I was working on Blender Guru's beginner tutorial. When I was rendering final image, I found that rendered image is way different from viewport image, in which I was checking for light setting. Render image looks way brighter than viewport's. How can I correct this?

  • Render setting has not changed from default
  • Exposure is 1.00
  • Ambient Occlusion in world setting is off.
  • Surface strength is 0.8.
  • Color is HSV 0.78, 0.16, 0.228.
  • Color management is 0.
  • Gamma is 1.0.

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, I have two extra lights, and those are hide in viewport. How can I turn off for rendering? $\endgroup$ Apr 19, 2020 at 9:33
  • $\begingroup$ I am moving those extra lights to new collection and turn off. It may be working..... $\endgroup$ Apr 19, 2020 at 9:45

If you have some extra light, turn it off in render in the Outliner or under Object Properties/Visibility:
