Default HELP - LR 3 / PSE8 / external drive(?) ISSUE

Hi all,

I'm encountering an interesting issue and I'm not sure why. I've had PSE8 for quite some time and just recently purchased LR3 (lightroom 3). I love both programs and have been playing with all sorts of things. I am new to both even though I've had PSE8 for about 7 months.

When I adjust the pictures on screen they look as I want them too. When I upload the pictures from LR to Facebook, they maintain the level I want...so great. I've just begun saving my photos on an external drive....not sure if this matters.

Then....HOWEVER....when I email the photos or right click to make one my screen shot (from the saved file of off the external hard drive) the overall colour darkens on the photo. I have no idea why as I'm not adjusting anything. I'm simply clicking on the file from hotmail/yahoo to email it AND I'm only right clicking to "add as background" to the laptop.

Can anyone advise why this is taking place as I'm at a complete loss.

Just as a follow up. When I'm in lightroom 3, if I export the photo to my internal drive it saves the picture in the correct colour format without darkening the picture.

Again, I'm totally new to this so I could be missing something? I just don't understand why the picture in lightroom and from my internal harddrive (when viewing in Windows) looks fine. But the moment I go to email it from the harddrive it darkens?

Any advice would be great.
