Recently I have been noticing that my images appear too dark or underexposed in their appearance on Flickr, Facebook, this forum, my smart phone and tablets in particular. Yet on my home computer and monitors at work they look fine. My question is this: In Lightroom 5.7 under edit>preferences what are people's settings for external editing? I have the file format as a TIFF color space sRGB, 8 bits for bit depth and resolution 300. Compression is ZIP. I use these same settings for additional external editor option as well. If this is not the problem then when I export out of Lightroom perhaps the file setting is wrong in terms of color space. I export to my desktop as an Adobe RGB and not a sRGB or ProPhoto RGB. Is this a problem?
In Adobe Photoshop CC under edit >color settings I have selected these settings: Custom, working spaces RGB: Adobe RGB (1998). The other options are Monitor RGB data, Apple RGB, Color Match RGB, ProPhoto RGB, and sRBG IECG 61966-2.1. Under Color Management Policies I have the preserve embedded profiles selected for all 3 tabs.
Is this correct for processing RAW D810 files? I generally go Lightroom 5.7 to Photoshop CC then save JPEG to my desktop. Pretty frustrated as the images look flat, lacking contrast and are underexposed even in appearance 1~2 stops at times it looks like. I always thought Apple had the best monitors but my ipad mini renders my images from webpages the worst! Thanks for any input here. Frustrated...
PS my computer monitor has been calibrated to Photoshop so I have a feeling its a color space problem either in Photoshop or Lightroom..
