Photoshop ignores adjustment layers when exporting?

Hello, 

I'm new to Photoshop, but I just finished my first project, just a simple little poster I made for myself. I used some adjustment layers for contrast, exposure, etc., but when exporting the picture, it seemed like all those layers were ignored? The picture and the colours did not look the same and I would just hugely appreciate if anyone could tell me if this can be fixed or if this is just how it is.

Thanks in advance!

Could you please post screenshots taken at View > 100% with the pertinent Panels (Layers, Channels, Options Bar, …) visible of the layered and the flattened image?

Hi, 

I'm not sure if this is exactly what you meant (like I said, I'm still a little bit of a noob about all of this), but as I was taking these screenshots I noticed that at 100% view the pictures actually look the same, which is kind of depressing because the png still does not look as bright and colourful when zoomed out, but I guess that's just how it is 😞

Photoshop uses cached previews for displaying adjustments faster. 

There used to be a method of avoiding that (by setting the Cache Level to 1) but a bug took care of that a while back … 

 

This can result in, especilly with noisy images, unreliable previews in Views other than 100%. 

The screenshots show the same layered image at 50% and 100%.
