I have just stared using darktable and Gimp on Windows 8.1 I have some confusion regarding ICC profiles. There are several areas in Gimp where I guess I need to use the ICC profiles in order to properly print photos that I have edited in darktable.
Under EDIT in Preferences I see Color Management. Then I see Soft Proofing Profiles under Soft Proofing and CMYK profile under Preferred Profiles. I know I need to pick a CMYK profile for the Preferred but not sure about Soft Proofing Profiles.
Now, I have downloaded Adobe ICC profiles. Are these the profiles I need to pick from, and if so , how do I know which ones to use?
I’m using a Canon Pixma Pro-100 to print so I’m not sure if I need any type of profiles for that installed in Gimp or not.
Sorry about the lengthy question, but I’ve switched from film and this is all mew to me. Some of the videos I have watched are good as far as how to use the profiles in GIMP, but not too good about explaining the profiles themselves.
