A Little Lightroom Help, Please

Notice the green tint to the exported photo vs the original?

Notice the green tint to the exported photo vs the original?

I am honored to have a lot of very talented followers of  this blog, so I’m going to reach out to you and ask for some help.

I use Lightroom exclusively to export my CR2 files to JPG. However I’ve noticed lately (a few months now) that Lightroom is not exporting the files correctly. That is, there is a significant color variance between the original and the exported version.

I shoot exclusively in RAW and do my adjusting exclusively in Lightroom and a couple of LR Plugins, but I find that I have to nudge the tint of my photos +20 to the purple end in order for the exported version to look the same as my Lightroom original. In the photo above, for example, I’ve taken a screen capture of the original image as it appears in Lightroom (this is with no editing at all) and put it side-by-side with the exported JPG. You can see that the wall in the background is significantly more green, and the brown/yellow color under my cat’s neck is also tinted toward green.

I regularly calibrate my monitor with Spyder, and I have LR set up to use sRGB color space throughout my workflow (unless I’m missing a setting for it somewhere, but I don’t think so – I have it set in External Editing prefs and I have no export presets that affect color). So my question to all you enormously talented people out there:

How do I go about troubleshooting this color correction problem at this point. I’ve Googled as far as I can, but I haven’t found anything that addresses (successfully, at least) the problem I’m having.
