View Full Version : Too dark

10-24-2019, 01:14 PM
Ive been having issues since I started using LW2019
Main issue is that when i render the scene, all looks fine, great! I can save that as a tiff, jpeg, whatever...
I open the saved image and it is insanely dark, nowhere near what the render window showed me

Heres an example of the rendered image immediately after render in the render window in LW and then the saved image and you can clearly see the difference.

I simply cannot find what to do about this!

You're saving in Linear color space, so of course it'll look dark viewed in an image viewer program. You need to display it in a viewer which can apply appropriate display color space adjustment to the image. Best person to ask about all things LW Color Space is forum member "gerardstrata" aka Gerardo.

looking at the top bar, think you have something wrong in the colourspace, use the colourspace preset and set to srgb, looks like you have the save image set to linear but your render window is srgb

Yup, agreed. sRGB render saved out as linear.
