As I was interested in accuracy of some working- and output profiles, I did a test with some of the “most important” ones (from Argyll-CMS, color.org, Elle Stone and RawTherapee). I used Argyll-CMS’ tool “xicclu.exe” and color.org’s “ICC Profile-Inspector” to examine and evaluate them. My inspiration was:
The good news is: they are all “well behaved”.
But RawTherapee’s profiles are “my” favorites, because they have TRCs (tone response curves) with 4096 points instead of 1024 by all others.
I created a spreadsheet for better overview. If you want, you can download it here:
CP-Evaluation.zip (61,6 KB)
Inside the ZIP you’ll find the same spreadsheet with
.ods extension for LibreOffice,
.xlsx for Excel 2007-365 and
.xls for Excel 97-2003.
Scroll to the right for overview, the first column is fixed.
I renamed the “Large” profiles (by Elle and RT) back to “ProPhoto”, for better overview.
Unfortunately xicclu.exe issn’t compatible with V4-profiles and ICC Profile Inspector only shows basic informations of V4-profiles. So some lines of the V4-profiles are empty…
Maybe someone is interested in that stuff and maybe it will be useful for someone other.
