I can not seem to figure out how to add output profiles to Darktable. I have used Terminal to search for the folders listed in 3.8 manual, but these folders do not exist in 4.2.1_arm64.dmg build. Is there a new output file location; where is this on macOS? I do not see any information in the 4.0 manual. Any help would be appreciated!
I would like to use/export files into eciRGB_v2_ICCv4.icc
3.8 manual instructions: $DARKTABLE/share/darktable/color/out
and $HOME/config/darktable/color/out (where $DARKTABLE is the darktable installation directory and $HOME is your home directory). The output color profile may also be defined within the export module.
The directory in question, color/out inside darktable’s configuration directory, does not exist when installing darktable.
You need to create those yourself if need be and then place the output profile you want/need into that directory. Once that is done it will be available for usage in the export profile section of the output color profile module. You need to do this when darktable is not running.
Honestly, if I read instructions to put something in a folder and that folder did not exist, I would expect that there had been an install problem, not that it’s on me to create the folder, absent any clarifying statement.
I’m surprised this is not implemented, or easier to add them. Unfortunately I am not as apt with working in terminal to add the folders if necessary.
This would also be helpful for adding preferred CMYK color spaces could be helpful if you are working with an offset press. And adding Display P3 (much larger in gamut than sRGB)…the new web standard as it is supported on most browsers and devices. I think this would be good for all DT users.
