-changes-when-saving-from-psd-to....

 

 

Let us know if this helps.

 

Thanks.

It's also worth noting that Jpeg compression can alter an image's appearance slightly.
