Image review - colours appear washed out

When I look at the images I have taken on my k3-ii the colours on the screen look rather washed out (eg daffodils more white than yellow) But when I load the images into lightroom the colours are much more accurate and and usually fine. I am wondering if there is a setting in the review menu that I have missed. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Yes! Until you get used to the control layout, it is very easy to accidentally change the setting. It is likely set to "muted" or some other not very attractive look.

Custom image sorted it

Thanks to all who replied to my problem. I was not aware of the custom image settings. I have adjusted this now and it appears to have resolved my problem. Much appreciated.

Our pleasure! You are not the first and sadly, probably will not be the last.
