Any time I choose to edit a photo in Photoshop from my Lightroom library,
the photo gets a big boost in contrast when it opens in PS and it stays like that if i hit save and go back to lightroom.
Here are a few screenshots:
THIS IS THE PHOTO IN LIGHTROOM, AND HOW IT SHOULD OPEN IN PS
THIS IS THE SAME PHOTO IN PHOTOSHOP, NOTICE THE GREAT BOOST IN CONTRAST
LIGHTROOM EXTERNAL EDITING PREFERENCES
PHOTOSHOP COLOR SETTINGS
I had already done those checks but nothing worked.
Tried something else which solved my issue!
Here's what i did:
Turns out Camera Raw's defauts were making changes on the files as soon as they entered PS.
So i changed the Camera Profile in Lightroom to ADOBE STANDARD, and them proceeded to do the same in Camera raw and save as new defauts.
Why are you are opening the raw file directly inside PS? You should use 'Edit in Photoshop' (CTRL+E), which will apply the LR Develop settings (including the LR selected Camera profile) and not the Camera Raw Default Develop settings.
