Colors are Wrong

What's going on? 😞 I opened Photoshop and typed in my company color and it looks strange (Photo 1: Photoshop 7fb0ce). So I opened a file with the known color in it (Photo 2: Photoshop 7fb0ce smile ) and Photoshop is saying it's a different color than what it should be. So I opened another file (Photo 3: Photoshop 7fadbc) and checked it in the color finder and it too is a different color number than it usually is. Confused, I opened these same two files in Illustrator and the color finder matches the file names for the colors (Photo 4: Illustrator 7fb0ce) (Photo 5: Illustrator 7fadbc). So why is Photoshop saying they're a different color? Please help!!

Hex numbers are not special they are just RGB numbers expressed in base 16. They only describe a specific colour when they refer to a specific colour space.

 

So the same numbers in sRGB, Adobe RGB and ProPhoto, or any other colour space describe different colours.

Similarly the same colour will be described by different numbers in sRGB, Adobe and ProPhoto or any other colour space.

 

Check the colour space (document profile)  you are using for your documents.

I recognize that. Did you look at the photos? The main issue is that Photoshop is changing the color of documents I created in Photoshop.

I did look at the photos and none of them show the document colour profile in use for each of the documents

Your Photo 2 Photoshop 7fb0ce smile.png capture seems to indicate the document’s assigned profile is ProPhoto RGB—the color of the bottom layer’s icon, which is hidden and labeled 7fb0ce looks like that hex color in the ProPhoto space:

The conversion of #7fb0ce as sRGB to ProPhoto would produce the numbers you are showing. ProPhoto on the left and sRGB on the right, with matching values:

The conversion of sRGB to ProPhoto, changes the values to 8c9bde while keeping the sRGB appearance:
