Bad automatic photo display

Hi,

I have an issue with Lightroom. I import my photos. When I start to navigate in my catalog, each time I chose a photo, the firt 0,5 sec I can see the picture I took, and right after, tit seems to have an automatic processing (I guess), and the photo is darker than the original one!

I don't know how to stop this. If I come bak later to the pictor, I can only see the darker one (lower exposition).

Can someone help me? I Work on Lightroom since a few years, but the last update seems to have significantly increased the problem

 

Lightroom Classic 13.0.1 on Mac OS

Thanks for your help

When you Import photos to the LrC catalog, the first previews you see are usually the JPG rendition of the image created by the camera.  After a time (which might be clicking on a preview) LrC will create its own preview of the image, and if you are shooting in raw then it is very liklely the 'new' preview will look different to the initial JPG view.

With raw image files you are expected to edit the image as YOU want.

 

Now if you shoot with a camera feature such as Nikon's Active D-Lighting, the change in appearance can be very obvious. See this link-   (The JPG preview will look great, the LrC raw preview will look dark!)

And another 'old' article but still relevant to the topic-

Immediately after loading, images with light data for preview included in RAW are loaded.
After that, the RAW body data will be loaded.
At this time, the color will change.
Items set in the camera are ignored in Lightroom.
If the camera is set to a function that enhances dark areas, the image may appear dark, but this is normal.
You can also create your own presets to enhance dark areas and load them while applying them.
