That means the images have different native color spaces, but at least one of them lacks a color profile to identify that color space.

A lot of images on the web are untagged (lack an embedded color profile). Always assign sRGB to these files before proceeding. If you paste an untagged web image into, say, an Adobe RGB file, you get this. With an embedded profile, it will get correctly converted during the paste and the color is maintained.

The same thing happens if your Photoshop document is unta

Bottom line: never, ever, work with untagged material in Photoshop. This is what happens.

Personally, I'd say Photoshop has done a great job of fixing the awful oversaturated image! But that's not it's job, this is all about colour profiles.

Hello, I have purchased an image on Adobe stock.  Should those be untagged? 

 

Anyhow, I'm selecting part of a single image purchased on stock.adobe.com and I'm pasting it onto the same image, just a bit lower than the selected area.  The pasted portion has a darker tint.  Why?

An image should never be untagged. There should always be an embedded profile.

 

If there is no profile you need to assign one. Since you don't know which one it's supposed to be, pick the one that looks reasonably right (sRGB, Adobe RGB, ProPhoto, P3).

Actually, that image I found on a manufacturer's website, not Adobe Stock, my mistake.

How can I determine if it has a profile?  I have converted the image file found on the web to a .PSDC file.  As it stands the image mode is RGB.  Why doesn't it copy and paste properly?

"Why doesn't it copy and paste properly?"

You need to give us more info on what you mean by that phrase?

Is the colour wrong?

Perhaps include screenshots placed inline in the message, NOT as attachments ideally.

 

I hope this helps

Okay, even after assigning a color profile, I get two tones after copying and pasting a portion of the image.  I have copied the top center portion of the image, then pasted it just below it to try to mask the smartphone.  See attachment ...Capture3.jpg

It's not actually darker, it's just vignetting that makes the edge darker. See the two sample points here:

'Mode RGB' doesn't signify the presence of an ICC profile tag, it's just telling you the image type.

I'd be amazed if Adobe Stock images are untagged, but it's easy to find out for sure with any image.

Heres how:

Make sure that in Photoshop under edit/color settings /color management policies you have the option for missing profiles: ask when opening checked

- then open the image you downloaded. (don't test with a stock image that you’ve already opened in Photoshop then saved, as that process could have embedded a profile depending on your setings).

Screenshot 2022-07-17 at 15.20.25.jpg

 

IF the image has no embedded profile pretty much the only proper option you have is to go back to the image provider - or perhaps more practically, you could try using Photoshop's edit/assign profile options to select an apt ICC profile. . Of course there's a risk here, as you may change the image appearance from the originators intention - if you assign the "wrong" profile, but if you like the result - then I suppose you're good to go. The profiles I'd try first would be Adobe RGB and sRGB

I was able to assign a color profile to the original document, then saved it anew in Adobe Creative Cloud.  Copying and pasting render two different tones.
