    PS Color Picker Color imports to LR much darker

    mnp500 Level 1

      I have both Photoshop CC and Lightroom Classic CC set for ProPhoto color space.


      When I create a bright red layer using the PS color picker into a new PS document. (or add the red to an image with other layers) and then import the image into LR, the red is MUCH MUCH darker.


      But if I convert that red layer in PS to Adobe RGB 1998, then the LR match is much better.


      If I'm just importing a regular photo that has red in it, the problem does not exist. ProPhoto to ProPhoto is fine. So what is it about the color-picker reds that are different from natural reds?


      Is there anyone who can explain this to me?  Thanks
