Apologies if this is off topic...
When editing photos i always need to bring sauration down so that things look pretty pale.. so that when i export sturation wil look right... more so with skin tones.
If i dont do this and make things how i want it to look as a final product then when i export sometimes people look way too orange or red.
Does this issue have anything to do with monitor calibration?
Ive never color calibrated my monitor, purchased about 9 months ago.. though its supposed to be pretty decent in color accuracy
It's possible you have two things going against you. One would be an uncalibrated monitor, the other would be color space conversion. Depending on the conversion method selected the other colors in an image will be shifted to maintain their relationship with other colors that had to be pulled back into gamut. In Photoshop you can proof the image in the desired output color gamut to ensure nothing is oversaturated. You can use the gamut warning to selectively desaturate only the parts of an image that are otherwise out of gamut, which will keep your other colors from shifting when you export.
