I've been reading articles, watching tutorials, and and changing settings all day trying to figure out Lightroom CC Exports. I have come to the conclusion to re-edit all of the photos using Apple.. I do not want to have to do this.. Any help is appreciated!

I am editing photos on an HP Microsoft Windows 10 desktop. When exporting photos to a drive, shared folder, or to a sharable link (both adobe and pixiset) the pictures appear just as they do in Lightroom on my desktop. When viewing the images on an Apple device the images appear to be dark and orange. I have tried to export both raw and JPG and have tried all of the export color settings. I have attempted to re-edit a few images (color playing) on the desktop and end up with the same results when viewing on an Apple device. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Lightroom.

Disclosure: These images are for a family member that I am in contact with every day. I am part of Facebook communities that will shame others for taking photos during the pandemic so PLEASE do not criticize me for taking pictures during these uncertain times. Just looking for help. Big thank you in advance!

Don't worry, you're among friends here. 

Are you viewing in the Lightroom app on your Apple device? Or something else? 

And if you visit the web link on the Apple device, are they also dark and orange?

The most likely suspect would be a corrupted monitor profile on your desktop, but extra info will help us narrow it down.

I have viewed the pictures in the Lightroom app, yes. When doing so this is where they look orange and dark.

If I visit the web link on the Apple device they are also dark and orange. 



Corrupted Monitor Profile? Are you referring to adding ICC Profile sRGB IEC61966-2.1?
