I've been noticing that Lightroom exports my photos as significantly darker (I'd say 1 stop, maybe) than I'd edited them to look in Develop. It's got to the point that I have to go back and edit every picture again after exporting since they're coming out so dark. Is this normal? Do I have to start compensating? It doesn't happen in all photographs, I've noticed, but still.

How are you viewing the jpgs? If you import one into LR, how does it look there?

I tried one out that had tons of grey tones from clouds and the raw looks definitely slightly brighter.

Is this normal?

No.

Did a quick comparison, hitting CmdE on an image in LR4. Opened in PSCS6 not quite identical, yet very close. Only difference was that LR4 clipped shadows too much.

That's not as it should be either (LR3 displays way, way closer to PSCS6) so maybe there's a bug in LR4, or it's caused by the choice Adobe made to try to do a perceptual rendering for screen in LR. (Silly choice IMO)

I'm filing a bug report.

Still, your image should not appear "about a stop darker".
