• Welcome to the Lightroom Queen Forums! We're a friendly bunch, so please feel free to register and join in the conversation. If you're not familiar with forums, you'll find step by step instructions on how to post your first thread under Help at the bottom of the page. You're also welcome to download our free Lightroom Quick Start eBooks and explore our other FAQ resources.
  • The May 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. There's a brand new slider called Texture, available across the whole family of apps. Lightroom Classic includes a new tool called Flat Field Correction. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has lots of big improvements including cloud trash, invitation-only web galleries, improved chromatic aberration removal and more. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes. You'll also notice the CC's have disappeared off the end of the names, so we've updated the forum names to match.
  • Are you ever disappointed with your photos? Do you get frustrated when you’re editing because you’ve been told to move certain sliders, but never been told WHY? Do you wish you could transform your photos without having to spend hours in front of the computer? In my new book, Adobe Lightroom CC - Edit Like a Pro, you’ll learn:
    • how to to analyze a photo like a pro, saving you hours of frustration.
    • WHY you might want to move specific sliders, instead of just following recipes.
    • what the sliders are doing behind the scenes.
    • how to use sliders together, instead of in isolation, so you can get the optimal result
    The book is based on the cloud-native Lightroom CC desktop and mobile apps, but the principles also apply to Lightroom 6 and Lightroom Classic. The sliders are arranged into slightly different panels, but there's an included PDF that shows you where to find them in Lightroom Classic/6.

I've just processed a wedding and exported my DNG files to RGB. All the histograms are somewhat different (DNG to JPGS) but some underexposed image are exporting and looking terrible. Below are 2 histograms of the same image exported (DNG and the other JPG). Why are these histograms so different? Both are screen captures in the develop module with 100% previews.

If I understand you correctly, you exported as ProPhotoRGB jpeg? That is not a good idea, because ProPhotoRGB is far too large for 8 bits. And it’s pretty pointless, because these are black & white images...

I also exported as sRGB. Same results. The JPG histogram is way off from DNG and image looks very bad. This image was adjusted +1.5 exposure but DNG looks fine just the exported JPG is bad.

Why are the adjustments different between the two images?

Because one is the adjusted original DNG, and the other one is the JPEG that was exported from it and then imported again. That makes sense.

The question is however if there are perhaps adjustments on the JPEG as well, that you do not see in the screenshot.
