Color managements prefs


Hi Alex,

Do you mean the "Mark out of gamut colors" option under soft proofing? That would only work if the following were true:

1. The user picked the current editing color space as the color space for soft proofing.

2. LCMS soft proofing would need to show out of gamut colors when the source and destination color space have the same bounded color gamut, which currently is not the case. Leastways right now I'm looking at an image with hugely out of gamut channel values, with the appropriate soft proofing settings in Preferences. Not a single pixel is marked as out of gamut.

3. For cases where the user has chosen linear precision, LCMS soft proofing would need to work properly for linear RGB, which currently is not the case. As an aside, for using LCMS for soft proofing and gamut checks, it would be better if the RGB values sent to LCMS were at "perceptual precision", regardless of what precision the user has chosen.

Even if LCMS soft proofing changed in the future, the gamut check doesn't differentiate between clipped/oog shadow colors and clipped/oog highlight colors.

Using LCMS to check for out of gamut colors does slow down the speed at which GIMP can display changes in the image made while editing.

Also going into Preferences is a bit cumbersome for something the user might not want to leave permanently activated. Buttons/checkboxes similar to what the raw processors use would be very much more convenient.
