Exporting Issues
« on: January 07, 2008, 12:07:28 PM »

I am having an issue that when I  export from LR I lose quality; details:
I import my photos make all necessary exposure corrections and then apply punch and portrait , everything looks great in LR. I then export to either tiff or jpg full quality and it is as if I never processed at all. Pictures are flat and unsaturated. I have attached my export settings.
Thx

My question would be with what application are you viewing the images?  I wasn't able to open your attachment/link.

According to your settings you are exporting into a prophoto space - unless you are using a color mgmt aware app, like PS  to view, they are going to look pretty flat.  If you are using PS, is it confgured to respect embedded profile on open?

When you export, you have the option of 3 color spaces; ProPhoto RGB, AdobeRGB (98), or sRGB.  You want to select the most appropriate space.  If you were sending the file to be printed or published, you would want the embedded space to be what the printer/publisher specifies.  If you are exporting for "general" viewing, then you would want to choose sRGB.



hope this helps . . .-John

Are you referring to how the prints look in photoshop?  Or is the quality drop when you view them in an application other than LR/PS?

my target was the web so I did change my settings to sRGB and my images did improve from being flat however the color shift of the skin tones was horrid, magenta overload!


I also tried exporting to a tiff to batch edit in PS, add some punch and sharpening actions and then save for the web. Had the same problems with color shift.

I think I need some advice on a good workflow plan- I look at everyone else images on the web and they are great my lack clarity and are not vivid. Granted I am not a professional yet but my pictures are not as bad as they look on the web.

Thanks
