Hi. I am losing reds when I export in both PS and LR.  My color space is definitely in sRGB, so that is not the solution and that's all I am able to find as a suggestion in the searches. 

 

Please help me figure this out!!

 

I edit in ACR now, because LR was giving me this issue, but now PS is as well.  It appears to add a green cast to my images, but I think it's actually just stripping out the reds.  Any ideas?  Thanks!

 

I have NOT changed any settings, but I'll paste a screengrab of my color settings below.

Where are you viewing the exported images? If it is in a non colour managed application - ignore it.

Converting to sRGB is not enough. You need two more things to see the file correctly:

  • you need to embed the sRGB profile. Export will not do that by default, you need to check the box.
  • you need to view the exported file in a color managed viewer/web browser. Windows "Photos" is not color managed and can not be trusted.

 

If it still doesn't look right, you probably have a defective monitor profile. This is the other end of the color management chain. If you're not using a calibrator to make the monitor profile, you're probably getting profiles from the monitor/laptop manufacturer, distributed through Windows Update. These profiles are very often bad in different ways and this is a common problem.

 

The fix is a calibrator. If you don't have one, use sRGB for now.
