Selection Loses Color Info when dragged

When dragging a selection to a target background, the original selection loses color information and and becomes muddy, flat and loses contrast, saturation, everything.  By playing with the color and hue sliders in the new document, I can get a little color back, but nowhere near the original.  Everything is using the same color space, but still this happens every time.  I'm usually pretty good with treoubleshooting PS, but this one has me baffled.  Using current versions of the software and MacOS on a Mac Pro desktop.

 

Does anyone have any thoughts?  Thanks  in advance.Screen Shot 2024-03-09 at 12.15.22 PM.pngScreen Shot 2024-03-09 at 12.16.29 PM.png

This is because you're working without color management, with untagged images. Never do that. Always make sure there is an embedded color profile (sRGB, Adobe RGB, ProPhoto, Image P3).

Meanwhile you find a way to manage color profiles, you can do the inverse :

Select your guy

Drop the background to you guy pic

Use the guy selection as a mask

If some one is asking you to build a bridge, you can also find another way to cross the river

Everything is using the same color space, but still this happens every time.  

To demonstrate that please set the Status Bar to »Document Profile« and post meningful screenshots with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Options Bar, …) visible.
