I just upgraded to a new computer that I've built, and along with that Lightroom 5.2. I imported my catalog from LR 4 onto this setup, and all of the images are coming in REALLY dark. This includes photographs that I'm exporting in now, as well as older photos. The odd thing is that when I export to JPG, the photos export pretty close to fine.

Things I have checked:
-Colorspace is set to sRGB on camera, LR export, and my monitors are set to the sRGB setting.
-No changes or presets are being applied to the images upon import.
-Camera calibration is set to 2012 (Current), a setting I had not changed or adjusted on previous versions of lightroom.

Any other ideas or things I am overlooking? Attached photograph is the image in LR 5.2, and then the exported version of this same image, exported to jpg on sRGB setting, and then opened with the windows photo viewer.

Windows 8, LR 5.2, ASUS monitors

Your help is appreciated.

Cancel this. Found the culprit. I had downloaded and installed DisplayFusion, and it had a conflicting calibration setting versus windows. Phew.

Well, there are different variables. The three most common I can think of:

1) Windows Photo Viewer and Lightroom have different "approaches" to processing images

2) Calibrating your monitor will help you get the best results in Lightroom

3) Maybe you have an Export preset you are using to brighten your photos?
