    I'm new to Lightroom -- I installed the 4 beta and am liking it quite a bit, but I'm having trouble with gamma shifts when exporting images. When I export the image, my blacks get completely crunched -- it doesn't match Lightroom at all. It's not just the JPEG being displayed wrong -- I've looked at the exported image on a few different computers and they always appear crunched.
