Bug ID: 116846
           Summary: colour profile issues with edit view and PDF export
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: release
          Hardware: x86-64 (AMD64)
                OS: Mac OS X (All)
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Writer

Libreoffice for macOS seems to have 2 issues with colour profiles:

1. when viewing an inserted PNG image, the view shows paler colours than the
original PNG

2. when exporting PDFs (lossless images, pdf/a), the image in the PDF shows
overly saturated colours compared to the original

MS Word 16.11.1 for macOS shows consistent colours in the editor view as well
as the PDF export. 

See below for steps to reproduce including test images, docs and pdfs.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Take source docx which has inserted images, or create one as follows:
 a. create new doc in ms-word, insert test png p5_we_hsb_final.png, don't
 b. save docx - this is the source doc
2. open docx in ms-word, save as PDF (print not web for higher fidelity
3. open docx in libreoffice, save as PDF (lossless images, pdf/a)

Actual Results:  
4. observe the editor views in ms-word and libreoffice - note different colours
5. observe PDF (eg in preview) -  note difference in colours
6. observe original PNG image - note colours are the same as the ms-word editor
view and PDF export - but different to the Libreoffice editor view and PDF

Expected Results:
colours should be consistent across editor view and PDF export and the same as
the original image

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
see attached files to help reproduce the error

attached are:

1. source PNG image
2. source docx with inserted PNG image
3. PDF from ms-word
4. PDF from libreoffice
5. screenshot comparing editor views
6. screenshot comparing PDF views

All software is latest (MSoffice 2016, MacOS, LibreOffice).
