0.96 - Batch convert tool : preview buggy with ICC convert

Post by Gwenael Q. »

Before everything, thank you for XnViewMP , wich is a great tool !!
My first post here, I hope it is not a duplicate !

Bug description :

XnView: MP 0.96 - 64 bit
Windows 8.1 64bit

Effect : Images preview "before" and "after" doesn't display what they should in Batch convert tool > "ICC convert" if "ignore embedded profile" is checked.

For the Images preview, the embedded profile is NOT ignored. Please note that, nevertheless, batch convert tool does the job as expected : embedded profile is ignored as wanted.

To reproduce:

Preliminary steps : Bug is much more easy to see with an image whose colors are in WhackedRGB space color. One can be downloaded here (zip file) : http://www.gballard.net/photoshop/pdi_d ... #downloads. The image name is "PDI_Target_WhackedRGB.jpg". If embedded profile is ignored the image will display very wrong colors (strong blue-purple cast), otherwise colors are natural.

1. XnviewMP Settings > General > ICC > "use ICC..." checked
2. Select an image (here : PDI_Target_WhackedRGB.jpg) : image shows natural colors
3. Tools > Batch Convert > action > ICC convert... :
Input profile : empty
Output profile : empty
Ignore embedded profile : checked

Actual behaviour (bug): preview images doesn't show strong cast : embedded profile not ignored .

Expected behaviour: preview images should ignore embedded profile : strong cast should be visible (as it is on converted image once the batch conversion is done).



Thank you for listening

yes right the preview is not correct, but if you convert the file, output file is ok, right?

Hello,

Output is OK, but the preview is not. Wrong preview is worse than no preview ;-)

Thanks
