Hi, I need help. When I move my photo from LR to PS my photo is very desaturated to the point that it looks black and white and greenish. Color space is matching, sRGB. I also tried resetting both applications, PS is on RGB not greyscale. It was fine last night but now I am having a problem.

One other possibility: Are you using any custom/third-party camera profiles in Lightroom? There's a bug (that I hoped was fixed by now) that prevents these profiles from being correctly picked up by ACR.   The standard/native camera profiles are not affected, so do you see the same when using any of these profiles?

That's what a ProPhoto file looks like without proper color management. ProPhoto is Lightroom's default for "edit in Photoshop".

 

Have you changed anything at all in Photoshop's color settings? Because it looks like you've managed to disable Photoshop's color management. Post a screenshot of the color settings dialog.

I was playing around with the Use Graphic processor but put it back to how it was. I tried to figure out what was wrong with it and played more with the settings but ended up resetting both application to rule out anything I could have messed up.

Hi All, is there anything you can suggest trying, I still am experiencing the same problem.

I have a M1 mac mini up do date. LR and PS up to date. I tried uninstalling and intalling PS and still doing the same. Channels are on RGB.

It is only happening when the picture is coming from LR. When I drag a photo to PS it is fine, RAW or jpeg.

Yes, this was my problem. I am using ColorFidelity for my Canon eos R, when I used Adobe Color it transferred to PS fine. Is there any solution to this? On the other hand I have been using this CF profile for quite some time and this problem just occured yesterday.

I think it will work if you "save metadata to file" from Lightroom, ctrl+S.

 

Frankly I don't understand why this bug hasn't been fixed. It's been thoroughly documented on the feedback site for a long time.
