Weird colors on full size photos

Post by HvTFoto » 15 Apr 12 15:42

If i choose to show a photo full size, the colors are way off. Color management works on thumbnails and on "best view". I've set color management in preferences (raw photos are Adobe RGB but I don't believe color profiles has a bearing on raw photos, tiffs are ProPhoto and jpgs are, normally sRGB). Profile for photos without assigned profile is left as default, sRGB). Are my settings wrong or why does the color management not work on full size photos?

Hans,

What camera are you using? You say that

That is correct, but it's about the embedded previews. Some cameras write the preview (which is a JPG) in the color space that the picture was shot.

Best would be if you could send me a sample RAW file from your camera so I can check it here

Thank you
Hert

I use Nikon D3s and D3x so the rawfiles are quite big. I'll send you a link so that you can download one D3s and one D3x file but I can't do that until I get home tonight. Both of my cameras are set to Adobe RGB (instead of the default which is sRGB).

Regards

Hans
