export to CS2 difference
« on: August 02, 2007, 10:48:53 PM »

Hi,

I'm noticing subltle but noticable differences when exporting from Lightroom 1.1 to CS2. Exporting or send to Photoshop has the same result.

Can someone please try a quick test by exporting an image to Photoshop with strong saturated colours in the ProPhoto space and then drag it "over" the same open image in Lightroom (hide PS's palettes> hit tab). You can then see a claer difference!

Anyone with an answer?

(and yes they are both in the same colour space i.e. when opened in PS)

ProPhoto RGB in Photoshop.

Exported from LR same (ProPhoto RGB)

just to add, it's a decrease in saturation I'm seeing. As the colour space in PS and LR are the same and the file is the same, although "processed" into a tiff or psd (same result).

So I can't work out why there's a subtle drop in saturation.

ps. am I expecting too much? There is a sublte difference and it probably is highlighted when it's a "saturated" images.

Should an export to Photoshop, keeping the colour space (ProPhoto RGB) be an "EXACT" duplicate of the settings in Lightroom?

Check if Desaturate Monitor Colors in Color Settings is enabled.

YES! that's it! I forgot we set that to better simulate the Z3100 prints.
Notko...well done!

Thanks for everyone's replies too. Mystery solved.
