  • I agree with your premise completely in terms of the differences in data, but it is worth pointing out that bit depth and dynamic range are totally separate entities and a larger bit depth doesn't ...
  • Off whenever possible. Of course when you're viewing a print next to the display, you must properly illuminant that print while viewing a soft proof to see that they do match. The blackest black ...
  • ProPhoto RGB. Note that depending on the gamut of your display and the original data, you may not see all those colors but they are indeed there. The gamut of a working space or output space and ...
  • There should be zero effect IF no outside ambient light enters the instrument and indeed it's very consistent (few are at a low price point) but this will affect the perception of the user! And ...
  • It's important to understand this is all just math and often has no basis in reality. Don’t confuse a color number, a device value, as a color you can see! Shoot a gray card with raw + JPEG, the ...
  • Yes you can . The RI doesn't change the effect of the disconnect between working space gamut and output gamut shapes and further, even with a perceptual RI, there is still gamut ...
  • Dark is best always even after calibration ! Ambient conditions cannot be too dark, can be too bright. Changing light conditions is no good either! Read this: http://www.luminous-landscape.com/tuto ...
  • In terms of the display. It's the weak link. Yes, there are colors in the data rendered from raw you can't see but you can print them! So, do you clip to colors such you see them all for the ...
  • If the scanner has a spec like 600x1200, the first is the true optical resolution, so use that first value. If you don't think you'll make huge enlargements, you can go smaller. If you want to ...
  • What David may want to know, if he's still interested in following a proper test as you have provided is that the -3 setting has zero effect on the raw. Only the JPEG. He needs to understand that ...
  • A TIFF would be preferable but it sounds like you have no choice. If you do all the big editing moves in the scanner software, don't further edit the JEPG (saving each edit degrades it), you ...
  • Thanks, for a minute I was wondering if I wasn't clear or if I was off base about David's testing methodology (I'm waiting for the morning coffee to kick in). Seems not, he's based his opinions on ...
  • Very much so. You can test this yourself with a file I've prepared and a video: The benefits of wide gamut working spaces on printed output: This three part, 32 minute video covers why a wide gamut ...
  • Sorry, that's wrong. Do you really want to know why we use working space like ProPhoto RGB? There are way, way more colors that can be defined in something like ProPhoto RGB than you could possibly ...
  • Your testing and observations are flawed. You have only proven you can edit a JPEG and this has zero bearing on what you could do with a raw! That's not true since you didn't produce a raw. Your ...
  • Don't use that product but from what I've heard, that is correct, it doesn't use ProPhoto RGB primaries (gamut) for processing. Pointless to convert from Adobe RGB to ProPhoto.
  • The title of the tread and question sum it up: Lightroom CC 2015 Anyone disappointed ...
  • Misery loves company question? :-) If I tell you yes, I'm disappointed in some areas (GPU support is buggy, Face Detection can't rescan a folder) but happy with some feature (HDR/Pano), I'm not ...
  • David, due to the OP's question I think it is about the raw. As I wrote, I don't think anyone is arguing you can't edit the camera JPEG to produce something closer to what you wish. I originally wrote:
  • You didn't provide a raw that I can see. Did you? And how are we to know how well you rendered that raw data? Provide the raw. There's no argument that what you did was take a camera JPEG and make ...
