I did an export of an image from DNG to JPG in LR4. The JPG suddenly appears with a washed out look. It looks the same in Develop and Print modules also. It does the same even if I export to a TIFF. However, an export to "Original" is fine.

When I use Finder to check the photo, the preview of the image is fine. I also opened the image from Finder in Photoshop CS5 and it is fine there. Again, I opened the image in PSCS5 from LR4 with "Edit In" and again the image in Photoshop is fine. So this appears to be a view issue in LR4. I did not print out the washed out photo but I suspect it would print out as it appears in LR4.

I've done some other image exports from DNG to JPG with other images and they do not have this problem but those were black&white converted images. However, I did check doing an export of another color image with the same result as the problem image.

I have posted this in the Photoshop Lightroom forum with image examples. This really is a serious problem. I do not and did not have the problem in LR3.
