Re: Adobe Color Space: Not So Good

Hi Matt,

Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, but I find your instructions nearly incomprehensible.
Sounds very complicated.

Nanosec,

Thanks for the link.
What an excellent explanation of the custom curve thing.
Why isnt this disscussed in the D70 manual?

Thanks again.

I tried opening the images in Adobe RGB and sRGB.
They still looked pretty grim.
Guess I'll stick with sRGB until I figure out the custom curve
thing further.

They don't look too bad.

I had a similar problem, shooting in Adobe RGB, saving to jpeg, and
my viewer Acdsee wouldn't recognize the profile so the colors
looked dull and lifeless.

Solution: in Photoshop, go to Image, Mode, Convert to Profile, and
select sRGB, then save. Or just shoot in sRGB.

For the custom curves here's the url with instructions and curves:

I prefer the EV3 v3.4 curve.

Good Luck
