I have an issue with colors:
- I shoot in sRGB
- My images look the same on the Camera and in the Library view
- In the Develop view, however, the colors are ruined
1. Photo in Library
2. Photo in Develop
I've tried switching profiles in the Profile Browser, including Camera Mathing -> Faithful, but it is still a disaster. Changing a color profile for my display to sRGB on Windows didn't change anything.
Does anyone know how to make Develop have the same colors I have in the Library (and on my camera)?
Thanks in advance!
The only thing I can think of is a corrupted Develop preview. (Library and Develop use separate previews)
Try purging the Camera raw cache. This will delete the Develop previews, and new ones will be created when you open images in Develop.
Preferences > Performance > Camera raw cache settings > Purge cache.
Yes, I also thought it might be a problem with preview generation, and was also going to suggest purging the cache. But then I got a little unsure and deleted it...
If it is previews, I suppose it could also be that Library is stuck on the camera-generated ones and doesn't update. If Develop updates in real-time as you work, that might be it. It's not supposed to match the camera anyway.

I considered that too, but I wouldn't have thought that there's a camera setting that changes blue to purple.
And I don't think a defective monitor profile could cause something like this either.
Thanks for the answers!
Now it actually looks like Lightroom uses embedded previews from the camera. (if I export from the Library, I get a blue color, not purple)
But the problem is that in reality, the color of the lamp was purple, not blue...
In this case, the development of RAW-files with a camera is more "right" than Lightroom development. is there some way to have initial development in Lightroom with the same development options like in the camera? (To get the same colors like on my camera preview?)
Thanks for the answer! I had time to read it before you deleted it 🙂
It looks like you were right - the reason for this display is that Lightroom uses a preview from the camera.
But the problem is that in reality, the color of the lamp was purple, not blue - if I shift the blue color towards purple in the develop module, I get a completely purple lamp, and not the same as on camera preview/in real life - with purple-blue colors around the edges and in the reflections on the clothes. Do you have any ideas, how to get the same colors?
There was a similar issue with Panasonic FZ200 RW2 raw files.
Unfortunately the links to the Lightroom forum posts with further information have been deleted (i.e. Adobe Forums App change). I suggest uploading the original raw file to Dropbox or other file shareing site and prodvide the share link in a reply here. I can examine it further and provide possible workaround.
I opened the IMG_6460.CR2 file in Canon Digital Photo Professional (DPP) and the tube appears purple as you show in the Library module screenshot. I'm guessing this is actually the camera's embedded preview, which is the same as the in-camera JPEG. If you Zoom to 1:1 in the Library module it will rebuild the preview, which should now look the same (blue) as the Develop module. The Camera Standard and Camera Neutral profiles look very close to the Canon DPP rendering on my system. All the other Camera Matching profiles exhibit the same blue shift.
You can open a Problem Report at the Photoshop Family forum. Place a link to this post in your report and a link to the report back here for others who land here. You can also place a link to the older report I provided, which may help. Unfortunately the Adobe forum post that Adobe Engineer Eric Chan commneted on is gone, but you can mention that as well.
