    I’m having some real issues, here; this time it’s with colors.

    I edit RAW images in Lightroom2, then do further edits and convert to JPEGs in Photoshop CS4.

    Lately, when I open my edits in anything other than LR2 or CS4, the colors are horrible, washed-out saturations with a green/yellow cast. This happens when I open an image in, say, Windows Picture Viewer, as an email attachment, or as a posting on the web.

    The colors within CS4 and LR2 are gorgeous; something happens when I take them out of there.

    This just started happening a couple of days ago. I don’t think I’ve changed any settings recently, and I haven’t installed any new software. I have a desktop and a laptop, and the problem is identical on either machine.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Jon

    Sounds like colour management hell. Are you sure you're exporting in sRGB?

    Ummmm....actually......no. :blushing:

    Somehow, somewhere that got switched. I changed to sRGB, and all is good.

    Thanks for nailing it, musicale
