    Quick one - when I edit a photograph in Lightroom 4.3 and export it into Photoshop CS6 (Latest ACR installed) I am getting a colour shift from the warm tones I have dialled in to a cooler version in Photoshop.

    Any idea why, and what I can do to fix this - I am getting rather irate!

    Cheers

    Could be a monitor profile issue - check that Photoshop is using the current monitor profile (color settings>working spaces>Monitor RGB). Temporarily install sRGB as your monitor profile to see if differences vanish—that'll point towards a potentially corrupt monitor profile or a compatibility problem (with a v4 monitor profile for instance).

    In Photoshop's colour settings make sure that you have 'preserve embedded profiles' selected in colour management policies, and check all the boxes (you might try that first before faffing around with the monitor profile).

    At the risk of stating the very obvious, check that when you click "Edit in...CS6" in Lightroom, you are then clicking (or defaulting to) "Edit Copy with Lightroom Changes" or words to that effect.

    Not a profile issue I don't think.... NEVER use your monitor profile as a working space in Photoshop, use either Adobe RGB or Prophoto RGB (Prophoto is closer to the Mellisa RGB that Lightroom uses beneath the covers)

    I am not in front of Lightroom at the moment but LeftForums suggestion is good.... and yes make sure that preserve embedded profile is checked in Photoshop...

    If that's what my post inferred, no, don't! The path I posted was merely intended as a means of checking the current monitor profile, which should be listed in the drop-down menu alongside 'Monitor RGB'. If you were to click on that you'd be effectively turning colour management off.

    Any disparity in colour between programs always potentially points towards a profile problem. However, I do agree that LF's post may resolve the issue - seems fairly likely that the Lightroom adjustments are merely being discarded en route.

    Profile seems the best explanation

    ah ha - dodgy profile it was!

    Deleted the monitor profile to use the un-profiled settings and Lightroom/Photoshop look the same again. So... I just need to either find my Huey Pro again which has wandered off... or get something a little more useful instead Wink

    Cheers, that wasn't one I was expecting to be causing the problem!
