For better or for worse, I have just published a new article: Color Management - a Walkthrough. It can be found at

So I reiterate. You describe a situation:

You've just taken a shot of a fire engine, and, behind the scenes, it is captured in the raw data. But you want an OOC jpeg to show Junior. ...

Who the hell is Junior ?

By the way, do you like it better now?

Haven't really poked through it looking for changes. Good that you added Bruce Lindbloom's site. Have seen a place or two where it seems that you may have re-worked the language a bit.

The nitty-gritty of when color-management really matters most is (perhaps) where it fails to exist. Thus, the matter of many image-viewers and browsers still not recognizing and making the necessary adjustments pertaining to the display monitor's color-profile becomes a case by case miasma to attempt to discover information about and to subsequently decode.

Every time that I have endeavored to research color management on the interent (particularly with respect to internet browsers), I have become nauseated with the plethora of incomplete and sometimes conflicting (complicated by particular version-dependent) "information".

The mentality where it comes to in-depth and relevant information surrounding browsers is largely one where "the new" is all that is perceived to ever matter. Add that to the fact that all too little in the way of web-pages are identified by their date of creation (or last editing), and a real live mess that approaches useless (for the lone internet researcher) can rapidly evolve ...

Yes, I fail completely to understand why the "browser situation" hasn't been cleared up.  The issue has been known for a long time, and FireFox has shown that it can be solved.  Since a great deal of photographic display is now taking place on the web (and it is growing all the time), the issue is one of real significance.

As to the nausea, yes indeed.  It really is a head-banging, stomach-turning situation.
