Image color altered heavily on upload

I’ve added two different yellow images, one is a webp and one is a jpeg. After uploading they’re both beige. What processing is done to images and can it be disabled?

I’ve confirmed it’s not just the view in the editor, they’re beige when viewing the image in the browser on the site.

This is a browser extension causing this in Brave.

Interesting! Glad you were able to resolve this. Would you mind sharing what browser extension it was and what about the extension was causing the color changes?

Sorry, spoke too soon. We’re seeing it in dark-mode only, also might be Chrome only? I don’t see the same color change in Brave. Also, still seeing it after disabling all browser extensions.

Chrome (Mac) Version 113.0.5672.92 (Official Build) (x86_64)

The image doesn’t appear to be altered, it’s just not displaying colors correctly in both the picker and also the visual editor.

filter: invert(1) hue-rotate(180deg);

Removing all the css rules inverting and un-inverting content fixes the issue. This might be related but I’m not sure why Brave would display dark mode correctly and Chrome does not if it’s based on Chromium.
