Lightroom color space question
Mar 25, 2007

A while ago I posted somewhere that I was having issues moving photos from Lightroom to Photoshop- colors, brightness and saturation always looked good at first and totally off when moved to CS. I was told it was just me. Now I was reading a review on Amazon for Lightroom and it says:

Lightroom uses the ProPhoto colorspace while most modern desktops are configured to use the sRGB colorspace.. Something I never bothered to get into because I just didn't feel that I needed to. The problem is that when you work in lightroom, you adjust the images by using what you see on screen. When you export the images though, they look completely different (either darker, less contrast, less vibrance or a number of other issues)

Are we the only 2 people who notice this? Did anyone else have this problem? How do you get around it. I liked Lightroom enough to get it- except for this stupid yet crucial issue. Why doesn't it work with the same color spaces as CS?

I think if I order one more lens my husband will leave me... God I'll miss that man... (Yes- it is a JOKE. I'm a big girl I can hang back. I CAN I CAN.)
