Will color-profile support ever be implemented in XnView?

Post by trondeh » Wed Aug 10, 2005 8:47 am

Hi!

XnView seems to be a great program. Unfortunately, it seems not to respect embedded color-profiles. Will this ever be implemented in a future version? If XnView could use the free lcms library (www.littlecms.com), it really should not be that hard to get it in.... With this in place, the XnView program would be really a complete professional image browser/viewer.

I agree.
It would be especially convenient while browsing images in different color spaces (AdobeRGB, sRGB, etc...) to see the colours correctly.

Yes, it's a big request, i would like to add it but not in 1.81, perhaps for the 2.00 release (as the full 16bits support ) :-)
