    RAW files appear edited in Photoshop, Bridge and Lightroom

      I have a problem with my RAW files in Photoshop and Bridge. When I import them in Lightroom or open them in Camera RAW via Bridge they get automatically edited, The contrast and color changes and not for the better. It's like the program does a whole series of edits on my pictures.


      I've been working with these programs for years and I never encountered this problem. My RAW files used to need only a small change in color and contrast. Now I have darkened shadows (almost black) and over saturated colors and to much contrast.


      I know the whole story about RAW files being rendered before being shown in Lightroom or Camera RAW. But I have the feeling that it's now the other way around. My neutral RAW files are turned into edited versions without my approval.


      I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling. I've tried unchecking the "use graphics processors"-box.

      The "auto tone adjustment"-box seem to have disappeared in my version of Lightroom.

      I've calibrated my monitor with a Spyder 5 Pro.


      Now I'm all out of ideas......


      Is there anyone with some suggestions?


      Kind regards,
