You cannot get from "sRGB as PCS" to LAB without first converting from "sRGB

This is the normal path from User_RGB to LAB: User_RGB -> XYZ -> LAB. Two

You want to take this path, yes? User_RGB -> XYZ -> "sRGB as PCS" -> XYZ ->
LAB. Four conversions, going through XYZ twice.

might be worth reiterating to keep the discussion understandable for
people not that deep in the topic]

Note that - as long as we're talking about linear RGB spaces (which pure
sRGB is not, but AFAIK we're talking about "linear RGB with the sRGB
primaries" here) - all but the last conversions in your chain boil down
to applying a matrix to a vector. You can easily multiply these matrices
together to build a matrix that does the first three conversions in a
single operation.

Simon, my apologies. Pippin has pointed out that I didn't repond to your email. Yes, I do realize that you can concantenate matrix conversions. I acknowledged that in a reply to Pippin, but I should also have acknowleged your input.

Again, my apologies. I didn't mean to ignore you.

Kind regards,
Elle Stone
