Lightroom Classic 10: Color profile NOT embedded in exporting to Photoshop V22

Please help, I have this problem

While exporting from Lightroom to Photoshop, the color profile (not Adobe, mine) are NOT preserved, so I have to export MANUALLY the tiff all the time and continue to work on that. I think it is a bug, I have this after installing Photoshop V22 and Lightroom V10

Os: Mac OSX

External edit setting: Tiff, ProPhoto RBG, 16 bits, no compression

Please do not post the same question twice. I deleted the duplicate post.

This is indeed a bug and AFAIK Adobe is looking into it. In the meantime you could use this workaround: Open the image from Lightroom in Photoshop as smart object. In Photoshop, double click on the smart object to activate Camera Raw. In Camera Raw toggle the profile, i.e. choose another profile and then choose your profile again. Now Photoshop should render the image correctly. If the kind of edits you want to do can't be done on a smart object, then you can now flatten the image to turn the smart object into a normal background layer.

Hello,

I have attached custom profiles to my .CR3 raw files (Canon R5). When I right click the raw file in LR Classic (10.0) and choose edit in Photoshop (22.0.0) the raw file will open in Photoshop but without the custom profile settings. Opening the Camera Filter in Photoshop (22.0.0) reveals that the custom profiles are not available in ACR (13.0). It won't allow a re-import of the profiles at this stage (Error message: profiles already installed).

When I close Photoshop (22.0.0) , re-open Photoshop (22.0.0) and select the same raw file from the Open File menu the custom   the custom profiles are available in Camera Raw and can be selected and applied to the raw file.

So something gets "lost in translation" between Lightroom Classic (10.0) and Photoshop (22.0.0). All this worked fine in the previous version (9.4 and 21.0 respectivey) so I can attach the issue the latest updates.

Note: when I have successful applied the custom profile in Photoshop (22.0.0) and then try to apply the Camera Raw Filter in the edit process on a layer (background, copy etc.) the custom profiles are once more not available.

What happens if you Export that image as a TIF In LrC and then open that TIF file in Ps?

@Just_Shoot_Me The export as a TIF works fine with the custom preset applied and visible upon opening in PS. As I have mentioned when I start PS (22.0.0) and open the raw file manually I can select the custom profile in the open file dialog within Camera Raw and the profile is applied correctly. However once opened the Camera Raw Filter won't show those profiles anymore. But the main problems is that during the handover from LR Classic (10.0) to PS (22.0.0) via the "Edit in Photoshop..."-option the profile gets lost.

Have you sent this RAW file to Ps as a Smart Object and then tried to the ACR Filter to see if the custom profile is there?

Yes, it does not make a difference if it's send the "normal" way or as a Smart Object. Results are the same. I know it's difficult to explain but as mentioned when the raw file is transferred from LR to PS and you open the ACR Filter the custom profiles are not available. If you select to reinstall the filters within ACR Filter there is an error message that the custom profiles are already installed (but they are nowhere visible).

BUT...as described above (and it does not matter if LR is open or closed)...when you open PS, select open file, select any .CR3 raw file that matches those custom profiles, the file opens within ACR and the custom profiles are available, selectable and can be applied. The file opens within PS and the profile applied. If you select the Camera Raw Filter once more (and it does not matter if it's just the background layer, a duplicate etc.) the custom profiles no longer show up. Only the Adobe standard profiles.

I just reverted back to LR Classic 9.4 and Photoshop 21.1.x with ACR 12.3 and all is working fine (as it was before the updated) with the custom profiles transferred from LR to PS during the "Edit in PS" dialog. The custom profiles are also available in the Camera Raw Filter.

So I can clearly pin this on the updates to 10.0 and 22.0.

This is a known bug and discussed in another thread aready. Adobe is working on it.

@JohanElzenga Thank you for the info. In the meantime I've found the other thread. Using the Smart Object workaround does not work all the time (sometimes the custom profiles are available, sometimes not?) and I have a feeling that there's a color cast but I might be wrong. Anyway...it would be good if Adobe would issue a fix as this is a serious problem imho.

Hello - whenever I edit a picture in LR 10 and I use a custom color profile (NOT the adobe standard profiles) and parse the picture to PS 22.0.0 with "Edit in ...", the picture has lost the color profile completely. The first pic was graded with a custom color profile only and after "Edit in Photoshop 2012" the picture shows up as you can see in the second pic.

The only workaround that helps right now, is to downgrade camera raw to V12 - but this can't be the answer for long. Any idea or solution?
