    I know it has something to do with color space, is it possible to export without using a color space so it doesn't look terrible when I post them on the web :o

    definitely sounds like a srgb issue... Post one. Easy to tell.

    Try opening in PS, then assigning the photo Adobe colorspace, then converting to sRGB. :dunno:

    sense, this makes none

    LR is prophoto, so more gamut than you could ever display in print or web.
    If you go prophoto -> adobe -> back to prophoto when it goes back to LR -> srgb, you're not really accomplishing anything

    Wat.

    LR manipulates a photo in whatever color space you tell it to use, IIRC.

    If the pics are looking desaturated and "Adobe RGBish" then he should be able to open it in PS, *assign* the photo Adobe RGB (not convert to), then convert it to sRGB. That way if it IS Adobe it will be converted to sRGB. If it's already sRGB it won't do anything, of course.

    nope, you view them in prophoto, there is no option.

    the only option is on export, srgb or adobergb. adobergb will look desaturated on the web but fine in LR/PS, and even in some browsers that can read .icc's

    Right. I'm not disagreeing with you.

    What I'm saying is if the TS thinks the photos look desaturated and *might* be AdobeRGB, then he can open them in PS, assign them the Adobe RGB color space, then convert it to sRGB. If Adobe was the problem this should fix it.

    Or just make sure it's exporting to sRGB from LR.
