Color profile support

Top  Previous  Next

A color profile can be embedded in JPEG, PNG and TIFF images output by the raw converter. The color profile does not modify the image data in any way. Instead it adds information which defines the color space of the image and is used by some applications (e.g. Photoshop) for more accurate color reproduction. Separate color profiles may be assigned for linear and normal raw conversion. Color profiles are assigned in Preferences under the "Raw Conversion" tab.


If a display monitor color profile is assigned in Preferences the raw preview display will use the assigned raw conversion color profile to display accurate colors. This is very useful when adjusting the color balance or picking a custom white point. This is particularly important when converting Canon EOS-1D, 1D Mark II and 1DS raw files with color matrix 4 (AdobeRGB) selected.
