Colour issue between LR and PS

I have started to notice that the appearance of a DNG file that is initially edited in LR and then edited in PS and saved as a PSD when viewed back in LR the PSD in LR appears warmer compared to the same PSD file viewed in Photoshop. The PS PSD file also seems somewhat flat. I have the latest version of LR Classic and PS and edit my images on a BenQ SW2700PT that is a 2nd monitor. I am using a 27inch iMac 2013 with Catalina. The BenQ is profile using Palette Master element and a Spyder X pro. I use ProPhoto RGB throughout (External File Handling in LR and as the working space in PS and Preserve Embedded Profiles. The iMac is profiles using the Spyder software but I am not sure if that is relevant.

I have also noticed that if a open a RAW file directly in Camera Raw and then in PS there is similiar color shift
I would have thought that the same file should look the same on the same monitor with the same embedded profile and so I assume I must be doing something wrong


Any advice most welcome

James

It seems your monitor profile could be corrupt. Please check.

How do I change my monitor profile to check whether it’s corrupted? | The Lightroom Queen

 

Have you tried to recalibrate your monitors?

They should match when you examine all the images in Develop at 1:1 or greater, vs. Photoshop at 100% or greater. Be sure you view this way in LR to compare. If they don't, I agree, it's the display profile. 

First, try disabling GPU in the preferences (Preformance). Any better?
If not, recalibrate and build a new ICC 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.

Hi

 

I tried the GPU option and this made no difference.  I then re-calibrated both monitors but I was not hopeful as I have tried this many times before.  Again no improvement.  I then removed all the profile from the folder ColorSync/Profiles and the result of this was that both monitors reverted to their "factory or default" profiles.  In this state there was no change in image colour when switching from LR to PS either with a Raw file or a PSD file.  So the problem arises when I create a monitor profile. So I then wondered if somehow the software was producing a corrupt profile and so I removed SpyderX Pro completely and started from scratch.  I recreated the iMac profile using the SpyderX software and the BenQ monitor using PME.  Same result.  Any ideas?  I shall contact Datacolor as well

It sounds like the profile isn't correctly being created.

If you run the Apple ColorSync Utility, Profile First Aid, does it show errors in that profile from the Spyder? 

The issue sounds like maybe a bug not with the Spyder but with BenQ's software. Not news to me but if you have the Spyder software, and you calibrate using it instead of Pallette Master, do you still see the issue?

Hi

 

I found that both the Spyder Profile for the iMac and the profile for BenQ monitor (PME) were corrupted.  I repaired both but this has made no difference.  I will try using the Spyder for both Profiles now and see what happens

I have now claibrated both monitors using spyderX software.  The issue with the colour difference between raw and psd files opened in LR and PS remains.  I now only notice this on the BenQ monitor in that the PS image always seems washed out compared to the identical image when viewed in LR.  It is almost as if Photoshop and Lightroom are using different profiles on the same monitor  

Gratfeul for any ideas

I appear to have solved it.  I made the Benq monitor the primary monitor rather than the iMac and once I had done that there was no longer an issue with LR and PS color shifts.  It would seem that one of the 2 does not work well on a secondary monitor - in my setup at least.

 

Thanks for all the help
