Export... removes ICC profile

Post by Hacker »

Hi,
XnView MP 1.0 64-bit.
Why does "Export..." to JPG not include the ICC profile of the original image if "Remove all Metadata" is not checked?

TIA

Hello Pierre,
I think Save as... also includes the ICC profile.
Is there a way then to "copy" the profile from the original image to the image after export, please? And is there any other metadata that is lost when using Export...?

TIA

The only way is 'batch convert'

Very strange. If I open a JPG image which includes an ICC profile and use Save as... to simply save it then it retains the ICC profile.
(Of course, "Keep ICC profile" must be checked in the JPG write options.)

If you mean Settings - General - ICC - Use ICC profile for monitor (slower), then yes, this is enabled.

yes right, when you use 'Save'/'Save as', the color profile used in the image is saved, not the original profile

'Export' should save profile too.

Not sure I understand - what do you mean by "profile used in the image" and "original profile"?
Also, so, you confirm the difference in saving using "Save as" and "Export"?
