Hello team!

 

I have a problem with my Lightroom/Photoshop. (both were up to date).

Tried to also downgrade for one version, but no effect.

 

Actual problem:

I open my photo in Lightroom and decide to edit in in photoshop, after editing (or even if no editing) is done in photoshop I save. Photos looks same in lightroom (original one) and in Photoshop (edited / non edited), however new image that is now shown in Lightroom has completely different color tone.

Example is attached for better understanding.

 

Any idea what might caused this problem?

 

Thanks in advance.

Try resetting your Photoshop preferences. Press and hold Alt+Control+Shift (Windows) or Option+Command+Shift (Mac OS) immediately after launching Photoshop. You will be prompted to delete the current settings.  Some users have reported resetting Photoshop's preferences fixes an issue of profiles being removed before being saved and then accessed in Lightroom Classic.

Hello to all of you and thanks, this actually worked. I did a mistake and did not delete current settings file. The window did not pop out since I tried to push and hold after application is already running.

 

For others, resetting works but you really have to push and hold buttons before application is up and running.

 

Best regards! and thanks again 🙂

Make sure when comparing images in Lightroom Classic and Photoshop that first, you view the image in Lightroom Classic in Develop module at 1:1 zoom. IF have your Edit In preferences set for anything but ProPhoto RGB, say sRGB, set up a soft proof for that color space, again in Develop. Then compare in Photoshop at the same zoom (100%).

If that doesn't work, a few things to try in each application, disable GPU in preferences; 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 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. On the Mac, that's part of the OS update(s) so if this is the latest OS version, you may need to roll back a release.

Hello, tried all this as well, but did not help...

 

I think the problem is somehow photoshop save, because not only that it looks different in photoshop, actual tiff file is also different. Color shift is obvious and picture become way more "green".

 

Attached is also example of raw file vs tiff file saved from photoshop.

 

Any thoughts?

Depending on the version, you should not be viewing the TIFF in the Windows Photo Viewer. 

You say raw vs. TIFF. I need to see the raw in the Develop module, soft proofed to whatever profile is used to export that raw. Then that TIFF in Photoshop or a known color managed application, both at the same zoom ratio, ideally 1:1

This has to be the same bug we've seen quite a few cases of lately: the embedded ProPhoto profile from Photoshop is not honored in Lightroom, and the image treated as sRGB.

 

The screenshots show this very clearly: this is how ProPhoto looks without proper color management. Just try for yourself: assign sRGB to a ProPhoto file in Photoshop. This is exactly how it looks.

 

In all other cases reported here so far, resetting Photoshop preferences has fixed it. So try again, and make sure you do it right. Your old files may still be affected, so try a new roundtrip.

I suggested that could be the issue with a recommendation to reset prefs that has been a fix. We were told that doesn't work. I give up <g>.
