My PNGs colours get washed out on export.

When I'm working in the PSD document, my colors appear vibrant and saturated. However, upon exporting, I notice that the glow, particularly around the letters, becomes washed out and turns white. I'd greatly appreciate any help or insights into why this might be happening.

Is there a chance a bunch of filter layers are being flattened and thus creating different effects?

After some testing, it turns out I was right. I had used a hue and saturation filter to change the color of the glow and overall project, and it seems that when exported, it, for some reason, creates a washed-out effect on the glow. I don't know why it does this, but it does. I recreated the glow to be on the top and did it with a brush and some effects rather than using filters. It came out exactly how it previewed in Photoshop. Thank you all for the help regardless. It's a little strange, but

Are you resizing the PNG?

Are you viewing at 100% ?

 

Is the sRGB profile embedded in the file, both in Photoshop and in the Export module?

 

When you say "in the PSD", is that as seen in Photoshop, or in the Export module preview?

I viewed the image at 100% in Photoshop, but it appears differently in Windows Photo Viewer. However, I doubt that would make a difference, since when I bring the exported PNG back into Photoshop, it still has that washed-out glow 😞

Do you have a medium to wide gamut monitor?

 

What happens when you view the PNG in a colour managed app like Photoshop or a modern web browser that supports ICC colour management?

I'm not sure, but again, I doubt it will matter since it displays completely fine in Photoshop and only shows the washed-out glow once exported. I'm going to check and do some testing with a copied PSD to see if I can somehow figure out what's causing this.

I've noticed that when flattening the glow and the hue filter, it becomes washed out. I assume that when exported and flattened, it leads to this issue. I'm going to try creating the glow without using filters, strictly brushes, to see if that will fix the issue when exporting.
