Problem with Color Management (wide gamut monitor)

When viewing PDF documents containing images on my wide gamut monitor, images have oversaturated colors. They look identical to the way non-color managed Windows applications display the same images (like the (current) Edge browser and the Photos app).

The same PDFs looks OK when opened in Photoshop (or in the Chrome browser).

 

I have used the following ways to create the PDFs used for testing:

1) Photoshop

- Open a JPEG color image (sRGB or AdobeRGB) in Photoshop
- In Photoshop: File -> Save As... -> Save as type: Photoshop PDF

1) Bridge

- Go to the Output module
- Drag a single image on to the page
- Export to PDF


=> Using: Adobe Acrobat Reader DC - 2020, Version 20.006.20034


My system details:

- Adobe Photoshop Version: Adobe Photoshop 2020 Version: 21.1.0 20200212.r.106 2020/02/12: 4dd027efb58 x64
- Bridge Version: Adobe Bridge 2020: 10.0.3.138 x64
- Adobe Camera Raw Version: 12.2.0.386
- Monitor: Eizo CG2730 (calibrated regularly with Xrite i1 Display)
- Windows 10 Pro x64 version: 1909 - Os build 18363.720
- Graphics driver: Driver version: 442.19 (GeForce GTX 1060 3GB)

Tried this and once in the ten tries the 'real' picture shows itself. If you close Acrobat and load the picture again it may hold on to the original colours, but it's always after a few tries that the oversaturated colours come back. In the thread the Sandbox Protections should be changed, but I had to change also the option below (Enhanced Security). Overall it seems to me a bad sign that you have to change security settings to get the right picture. Afterwards I reset all the initial settings so the security is back again.

 

Just like reinstalling Acrobat, this effect seems to work at first, but doesn't hold up.

 

Hope this helps. By the way, my laptop still insists on showing the right colours, so I have my escape 😉
