Re: Some Tests ProPhotoRGB to sRGB vs working in sRGB

Things can change drastically when you "convert" depending on which rendering intent you use. You don't mention which rendering intent was used.

And as the other poster said, how can an image that is supposedly in sRGB color space being "converted" to sRGB have colors out of gamut for sRGB? That makes no sense.

I don't use LR, I use capture NX2/export to PS so have no idea what the "working" color space is for LR or really anything about LR. I do know something weird is going on in this workflow as far as color management.

I read your other post before I replied.

There is -no possible way- for an image that was actually developed or converted as a sRGB file to then include out of gamut colors for sRGB. Converting a sRGB file to an sRGB should do absolutely nothing. It may have been clipped or posterized from using the wrong conversion intent, but it can't have out of gamut colors in it. That's like saying you found 1.2 gallons of milk in a 1 gallon jug.

I'm not sure what you are doing wrong but those examples are a -good example- of a mixed up color management workflow.
