Colors appear oversaturated when I copy paste an image from internet into photoshop

This has been an ongoing problem for about a year now and i've tried everything i know to fix it. 

 

I draw peoples characters for them for freelance, often they will give me a reference and i use that for color picking for my image. However ever since the updates ealrier this year, if I right click > copy the image then open a new document in photoshop and CTNRL+V the reference is way more saturaed than that was shown in email or on their website. 

 

I have also recently have it go the other way where after exproting an image and uploading it to a website (twitter, discord, and a few other sites) the image suddenly looks desturated compaired to what i was seeing in PS

 

EXAMPLES:

Screen Shot 2020-12-01 at 7.22.44 PM.png

on the left is the image on the website and on the right is when i copy pasted that image into PS new document. The second image is actually the opposide of the original PS drawing on the right and the weirdly desaturated exported one on the left. This happens to ALL images I paste in regardless of profile, or what website I get them from. However this does not happen as bad (still is slightly more saturated) if i save the image then open it in PS that way.

 

Im operating on a Macbook 13 2019 OS  Big Sur (11.0.1) 

and Photoshop 2021 v 22.0 (i think? it is the most up to date) 

ive also checked my displays calibration and that didnt help it

here is my Color Settings and Assign Preference settings menu. Even scrolling through possible profile options none of them match the colors from the source file

Why are you assigning your display profile to the image. That effectively turns off colour management. A display profile describes your monitor not your document.

 

You already have preserve embedded profiles checked which will work well for any images downloaded that have a profile embedded. If you get a warning that an image has no profile, try assigning sRGB first. For web based images that is the most common profile.

 

When exporting for web use, ensure that convert sRGB and embed color profile are both checked

I never manually assign profiles to the images, i am simply showing all windows and how they were already set. I looked through those before and none of them matched. Display is what is auto selected by PS for me so i didnt touch it. 

 

Evem if i swap that over to sRGB now, the colors are sitll way off

Clearing up my previous reply

 

the display is what is auto selected when i make a new document. I would be satisfied if it auto went to sRGB because that is still the closest to the original image. Is there a way to have it auto select that instead of display

It's as Dave said. Those images are untagged, they don't have an embedded color profile. This is a demonstration of why the profile should always be embedded.

 

If there is no profile, you need to assign one, to ensure consistent handling from that point on. sRGB is usually the safest bet, so always try that first.

 

Without a profile, anything can happen.
