Lightroom - Photoshop saturation difference

Hi all.

Got some issues when exporting from Lightroom to Photoshop. I get a big difference in Saturation. I guess its a profile thing but I´m using the same profile that Lightroom sends the photo with (Prophoto RGB), still it looks like this. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance. / Daniel

Re: Lightroom - Photoshop saturation difference

Is your color setting in Photoshop synchronized?
I have LightRoom on Pro also, and PhotoShop on sRGBIEC61966-2.1.

My RGB working space in Photoshop is Adobe RGB, but when I send the picture from Lightroom I make it run on the one set on the photo (ProPhoto RGB).

sRGB is such a small space, so would not want to use that right?

Re: Lightroom - Photoshop saturation difference

I use sRGBIEC61966-2.1 for the internet, because the Pro looks dull.
Is the one on the right Lightroom, that one is dull.
The picture says your color profile is LCD.
It prints wonderful in LightRoom, better then photoshop.
I print all the time in Lightroom.

Re: Lightroom - Photoshop saturation difference

I just did a screen grab of the shot in Lightroom and exported to Photoshop to show the difference I get in saturation, thats why it says LCD profile. The photoshop one is the one to the right.

I dont do my own prints (I send the files to clients) and need to do more adjustments than Lightroom can offer, hence why I want to edit in PS. I still have not been able to figure this out.

Cheers / D

Re: Lightroom - Photoshop saturation difference

Are you looking at the right Proof colors in Photoshop?
Go to View,
Proof Settings: click, Custom and pick ProPhoto RGB from the drop down menu.
then use relative colorimetric,
black point compensation
Click OK
Both pictures in Lightroom and Photoshop will look the same.

In photoshop in color setting
pick ProPhoto RGB

I hope this works ,
it does on my computer.

Very strange!
Try to go to the Lightroom forum and ask.

Oh, when you save, and it goes back to Lightroom, does it look perfect again?

Re: Lightroom - Photoshop saturation difference

Are you sure you're "exporting" from lightroom? Or do you just mean you are opening up the file in photoshop after you make adjustments in lightroom? If you are actually exporting the file through lightroom into photoshop, then this saturation difference shouldn't be happening...

But if you're just opening up the file through photoshop, it doesn't matter what lightroom camera raw settings you have on the same file.... it'll open up in ACR in a default way, unless you "save" the changes to the file in lightroom before you open it separately in photoshop. Does that make sense?

Re: Lightroom - Photoshop saturation difference

Hi Andrew

I´m just right clicking and Edit in/Edit in Photoshop. Unless I´ve done that to the file before it wont let me choose if I should go with the changes that where made to the file. I´ve been checking around and figured out that it has something to do with photoshop/lightroom not color managing when used on a 2nd display (I have my Mackbook pro hooked up to a Eizo). Because it works fine when I´m not using that screen and just keep LR/PS on my laptop. Have not found any solution to this though..
