Re: Does Melissa "Gloss Over" Image Noise ?

They will also discover that the numerical values of RGB color readouts at low levels are erroneous.

The only apparent work-around would be to use sRGB color-space as the working color-space (if using Adobe Camera RAW, whereas Lightroom users are not afforded such color-space options).

As I understand it, Melisa is essentially ProPhoto RGB with an sRGB gamma, but it is not sRGB.  It's also not clear in what sense the RGB color readouts at low levels are "erroneous."  They are what they are, and as long as they are converted meaningfully into the output space, it doesn't make too much difference how they're used as a working space.  I would assume that the ProPhoto RGB output space is legitimately ProPhoto RGB.

As to using sRGB as a work-around, I wouldn't want to limit myself to that in many circumstances.
