While trying to find out where my color space disappeared in my workflow (spoiler: Gimp export) I also found something weird in Darktable. As I’m not sure it a bug or a lack of understanding on my side I thought to first ask here.
My camera (Sony A65) can produce raw files in AdobeRGB. When processing such a file I set the output color space in darktable explicit to AdobeRGB and leave the setting “Export profile” in the the export module to “Image setting” expecting the resulting TIF or JPG to have the exif info for this color space:
Color space: Uncalibrated Interoperability: R03
But, after exporting the resulting file from Darktable, the color space is set to sRGB while the Interoperability is still R03.
Setting the “export profile” in the export module explicit to “Adobe RBG” I DO get the expected uncalibrated/R03
So as it seems the export profile “Image setting” does something different from what I expect and the output color space module in Darktable doesn’t really do anything at all?!
Anyone who can shine some light? Thanks!
