XnViewMP abnormal color rendering

Post by sybarix »

Color rendering in XnViewMP seems to be different from other programs. Notably, different what what I edited. The left is how it should look like, and the right is XnViewMP. XnViewMP seems significantly more contrasty than intended, and with a reddish cast. Custom ICC profiles are not used. Any ideas? Thanks.

Do you use a color profile on the Mac?

No I don't. I also tried changing true tone/night shift just in case, but those are global settings as expected and do not result in the side-by-side differences seen.

The image seems too large to attach here and the .icc file can't seem to be attached either. I've uploaded both to dropbox at the following link:

The .icc profile seems to be the default one used in my M1 Mac 14".

If not the profile, any ideas on what might be the issue? Only seems to happen in XnViewMP for some reason. Opening it in the browser or in mac preview shows the image as it was edited.
