I am just beginning to inform myself about color profiles. From what I understood, there can be 3 different color profiles in the icc format, that play their role:
I got an ICC profile after I would have calibrated my monitor. This ICC I would set normally in gnome’s color settings, right?
Second I should “work” with a color profile (in my programs such like gimp) like AdobeRGB1998 to be sure to work in a standard color profile; is this correct?
2a. But, Question, why not using my Calibrated-Monitor-ICC in gimp?
- And third, for what is a printing ICC profile (such as an icc file I could download from a printing service). Is this just used (also) in my editing software like gimp or darktable, just for doing this thing called “Softproof”?
What color profile would I give “with” the jpg file when giving it to a print service? The AdobeRGB1998 one or that one of the printing service?
What color profile would you normally include in lets say a wedding photography, knowing that the couple will print the photos on some printing service?
Sorry for perhaps asking such newbie questions, but for me these are really basic question I never thought about.
Very kind regards
