Actually, the color shift occurs when using Photoshop as the external  

In a Rev stack,
Get the rgb values of the top-left pixel of an image.
Right click on an image, choose external editor as Photoshop.
Make an edit, note the exact rgb values the top left pixel, then close  
to update the image in Rev.

Now you will see a slightly different rgb values than Photoshop  

 From what I remember, this shift is relative and not the same offset  
for each r,g,b channel.
