Lightroom Classic: Library zoomed view shows wrong color

When zooming into an image in library mode, the color changes suddenly and differs from all the consistent colours shown in develop mode or library mode (fit image). I just updated to LR10.1 and appreciated other fixed bugs. I am using an external BenQ display calibrated to AdobeRGB profile using xrite. The images have Adobe profiles (AdobeVivid) applied.

Updates to Lightroom Classic and the Lightroom Ecosystem products for Desktop, Mobile and Web were released today and contain a fix for this issue.

Please refresh your Creative Cloud application and install your update when it becomes available. Thank you for your patience.

Wow. I don't want to speak too soon, but the issue appears to be fixed. I can actually work and make a living now. Thanks for the update, @Rikk.

I've been waiting for this fix and very glad to see the color fixed for zoomed-in loupe view and thumbnails in grid view in 10.2.

However I still repro the same bug in full screen preview (press "F" from grid or loupe, press space bar or click to zoom in => same desaturating color change) and that's my usual way to preview photos large to check focus and color so very disappointing.

@Rikk  is this known separate issue or missed case?

First, try disabling GPU in the preferences (Preformance). Any better?
If not, recalibrate and build a new ICC profile, the old one might be corrupted.
If you are using software/hardware for this task, be sure the software is set to build a matrix not LUT profile, Version 2 not Version 4 profile.

Disabling GPU (with/without restarting LR) does not change situation. I am wondering why ICC profile should have become corrupted just while updating from 10.0 tu 10.1 version. Anyway, I will try to recalibrate and see what happens.

Recalibrated/profiled with PaletteMaster matrix V2 AdobeRGB (and also experimented with different settings), restarted LR10.1 with/without GPU - same issue still.

It would help to have a screenshot of both states so we could compare them visually. Is that possible?

@Rikk sur. Here is a comparison if the image in zoomed view and original view - after screen capturing resized to show similar field of views. The right image is the correct one, at least showing exactly same colours in develop mode in different zoom states.

Interesting thing - just before zooming into the image in Lib mode, for a fraction of a second the image changes to wrong color in original size before zooming in and keeping the wrong color.

Have you rebuilt the preview for this file?

If you need anything else - let me know. The image has the "Adobe Vivid" Profile applied. I also just tried to rebuild the previews - no change. The color switch appears when the image zoom factor is of that size such that the image does not fit anymore completely into the view. The color is correct for any zoom factor which shows the complete image in the view, even if zoomed out a lot.

Tried the same on the MBP internal display with different color profiles - the same behaviour, it does not depend on the display nor the color profile chosen in the MacOsX Display settings.

If it is not a private image, you can share on Dropbox or similar.

Got it. 

I am not seeing a color shift in Library Loupe View from Fit to 100/200/400%

Thanks for testing, I am uploading a video showcasing the dynamic behaviour of the color switch: https://www.dropbox.com/s/l5i0ryxm3fki1f6/LibZoomColorBug.mov?dl=0

this is on the laptop directly, not on external display. As said, it happens to all display profiles and with all treatment profiles, with/wo GPU support. So maybe dependent on graphics adapter / operating system?

I am also experiencing this bug, on a 2020 M1 Macbook Air, both on the built in display and also now on an external display I just received today. The issues is not to do with monitor calibration, it's definitely a bug in the Lightroom Classic Library module. Zooming the image to any zoom level that is tighter than "fit" results in a major colour shift.

This only appears to be an issue in the Library previews, all exported images are rendered correctly. But it makes the Library Module almost unusable for image reviews, as I need to switch to the Develop module in order to maintain correct colours while viewing zoomed images.

I have tried Discarding 1:1 Previews, and then rebuilding them. I have also tried turning off GPU Acceleration. Neither solves this issue.

I never noticed this behaviour until recently, so it was either the 10.1 update, or Big Sur that caused this, can't be sure which.

@colin_judge I have exactly the same issue here.

Mac OS Big Sur last update
LR last update

Here is the picture in library "adapt"

Here is the 100% in library 

here is the picture in develop 100%

As you can see the 100 % library doesn't match.
Nevertheless the exported files are fine…

LR 10.1 is known for several rendering bugs that prevent versions didn't have.

Just found that at 100% view, colors are shown differently in the development module compared to the library module.

(dev seems to be correct).

This is true for both GPU off and auto.

Funny enough, zoomed out it's also correct in the Lib module.

@andix Try recalibrating the display in case the display profile is corrupt and make sure if an option exist not to build it in V4 spec.

@andrew_rodney I doubt it's the display profile as LR shows colors different in the same app?

I checked ICC profiles in MacOS--no change.

Also assume this won't we relevant as the LR application would always use the same profile.

Hello all, 

I am having the same problem you all are having.  I am using a late 2019 Macbook Pro with a Vega 20 GPU and EGPU Vega 64.  The issue is happening with both.  The camera I use is a Canon R5.  Whenever I zoom into a photo it strips away my edit to a flat RAW looking image.  This also happens in the "PRINT MODULE".   When zooming into an image by using the zoom check box for an 8x10 lets say, it strips away my edit.  I can confirm that it does not print this way thankfully!!

I also have the same issue, just upgraded to latest lightroom classic version and upgraded the library. I have Big Sur, 11.0.1. 

Macbook Pro 16 (2019)

Never had this issue before.

Regards

Dennis

The same issue on M1 and Big Sur 11.1, 

but as you can see from the screeshots, hiding the bottom filmstrip at 100% make the colors come back to normal, showing the filmstrip colors become false again.

I can confirm that 10.2 solved the issue and also speeded up the Library module on M1 CPU: before the update zooming in Library module was choppy, now it's as fluid as in Develop module.

I can confirm that I am having the same issue on my device as well. MBP 16" Big Sur 11.1, BenQ 3220U 4k monitor. It is only occurring for me when I am in library mode however, it doesn't occur while I'm in develop mode.

I'm having the same issue after updating my Macbook Pro 13" to Big Sur. Colors change when you zoom in in the Library module, but not in the Develop module. This is with previews that were created before and after the update.

Same issue for me. I'm almost certain this started with the upgrade to Big Sur. Zooming to 100% in Loupe View shows different (less saturated) colors than the develop module, and when fitting the image to the view in loupe mode.

iMac Pro (2017)

MacOS 11.1

Happens to me too! Clean install Big Sur on MacBook Pro, clean fresh install of Lightroom Classic today. Color desaturated and VERY different in Loop Zoomed view vs 100% Loop view or Develop view. In Develop zoom view functions normally. This started happening after last update 10.1 I guess. Adobe please FIX SOON, this is VERY ANNOYING!
