Microsoft has confirmed that some users will encounter color rendering problems when using programs such as image editors after upgrading to Windows 11.

According to reports, a newly discovered bug in Windows 11 is that Windows 11 may prevent some image editors from accurately providing colors on certain displays (basically HDR). This happens when customers try to use a white or light background. If you are affected, your photos may appear dazzling yellow or different tones.

Microsoft confirmed that the error occurred when the Win32 API returned unexpected information or errors under certain conditions. This is a problem of Windows 11 itself, and updating third-party applications will not have an impact in most cases. According to the technology giant, Windows 11 errors will not affect all color management programs.

Microsoft expects that the coloring profile in the control panel and settings can run normally in a stable operating system.

Microsoft is expected to resolve the issue of HDR or image editing applications in a future version of Windows 11 that will be launched in January 2022. If you are a member of the Insider Program, you will have access to the fixes in the newer version. According to the feedback center report, when running these preview versions, the display color rendering error appears to have been completely fixed.
