Under exposed prints
Mar 5, 2012

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this or if this topic has already been discussed, if so sorry!!!

I recently started to use Lightroom for PP, prior this this I was using iPhoto. After PP my photos look fabulous on my monitor (Apple iMac) in Lightroom and as desk top photo, however when my photos come back from Costco Printing Center they appear much darker and lacking color punch. What am I doing wrong? Is my monitor too bright for proper evaluation? I would like my prints to represent what I create in Lightroom. I have had both Costco and Apple do my prints and I get the same results……Basically underexposed prints.

I PP in raw and export files as Jpegs.

Thanks Dave
