Color Variations on Exported stills between Premiere - Photoshop - After FX

I've been having this really annoying issue pretty much forever.

I'm working as normal in premiere - then i need to export TIF a still image (or sequence) and open it in photoshop to edit it.  All good - I open in photoshop, then save back as TIF and import back into premiere - but as soon as the edited frame is back in premiere - it's color/brightness is just slightly off from the original frame. 

I figured it's due to some color space issue - but I tried saving/exporting with all kinds of different settings, in RGB, in CMYK even, with AdobeRGB & with sRGB - it makes no difference.  The re-imported TIFF is always ever so slightly different.  I tried going PNG instead of TIFF - same thing.

Then finally i found a workaround - importing the photoshop file directly into premiere.  That's a bit more messy (when many layers) and files are heavier/larger - but at least it worked.  But now another issue!

I take that photoshop clip (still image exported from my premiere timeline, imported into photoshop - then imported back into premiere as PSD) which is now in my Premiere timeline - and I go to "replace with After Effects Composition' to create a more advanced motion effect in AE - and as soon as that's done and i'm back in Premiere - the color of that very clip is now screwed up just slightly yet again!

This is driving me nuts.  Please tell me that there's some small stupid setting to keep those colors consistent that i just simply don't know about??

Thanks much.

what color profile are you working in? premiere is sRGB same as rec. 709 0-255 D65. set photoshop assign profile to that or convert to profile. also, dynamic link is that too, so any adobe RGB or other non-premiere supported colors get converted as well.

Hey - thanks for reply and sorry to answer so late.  I worked around that issue last month and frankly didn't see your answer here till now, sorry!

But as for the color space - i do with in sRGB.  I didn't change anything in Premiere.  It's when saving the file in Photoshop that the color seems to get screwed up somehow.  The photoshop 'save' dialogue does offer an option to save in sRGB or too disable color management on the saved file - but i tried both options and no matter what i do - the color is off in exactly the same way. 

I'm only working between Premiere - Photoshop - After Effects - nothing else. 

if there's something i'm still missing, i'd appreciate any clarification you can offer!

you probably have a p3 monitor not srgb. use a p3torec709 lut because premiere won't  display anything besides srgb. and it ignores display color management on your monitor too.
