Placed objects affect colors of blocks

Hello,

Iv'e been having an issue with InDesign which I've never experienced in the past.
I'm using InDesign 16.3.2 on OSX Big Sur.

I'm working on a layout for a web pdf catalog. I have blocks of the same orange color for headers and footers.

The issue I have is when I place certain image files the colour of the block changes tint even though the color is the same for the whole document. I've included a snippet from my document so you can see both blocks are not the same colour on page 1 and 2

Screen Shot 2021-08-20 at 4.02.42 PM.png


I've checked my PSDs and the color profiles and modes all match.
I also tried  with and without transparency, flattening the images, different file types... and I always get the same result. 
It seems to only happen on certain pages.
If I remove the image, the colour goes back to normal.

 

This has never hapened to me in the so I'm wondering if it's a bug? Has anyone experienced this before?

Thanks for your help!

And you've selected the appropriate Edit > Transparency Blend Space?

Does turning off GPU performance in the Preferences change anything?

 

Can you check the separations to see if the values match?

How does it export/print?

Your Transparency Blend Space needs to be Document RGB.

Apart from fixing your blend space, you need to consider your intended end product. If you are going to print this (e.g. traditional offset, etc), it would be good for you to proof the expected output colors anyway. (view > Proof...). Chances are, all of your oranges will end up being the same if your color settings are consistent.

Hi taniam92520824,

turn on Overprint Preview and Separations View to check if the color values are as expected.
