Photos which have been opened through Camera Raw, has inaccurate colors when viewed in regular workspace view regardless off the zoom level, when i open the files in Camera Raw everything seems to be fine, this is a major problem and I am quiet dissapointed that something like this has been overlooked. For example an all blue horizon has shades of purple when seen on the screen, however the color picker doesnt register the purple, and in camera raw the photo seems fine. I feel stupid that I have uninstalled 2015 version .

What do you mean: has inaccurate colors when viewed in regular workspace view?

Yes exactly , however it seems to be solved, I used the reset the preferences on quit option and it seems to be back to normal, I suppose the previous preferences that were migrated from CC 2015 have corrupted something.

The purple shades are not supposed to be there , and this is a direct screenshot, anyways , people upgrading from 2015 should reset preferences to make sure everything works fine.

Can you verify the bit-depth and color space you have your open file and workspace set to? Does it match what the RAW viewer is using? Is the proof colors option toggled on?

Yes they matched each other, and this wasn't a problem about color space Imo, when there is a problem with the colourspace the engine renders the colours in a different way , lets say a less homogenous way. I uninstalled everything and installed photoshop again, and it did the same thing, so I completely reset my MacBook and installed everything, now it works fine with the exact same settings. There was screwup when I upgraded to 2017 version and it persisted until I reset everything. I am pretty sure that this will happen to somebody else as well.
