Bridge to PS not matching

I don't know what I've done. Looks like everything is in sRGB, but something's wrong somewhere. Help? Something is obviously wrong since Bridge looks much more saturated than photoshop. I'm not even sure I've posted this correctly.

**I have a PC laptop running Windows 10 and Photoshop CC17. It is under 12 months old, and has 16GB of RAM. Its hard drive has 625GB free out of 979GB. The last time I shut down was just before posting this thread. I run a cleanup program about once a month.

Son of a... I just found another post addressing what I think is the same issue. Off to read it now. I swear I searched before posting.

I've checked color space and everything I could think of. Not enough coffee in the world for my brain to problem solve today. Could it be calibration related? I dont understand why it would look different between the two programs on the same screen if both are in sRGB.

Sorry, I meant ACR. Bridge is about the same. I don't know if I have been staring at this for too long or what. Can you see the differences or is it just me?srgbcolors2.jpg

Just for funzies I tried another image. I still see it a big difference. I calibrated about 3 weeks ago, still using the Spyder 4. srgbcolors3.jpg

Interesting, so Photoshop is the odd one out, eh?

Have you checked Photoshop's Color Settings (in the Edit menu) to make sure they're still on "North America General Purpose 2" the way they should be?

Darn it.  You're a troublemaker, Jess.

Do you have an external monitor attached, or is it just your laptop screen?

They seem to match on the laptop screen, it's not an IPS display though so I can't edit there. What is happening?!

I hooked up a random monitor we had here in the house. I don't understand this at all. thirdcrappymonitor.jpg

Gee, interesting.

I think your next step has to be recalibration of the external screen.  It might even be worth doing this first.

Will do. Have to pick the kids up from school soon, so it will be a bit before I can get back here with results. Thank you so much!

Alright. I uninstalled (including completely deleting the Datacolor folder), restarted the computer, reinstalled the spyder software & recalibrated (using your page with instructions). I was too frustrated to deal with it yesterday, so I did all that this morning with a clear head (trying to avoid violence :D). I have nicer colors.. I guess I needed to calibrate again. I think my monitor is dying. I used to be able to wait longer between calibrations, but it was off only after maybe 3 weeks. Possible good news, I have a new monitor coming tomorrow sometime. But I would like to rule out any other problems that may be causing this so I don't set up the new toy & only have the same thing happen. Anyway, after calibration and everything, I am still getting the same results.

Seems if I decrease the saturation by -13 and vibrance by -8, it matches up from ACR to PS. Are there settings in ACR somewhere that would automatically change that before opening that I could have changed at some point?

Haven't printed these, haven'e even gotten to edit them yet :(. I'll pull up one that I have printed really quick and see what happens.
