my question regards the different treatment of embedded profiles in PhotoShopElements13 and RT 5.2.
I have 2 images from my scanner created from the same scan. Both were saved by the scan program in Adobe RGB colour space. One has no profile embedded, the other has the Adobe RGB profile embedded (the program provides this choice). Both images are identical on the pixel level, when I subtract them in imageJ. When I open them in PSE and save them again as Adobe RGB the images are again identical (PSE was set up to interpret the embedded profile in both cases). However, If I open these images in RT using the default profile (i.e. “use embedded profile” in the colour management tab) with no changes applied whatsoever, the images come out different.
Does anybody know, why this is so?
Many thanks in advance and best wishes
