Color Management

Post by greenmorpher » Sun 24 Jun 2007 02:42

In the Preferences > Color Management > dialog, in "Rendering Intent" the options offered are "Perceptual", "Relative Colorimetric", "Absolute Colorimetric" and "Saturation".

In this context, what do those terms actually mean?

Also, what does "Freeway 3 Default ..." mean?

Cheers, Geoff

You can use rendering intents to show PL32 for what purpose your image was designed. It's not so easy to understand this, so I would suggest to search the web for more information.

I think it's a profile installed on your computer, isn't it?

Sigh! Okay, Gerhard, I'll try to find it on the net.

Not that I know of. I do still have Freeway, a web authoring program installed, but I didn’t know it had installed a color profile anywhere. Certainly I've never consciously used it and no other program has accessed it!

Lutz -- thanks for that lead. I'll chase it up.

Cheers, Geoff
