    Color Desaturation


      Hi! I just recently noticed that when I move a cropped photo onto a new canvas (like putting two 3x4 photos onto a 6x4 canvas) that the color desaturates. Why is it doing this? I'm pretty sure that I didn't have this problem before. I use Photoshop CC for just the basics so I'm feeling totally lost. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

          Then you should see a warning such as:





          You can “reset all warning dialogs” on the main General Preferences window.

            Could you please set the Status Bar to »Document Profile« and post a screenshot taken at View > 100% and with the pertinent Panels (Layers, Channels, Options Bar, …) visible?
