I can't get color management to work under macOS

Post by UrbanCoyote »

I simply can't get color management to work under macOS.

I'm running a wide gammut benq.
It's been calibrated via palette master.

Preview, finder, Affinity photo, lightroom and capture one all display the image the same - only XNViewMP displays it overstatured.

(much like when I was on windows, un color managed apps displayed my images oversaturated).


The problem is, that even though ICC is turned on in XNViewMP, none of the options have any effect on the outcome.

Is this a known bug? If not, I can submit a bug.

I'm running Ventura 13.1 on an M1 and using XNViewMP 1.4.1 univeral build (although this has happened with previous builds too)

Yes, the ICC profile is generated by BenQ's Pallete Master and this is selected in XnViewMP.
