I'm noticing that all of my exported JPGs are darker than the edited RAW file.

I edit the file in LR, export as a full-quality JPG with no changes on export except the required JPG compression.

When I open the JPG file, the image is darker than the edited LR image. I can look at the edited RAW image in LR, and open the JPG in a window beside it, ON THE SAME MONITOR AT THE SAME TIME, and the difference is obvious. It's most noticeable in skin tones, and of course in shadow detail.

I can adjust the exposure on the RAW file in LR by about -0.3, and then it matches the exported JPG.

This is VERY frustrating!

Is anyone else seeing this problem?
