    Are you referring to the bighter spots on the forehead, nose, etc?

    Take a look to see which color profile your display is using in system preferences -> display -> color. By default it should be using “color lcd”. This will be the recommended profile for your display, and unless you’re sending photos to a higher end printer (which will have its own specific profile) the one you should probably be using.

    If you want to, post a link to the photo in question, and I can take a look at it on my machines here, unless you have a second machine to use to compare it. It might be that it’s just those photos...unless, of course, it happens on all of them. Where did you get your screen replaced?

    I had a professional change my screen at a local service center and paid for the screen for around 450$

    It's possible that something could be off on the screen itself, but I'd still lean towards some sort of calibration issue. The photo looks fairly flawless on my 2017 15"

    what macbook pro are you referring to and what year?
    Try an external display and see if it looks better than your screen, if not check back with the repair shop and show them the issue because the LCD they installed can be none OEM/defective

    Thank you all for your help, I went back to the repair shop yesterday and they changed the screen one more time as it seems he used an earlier version screen that wasn't compatible with the laptop (mine is a late 2015, he used an early 2015 model I believe) he changed it and it works perfectly now
