Hi! I’m needing help with something. This just started last week. After I download my photos from Lightroom 6 to my computer, they’re different. They’re dull and the color is off. What could be causing this? Something on my computer about to go out?

Thank you,

Hi Reneé,

I suggest that you look at this free eBook Lightroom 6 or earlier – Quick Start eBook. Lightroom works differently from most applications that are on common use reading this overview will help you understand how to best get started.

Of course keep asking any questions here and someone will do their best to help.
