I have finally pulled the trigger and got the monthly subscription for the PS + Lightroom CC. Yesterday when exporting the photo from lightroom I noticed a huge color difference when viewed with the Photos app. The photo is shifted more to red and there is a huge visible difference with what I see in lightroom before export.
Opening with Windows Photo Viewer however renders the colors fine. However, if I set the photo as desktop background it goes back to the reddish color. It is somewhat annoying to have such a discrepancy across the apps.
I have Dell U3014 monitor that was calibrated off the factory and never had this issue before. I could invest into color calibration tool, but they are rather expensive and I'd like to understand better what would that help me with. Also not sure I understand how color calibrating monitor will solve the issue of the same image being rendered differently on the same monitor. My understanding is that color calibration calibrates the color on the monitor with the color that you would see on the print. (?)
I have also tried exporting the photo with the older version of lightroom and it has the same issue, so it's not the lightroom version per se, but I wonder if something in the Lighroom CC installation screwed something up.
Could you please help me understand what is the cause of this and how can one solve this problem?
