I right click on image in LR and EDIT IN PS 2019,  Do my edit and save file and back in LR, the image in LR of the PSD has different saturation.  Here is a side by side on the same monitor, 1st is PSD in PS, 2nd PDS in LR (returned from PS), 3rd is export of file in LR using sRGB.

unfortunately NO.  once the file is "back" in LR, I can then right click and "Edit in" with original and go back to PS and the file is not altered in PS at all and looks like I would expect it too.   And my export settings is set at sRGB and no presets applied.   Will have to verify that the update didn't change anything.

Thanks for replying though.

sad times, i had a similar issue not that long ago but it was down to my monitor calibration so thought this might have helped. 

Can only suggest a role back and see if it fixes.

Good luck!

yes just found that you can roll back in the cloud app, thank God.  yes the images are all on the same monitor, so if my calibration was off it would be equal on all images.  That being said they are calibrated with the spyder pro 5.

that is actually what i mean. On exactly the same monitor, the calibration isn't read the same way with different software. For example, when i opened up the same image in the windows default preview, it completely ignored my spyder calibration... was very odd! but that was a drastic change, like all detail was lost and everything was green. 

You'd like to think though that adobe products should work the same... but we all know that to be false lol

Jeffrey, 

I notice that in Lightroom you are using the Library module which uses the color managed- Adobe RGB color space. Your Microsoft Preview Image window is using a non-color managed sRGB
If I read you correctly, your Photoshop window is using a color-managed sRGB. 

Those discrepancies in color space and color managed/non color managed applications might be enough to contribute to your color differences.  Try comparing the Develop module version in Lightroom to Photoshop and see if you get closer.  To get spot on you should be using the Pro-Photo color space in Photoshop as well. Then Lightroom and Photoshop should match.

I will try this out when I get to the computer.  I did have a friend tell me to make sure the color spaces are all ProPhoto and only export jpg with sRGB.  but that being said, before this update I didn't have this discrepancies.

The color space seen in Develop is a variant of ProPhoto RGB. But if you export as anything but this variant, especially if you're viewing the image on a wide gamut display, it's possible there could be a slight mismatch visually. Further, if you do not view any of the images in a color managed application, you cannot expect a match! Even if you export sRGB (sRGB is a meaningless concept outside color managed applications). Lastly, always view the images you are comparing at 1:1 (100%), never zoomed out as this alone can produce slight visual differences on-screen.

Andrew, found your youtube on color space an made my ps the same as described and I uninstalled and reinstalled the previous version of PS 2018 and LR 7.5.  It seems to be better now...  its strange that the ONE image I posted there's now a difference in library vs develop (develop being the darker image, all other images look right) but the export seems fine now.  strange.
