RGB Conversion Samples in GIMP

November 29, 2008 Comments Off on RGB Conversion Samples in GIMP

Opening a file in GIMP requires one to define the RGB working space for that image. The choices are to keep the embedded profile or convert to whatever option you have defined in your preferences. Gimp.org recommends using sRGB but my preference is for Adobe 1998. Of course none of these really mean that much without printed output but it is interesting to see the subtle display differences.

Bonus tip: When calibrating your monitor take off your glasses if you have lenses with anti-reflective coating as they make everything appear slightly green and you might set your display too magenta with them on.
