I've been having a problem lately where the drawings/sketches that I export do not match the original drawings.
Allow me to explain:
I use Gimp where all files are saved using its native extension, .xcf, by default. After exporting any digital paintings, etc. to .png and opening the exported file in Gimp, everything looks the same--completely identical. However, when I open the exported drawing using my computer's file finder or anywhere outside of Gimp the exported image is desaturated with a greenish tint and the reds are muted. I've found that this happens regardless of the file extension I choose to export to.
Does anyone else have this problem? Is there a way to fix it?
Thanks for your time.

Thank you for the reply.
The problem only occurs outside of the program. Inside Gimp, the original art and the exported art look exactly the same, so color matching doesn't do much.
Thanks for trying anyway.
Do you have an example for us?

If it was Photoshop, then the reason would be misconfigured color matching. That the exported picture shows OK in Gimp only confirms the suspicion.
Check how to configure Gimp's color matching, if it has any. Set it to sRGB everywhere, and calibrate your monitor to sRGB.
Ah, I see. Sorry, I think I may have misunderstood you in your first post. I'll check out the settings and change them if needed. Thank you sincerely.
