Liightroom Classic 7.3 problems with exporting and working in Photoshop


May 28, 2012
Lightroom Experience
Lightroom Version
Classic 7.3
Operating System
macOS 10.13 High Sierra
I am discovering 2 problems with the new LR Classic 7.3 that I haven't heard mentioned anywhere, and am curious if anyone else is having these problems as well.

The first is exporting to JPG. Of course, my clients all want JPGs. But when I export from A Nikon NEF that's been edited in LR Classic 7.3, to a JPG, the JPG is decidedly darker, with less contrast when compared side by side with the NEF. Maybe 1/2 stop or so darker.

The second problem I'm seeing is when I apply one of the new profiles, then take the image into Photoshop. Once in Photoshop, the colors tend to warm up considerably. This is most noticeable in night time cityscapes, where the middle- to background city lights are cool to cool-white in LR, but when the file is opened in PS, they take on a definite warmer tone. In addition, in those shots, I tend to lose contrast, as the darker areas suddenly brighten.

Is anyone else having these problems?
