Why do images look different, viewed on the same monitor in Bridge and Photoshop Element Organize

I've been wonder for some time why some of my images will look different when viewed in Adobe Bridge 2023 vs being shown in the Photoshop Elements Organizer 2022.  I'm looking at them both on the same monitor, a BenQ SW 2700 driven by a NVIDIA RTS A2000 12 GB card on a Windows 11 Pro platform.  The color profile is set to sRGB IEC 61966-2.1.

 

Here is a screen capture with each program showing their view of the same image file on the same monitor.  The image on the left is being viewed in Adobe Bridge while the one on the right is the Elements Organizer.

The center of the rose is somewhat brighter in Adobe Bridge(left).  When the file is viewed side-by-side in Photoshop CC and Adobe Bridge they look the same as shown below:

I have a second BenQ SW 2700 monitor and I see the same differences when the images are on separate monitors.  My conclusion is that there's some difference in the way Photoshop Elements Organizer renders an image file vs the way Photoshop renderes the same file.

 

Any other thoughts, explanations or recommendations?

What is the embedded color profile? Your color settings aren't important. What matters is the embedded profile, which will override the working space.

@D Fosse  is right, if the Embedded Color Profile is in the the same place in PSE as it is in Photoshop where you posted. I've moved your post to Photoshop Elements.

If you go to Edit>Color Settings in either the Organizer or the Editor, you will get the following dialogs which allow you to adopt different color management settings.

The document profile in the Editor is found in the same location as D Fosse's screenshot of Photoshop.  (If you are replying to or reviewing posts via email, your screenshots will not show up in the forum and you will not be able to see the screenshot I have posted.)

Greg,

For the image that I was comparing, the Elements Editor opens the window indicating there is no color profile embedded in the image.  My version of the Editor does not have a place to click in the lower left corner as thre is in Photoshop CC that shows the color profile.  The fact that the two programs have some differences in the images they show is not really importan to me from a practical point of view since I'm always going with what Photoshop shows me.  It's just a bit annoying at times.  Since I've been using the Element Organizer to catalog my photos for a long time it would be nice if the two gave the same results.  My post was mainly one generated out of curiosity, hoping that someone would be able to explain why there's a difference.  I don't use the Elements Editor, only the Organizer.
