Outputting PDF files from Bridge 2019 v9.0.3 produces dark saturated colors (specially reds/flesh tones)
Just spent 90 minutes with tech support uninstalling and installing different versions of Bridge and going thru Bridge, Acrobat Pro DC and Photoshop preferences.
Then got a call from my partner... he found a work around.
He had not deleted CS6 from his computer.
When outputting the same files from "Bridge CS6" the results were perfect.
Not so out of Bridge CC versions.
I have checked Bridge CS6 vs CC settings and can see no differences except in the results.
Unfortunately I deleted CS6 and can't find away to reinstall it while I wait for a fix.
Adobe is aware of the problem.
Unfortunately, Adobe has changed its download policy.
"Adobe is aware of this problem"
That is so discouraging because this has been going on for soooo long...
I have been delivering PDFs to clients without knowing what was causing this problem.
Now that I have found a CS6 Workaround I feel terrible about delivering those "Dark and Oversaturated" PDFs in the past.
C'mon Adobe. This can't stand.
Is there any update to this problem? Has Adobe found a solution? Client reactions to these pdfs is not good. thanks.

Found the work around.
Luckily I have archived installers of Adobe Web Design Premium dating back to version 4 along with serial numbers.
Installed Photoshop and Bridge out of CS6. It accepted my serial number.
Running "Help->Updates" even updated Bridge, Photoshop, Camera Raw..."
Now I can take the images worked up and repurposed in Bridge CC2019
Switch to Bridge CS6 and "OUTPUT"
There is no change in the image quality or color in the PDF created with CS6.
