Re: [Gimp-developer] GIMP and Adobe RGB (1998)


Using, internally, a reference unbounded color space (or two: one linear,
one perceptual, with, possibly low precision shadows for speed), and
converting in and out of it when an image is imported or exported is a sane

Deviations from the "standard internal color space(s)" should be motivated
by the operation being performed, not by the color spaces of the initial
and final results (which may or may not belong to the same ones in any

There are, no doubt, situations in which alternate internal color spaces
could give better results. But catering to these corner cases is likely to
cause endless headaches for developers and bring no benefit whatsoever to
99.999% of users.
