I am having the same exact issue right now. None of the color grading/edits from Lightroom is being replicated over to Photoshop 2021 if selecting "edit in photoshop 20201" since upgrading both Lightroom Classic and Photoshop. This is very frusterating and has distrubted my workflow.

Could it be this: when opening RAW camera images in each application, the characteristics of the camera are taken into account [it’s a kind of camera profile]. That means that Photoshop and Lightroom both need to be latest versions - because the RAW processor [with its camera compensation profiles] sometimes gets updated.

If you make a tiff in lightroom and save that then open it in Photoshop are you seeing the same issue?

 

I hope this helps

thanks

This looks like a defective monitor profile. If you're not using a calibrator, monitor/laptop manufacturers distribute their own generic profiles through Windows Update, and these profiles are very often bad in several ways. This will often affect applications differently.

 

Look at the histograms from these screenshots. The severe channel clipping seen in the PS example (which accounts for the purple cast) is very typical of a broken monitor profile:

As a first troubleshooting step, replace your current profile with sRGB IEC61966-2.1. It won't be entirely accurate, but if the difference disappears, then that confirms the profile is bad. Then you should get a calibrator to make a new profile.

If that doesn't help, it could be a buggy video driver. Disable GPU in both Photoshop and Lightroom preferences, and compare again.

 

A more remote possibility - and only if you have two displays - is that one of them is using the wrong profile. But try the above first.

Hello,

 

Well the issue is not in a defective driver, as explain in my original post, as long as i had the previous version of photoshop the colors were 100% the same of lightroom.

Now i have tried few experiments and disabling the gpu acceleration as fixed the issue for a little, but not turning it on or off doesn't seems to make absolutely zero difference, i believe the issue relies on the photoshop update somehow, but i can't fix it defenetely.

I have managed to isolate the problem and its 100% photoshop.

just tried by exporting one single image from lightroom, import that one in photoshop then from there procede with the usual edit in photoshop from lightroom and boom! all the pictures have the correct colors.

 

If instead i directly do the edit in photoshop thing from lightroom the colors mismatch.

OK, maybe Neil is right (post#1)... Because that's the difference between raw file and rendered RGB file. Those two require very different processing in Lightroom.

 

What are the exact version numbers in Lightroom and Photoshop? Check in Help > About.

Photoshop 22.0.0 and lightroom 10.0 with camera raw 13.0

 

All latest versions, but as i have explain, its a bug in Photoshop that might effect, some machines and not others.

I have made a test, to proove it.

open photoshop and lightroom, try with the classic edit from photoshop, the image will come completely screwed.

Now instead try exporting to dng, load it up in photoshop, camera raw will pop up, the colors are correct.

Finish by doing again the edit in photoshop from lightoroom, now all colors match, no matter the picture you open.

But you need to do that every time you re open photoshop.

You're making this very complicated. Let's simplify:

  • Raw file in Lightroom > edit in Photoshop > it comes out wrong
  • RGB file in Lightroom > edit in Photoshop > it comes out right

 

Is this correct?

 

In that case: what are the color profiles of these files going to Photoshop? If you haven't changed any of the default settings in Lightroom, they will be:

  • ProPhoto RGB in the first case (default for edit in)
  • sRGB in the second case (default for Export, which is where it originally comes from)

 

Still correct?

 

It's perfectly possible that a bad monitor profile will fail with a ProPhoto file, but work correctly with an sRGB file. It's also perfectly possible that this will happen in one application but not the other.

 

So again: Can you try to replace the monitor profile as per my screenshot above?
