Thank you Riccardo for the conversion but this file is way to compressed.
Anyone know how to use a .png file in Davinci Resolve ?

I use png often. I prefer it especially if I need something with alpha. I do not have the same issue as I expect someone supplying the image files of any format to set the correct color space. There will always be a slight issue converting between color space and with how Rec 709 or Rec 2020 can display an image. But there is a burden of responsibility if a graphic designer or photgrapher is creating an image that they embed the correct sRGB flag if it is for use on computer screens or video timelines & screens.
I’ve also had to inform galleries that color correct display is also display depended and also player software dependent. The number of times I have had to remind clients that making it look right with Quicktime player on their laptop is their problem ,not mine, as I have no control over their particular settings and also if using QuickTime player, then all bets are off. If it is VLC then I have more trust that it can get close.
I do have Affinity on hand to send a problem image to be properly scaled, cleaned and CST’d and I almost always output as a png as it just works for me without jpg compression loss

Hello Michael, thank you for your experience feedback on the subject 🙂
So what do I do now ?
Have a beautiful day,

The png’s you uploaded are different size and pixel aspect, neither of them a typical standard. Without knowing where and how these images were created and where and how you are monitoring anything, I can’t offer any suggestions as the problem may be a monitoring issue, a render setting or a system/ timeline setting.
To identify a problem, it is vital to know timeline settings, system color management settings and how and where you are monitoring differences and then creating the images you uploaded to show the difference.

Hey Michael, thank you.
The image was created on Photoshop, and my monitor is an iMac 2017 with a retina screen.

Hey mate, I did some further testing. The png was exported in AdobeRGB. DaVinci can not interpret that without a plugin/DCTL. I attached a LUT that converts from AdobeRGB to sRGB. With that, you should get a proper visualization – it is working on my end

That is actually due to the mp4 compression at 1080p. I would suggest to set the quality to 40000 to ensure the best quality for web. Other than that, there is not much you can do, unless you export to 4K
