Illustrator turning all PNGs into negatives (with or without yellow background) after saving and reopening document
I'm on Windows 10 pro, version 21H1. The version of illustrator I have is 26.3.1.
When working on a document, CMYK or RGB, in illustrator with my Adobe color settings synced across all programs, all PNGs whether 16 bit or 8 bit turn negative. I've attached before and after screenshots.
I've never had this happen before and I work with PNGs everyday, I spoke to and adobe support rep yesterday and gave them an AI filer where I tested PNGs vs JPEGs out. JPEGs are totally fine, only issue is with placing PNGs and I rather place a PNG than put in a huge transparent photoshop image.
It happens to all PNGs, even the ones I've made via exporting a vector image as a PNG.
I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 27.0.1 which is available worldwide now.
Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.

Thank you for all the feedback. Keep it coming!
I’ve been linking them, not embedding! It doesn’t seem to happen when the image is embedded. I rather link for keeping file size down and ease of editing, and I keep my linked images close to my design document storage wise.
Do you embed them or keep them linked? I assume the former, because otherwise would mean Ai alters the source files... id doesn't happen, doesn't it?
