Re: Your best Color Correction in Photoshop

Not only is the output colourspace still undefined when we are using these tools in LR, the output rendering intent hasn't yet happened either. So absolute colour values would not even apply reliably, AFAICT, if we did have them - except within the context of a (softproofed) preview which stipulates a particular output colourspace etc.

just to update this for Lightroom 4: I have just noticed that when Soft Proofing is toggled on, the colour readouts under the histogram do indeed change from relative percentages (0-100), to absolute values (0-255).

If the softproofing is set to sRGB, you get a preview of the sRGB values. If set to AdobeRGB, you get a preview of the AdobeRGB numbers. And if set to a print profile, you get not only a visual preview, but also a numerical indication of the results of the ink-paper interaction.

All I need now is a fast enough computer to make it happen quickly and smoothly
