Lightroom classic version 9.3
Operating System
  1. Windows 10
Hey,
for a few weeks now Lightroom classic is shifting the colors of my imported pictures to a purple/warm color. In the libary they are all purple, the preview picture is purple, but when i want to edit it, it seem as the picture looks normal until I click the before/after button. Even if I didn´t do anything it is already changed (as shown in that picture). I reinstalled lightroom today and everthing is set to standart.
Thanks for any help :)

I would guess that your monitor profile is a bit off (maybe a Windows update changed things, as often happens). You can simply test this by changing the monitor profile to the standard sRGB profile to see if that "fixes" the problem. If it does, note that using sRGB is not the best long-term solution, to fix the issue properly the monitor would need to be correctly calibrated.

EDIT: Here's a link to a very old forum post explaining the procedure using Win7, but you should be able to figure out how to do it using Win10. If not, let us know and we show be able to point you in the right direction. How to assign an sRGB ICC Profile to your monitor (Windows)

If colour accuracy is important to you (and if you take photographs, it should be) the only way to be accurate is to calibrate the monitor yourself using a calibration device and the associated software. Popular devices are the i1Display Pro from X-Rite and the Datacolor Spyder, but there are others as well.
