  • Not really so. Even ProPhoto RGB which is significantly larger can be used, within careful reason to edit in 8-bits per color. But considering nearly every modern capture device produces more than ...
  • On my NEC SpectraView, I can just see the difference between 0/0/0 and 2/2/2 in ProPhoto RGB. 1/1/1 is Lab 0/0/0 so that doesn't count, it is the same as RGB 0/0/0. In sRGB, I see a difference ...
  • Not a good idea, if the CMYK conversion recipe isn't targeted to the print process, you can be in a heck of a lot of problems with bad color on-press (talk about expensive). Best to provided ...
  • Yes it is, but in ICC aware applications, doesn't matter what the gamma (TRC) of a working space is, this is all handed with the understanding of that color space and with your display profile ...
  • That is generally the idea. At least if your goal is a good print to display match while soft proofing. As such, the calibration aim points (targets) need to be those that produce that match. Your ...
  • That would be a good idea due to it's unique 'gamma' value. It wouldn't make a big difference but I'd still go there, even with B&W. Andrew Rodney Author: Color Management for Photographers The ...
  • You should always test a workflow yourself but I'd suggest using ProPhoto RGB from raw, then converting to smaller gamut for the output need. You can see why and test this by viewing my video on ...
  • OK count them. Let's agree that there are more digital images for the web and the best color space for THAT output (today) is sRGB. As I've said a number of times, short of web output, sRGB is the ...
  • And I disagree (the size of the color space has no bearing here). The comment made has no basis in fact, can't be backed up or illustrated. The idea a wider gamut color space CAN reduce banding was ...
  • Nature of the beast. All RGB working space profiles are based on theoretical emissive displays. They are real simple too. We define them with three primaries (Red, Green and Blue) and a white ...
  • A modern wide gamut (Adobe RGB (1998)) display is pretty close. Mine (NEC SpectraView) has a gamut volume of 1,209,230, the gamut of my Imacon Flextight built from the Hutch color transparency ...
  • And the wrong answer in like the 3rd post: Not so. And in fact, very, very few printers even send more than 8-bits per color to the driver anyway, the app and OS have to support it (and that's one ...
  • It might be, depends on if you want to count all the web images where sRGB is actually useful. Outside of viewing images on the web and mobile devices, sRGB is always the inferior option going out ...
  • I believe that it should but you should test this yourself. Correct. Agreed. ProPhoto RGB is used with a slight variation for all image processing in the ACR engine. Even Adobe recommends this for ...
  • Great hardware, their software is OK depending on what you ended up with. But if it's getting the job done, that's all that counts. Andrew Rodney Author: Color Management for Photographers The ...
  • Is that's a statement that has any basis on facts you can provide, or you're just making stuff up? Yeah, that's what I thought. It's amazing the number of people who don't appear to have much ...
  • Replied in I'm sorry.
    Well in terms of what you're proposed, we agree. The burden of proof is on your end. I've provided the evidence and data. You haven't. End of story Phil.
  • Replied in I'm sorry.
    It wasn't advise? Plus I don't think what you're suggesting is correct either, just the opposite (use a wider not narrower gamut working space to avoid banding) and again, I've provided a way to ...
  • I'm a little confused. First off, when you load a profile for the display, the one you built or sRGB, it's normal to see the screen change. The LUT is being loaded. You don't want to be using sRGB ...
  • Replied in I'm sorry.
    If you can't, fine. I'll ignore your advise** (as others may wish to also). I've attempted to illustrate, certainly with an Adobe raw workflow, you can get the best of both worlds; wide gamut and s ...
