When creating a web gallery in LR3 the colors (reds) are boosted. This is clearly when swifting between web and library. I now discovered that this only happens in the Flash Galleries, not in the simpler html galleries. This change in the Flash Gallery I find very annoying after having spend a lot of time on adjusting an image. How does this happen? I would like to have this fixed!!
Also: In the flash gallery all images have the same hight = images in protrait format are much smaller than those in landscape format. In the html gallery I can chose the number of pixels for the longest side = all images are equal size.
I would like to have this funktion in the flash gallery as well!
Best regards Bill Alsted

It's because the Flash gallery's SWF (the Flash file) isn't colour managed. To be so, the SWF would have to be ActionScript3 (the built-in one is AS2), and the visitor would have to be running Flash Player 10 to take advantage of CM. In any case, you'd only get good colour if the visitor is using a colour-managed monitor (assuming too that the visitor isn't using a Flash-hobbled device like an iPad).

Take a look at SlideShowPro for Lightroom for a better Flash gallery.

Maybe flash colour managment does not work on your system? Unless someone posts a better idea, I'd try to check whether the same colour differences can be observed using a different machine.

N.B., you mixed a feature request (size control in flash galleries) with a problem report. It is better to separate these into two posts of different nature.
