node color much darker then render

Could somebody please help be a bit…I created a node group to import it in another blend file. All works fine…the only problem is that there is a difference in the color displayed in the node editor and the one that show up in the properties window. The one in the proprties window is less dark. And of course my render is the less dark color. (use nodes is selected)


I could interpret your phrase, “the render is less dark,” in several different ways. Please say it differently.

Do you have “color management” turned-on or turned-off consistently? (It probably should be “(consistently) on.”)
