Re: [Gimp-developer] New Image/Color Management option

Is this how you think about all the people who use GIMP? That almost none
of them understands color management?

There are probably a few dozens of people in the world who really do
understand CM. It's one of those things where the more you know, the more
you don't know.

May I remind you of your product vision? ->

"GIMP is a platform for programming cutting-edge image processing
algorithms, by scientists and artists"

Do you really think, that these targeted audience, your targerted
audience, doesn’t know what color management is all a bout?

That's the reality.

So, this is how you think about your target users? They are clueless?
Your target users - professional artists and photographers - switch off
color management, because it’s confusing them?

People who are professionals still do crazy things like tagging a photo
with an ICC profile of a display. And yes, I know quite a handful of those
who found CM to be too complicated, switched CM off and "calibrated" their
output to work well with just one print shop.

So, may it be, that this - „all graphics artist you know … switch off
color management - is the real cause why GIMP doesn’t have a working color
management in 2016? You don’t know anybody who uses it and so you don’t see
any need to implement it?

Please calm down.

The sane choice way to let users disable it, rather than
forcing it upon them

Well, this may be the sane choice for _you_ but, please, don’t tell
others - your target audience: professional photographers, artists and
scientists -  what their sane choice has to be.

You are pretty much saying that it is wrong to force freedom of choice upon
people. This doesn't make any sense.
