I think this has to be an issue with your monitor profile.
I have seen reports of profiles being incompatible with Lightroom, but working correctly with Photoshop.
To troubleshoot, try setting sRGB as the monitor profile, and see if that makes PS and LR display the same.
I'm afraid I cannot give you any further advice, but hopefully D Fosse
sees this, he should be able to help you.
If the saturation increase happened only in the Lightroom preview, I'd also suspect the monitor profile. But here the file also exports that way?
I'd look at Lightroom presets first. This doesn't look like a color management issue to me.
Thanks Per for your reply... I'm confident it isn't a profile issue, if I export the same image from both PS and LR using default settings and sRGB colour space the output files are very different and show the same differences when view other other devices.
It has me puzzled...
Im going to do a reset on all presets and export from a RAW file without going to Develop first... maybe that will be where the issue lies! Thanks for your reply.
I'll post the results tomorrow
If I understand you correctly, the image looks right in PS, and as an exported jpg.
And when you import that jpg back into LR, saturation increases.
Im curious about how the original looks in LR before you export it?
The RAW and PSD files look fine in LR and when opened in PS there's no issue there. I can then do my work and export to any file format/colour space from PS and get consistent colour results. If I then import the edited images into LR I get the saturation issue both in preview and in the file itself when viewed on another device, so LR is doing something to alter the file.
I've reset all of my presets now so will run a test file and see what I get.
Well, you do have a wide gamut monitor, and non-color managed apps (Mac Preview?) will display images with the sRGB profile over-saturated, but with Adobe RGB or ProPhoto they will be muted - under-saturated.
But LR should always display them correctly, so I don't understand what's going on here, Could be a preset, I guess ...
It was a preset after all... I hadn't thought of checking those before. I have a collection of presets that I've used for some time without any problems (prior to CC) both for import and export depending on the client. I've just run a few RAW files from several cameras without using any import or export presets and without taking the images through the Develop process. I open the file in PS (from LR) and immediately export a JPG, at the same time I export a JPG from LR and both are identical! Success!
Thanks guys for your input. I'll now recreate some of my presets from scratch in CC and see how that pans out. Perhaps the old presets aren't compatible with something in CC?
