Thanks Sean. I finally had time to check your file and indeed it displays correctly in 8.1.6.

It still displays wrong in 7.1.3, but it displays differently than the file without profile, so this must be the profile issue that was fixed in 8.1.3.

In other words, my problem is with the way jpeg file were generated. It would be nice if LC handled such files like Preview does or at least returned a warning that profile is missing.

Hi Robert

I have looked at this and it is reacting this way because a correct
CMYK colorspace profile has not been embedded into the jpeg file.
LiveCode, therefore, has no idea how to interpret the colors and
handles them in an almost raw state oversaturating them. Adding the
closest profile to its natural state helps, in this instance, US Web
Coated (SWOP) v2.

I've attached another source jpg to test with which has this embedded profile.

I just tested this in LC 8.1.6 and it shows the same problem as 7.1.3. I filed a bug report for the team to check into this, including the files.
Bug 20316.
