Need more data. You're working with a raw from what camera, opening first in ACR? You apply edits and when you ask to 'open' it looks different at this point?

Thank you for the reply. It happens with .NEF, .ARW & .RAF files when they are opened directly into ACR. It also happens with all files including .jpg when opened in ACR from photoshop. For a split second they look as they should and then a second later I can see them visably darken. This has only started happenign since upgrading to 2023 version 24.0.1 and ACR 15.0. When I then go from ACR to photoshop they do the reverse; dark for a second then visably lighten.

First, try disabling GPU in the preferences (Performance tab). Any better?

 


If not, recalibrate and build a new ICC display profile; the old one might be corrupted.


If you are using software/hardware for this task, be sure the software is set to build a matrix, not LUT profile, Version 2, not Version 4 profile.
If turning OFF the GPU works, it's a GPU bug, and you need to contact the manufacturer or find out if there's an updated driver for it.

Thank you for your response, I really do appreciate your help. However, much of what you have said might as well have been in Russian. I am not that technically minded. This has only started to happen since updating to the 2023 version. I'm using a 16" macbook pro with a M1 Max graphics thing so I'm fairly up to date so can't understand why this is happening. I did wonder about deleting 2023 ACR and using the 2022 version but I can not even work out how to do that! Sorry for being so dim!

Oh, this seems to have helped. Once I've opened the Camera Raw Filter I went to the settings cog in the upper right hand and scrolled down to Performance and Use Graphics Processor and turned it off. Even though I had this setting turned off in my general Photoshop settings it seems to turn itself on in the Camera Raw Filter.

If turning OFF GPU works, it's a GPU bug and you need to contact the manufacturer or find out if there's an updated driver for it. This is why disabling GPU is an option as more and more functionality moves to the GPU in newer versions of many Adobe products.
