My images change color when I go from Lightroom to Photoshop Elements and then back to Lightroom. Very frustrating - what's up???
HOW DO I KEEP THE COLOR CONSISTENT when I go from Lightroom to PS Elements?????
I manage my raw files in Lightroom and do most of my editing there. If an image has a lot of scatter I make ONLY those fixes in PS Element. When I'm done with the back scatter I save the file in PS Elements and it then magically appears back in Lightroom. Very slick. Problem is that by the time the photo gets back into Lightroom the colors have changed (sometimes significantly). Its particularly bad with the blues (which turn purple).
I've tried a number of things, including:
-Setting the preferences in Lightroom so that the external editor has both a TIFF or PSD file format (I have tried both formats)
-Making sure both software programs are using the same color space at the same time (I've tried both sRGB and ProPhotoRGB)
-I've set Lightroom's external editor bit depth to 8-bit depth to align with PS Elements 8-bit depth
I'm at a loss!
PS - the RAW editor in PS Elements does not come up when I pull my RAW images from Lightroom into PS Elements. Does that provide a clue?
See photo attached.... I made no color changes between the two images. The difference is before and after using Photoshop Elements as the external editor. The more purple photo has been edited (for scatter only) in PS Elements. This is what it looks like when it comes back
