I went through this a couple of weeks ago:

In short, the problem is that Chrome is not color-managed, and makes a lousy guess at displaying the colors and tones in sRGB images created by Lightroom. It seems to display some sRGB images properly, but not all.

My solution (if you can call it that) was to switch back to Firefox.

Wow, you are right, I wish FF would be as fast as Chrome on my computer...

Export settings are fine.

Compare the images in LR and whatever other viewer you are using at 100%. They should be identical then. (Actually, the exported version will be sharper, since you set output sharpening "high")

Every software uses a different algorithm to downsize to fit the screen. Some do a good job, some not. If you compare the images at "fit window" size, what you see is not what you've got.

Thanks very much - this solved the problem that was driving me nuts. Turns out my default Windows 7 viewer for JPEG ("Windows Photo Viewer") very poorly displays my exported images. When my exported JPEGs are then imported into LR they look great.

Appreciate your post.

Hello,

Which software is the best photo viewer in your opinion? After export from Lightroom.
