0.90: ICC support in compare images

Post by Giuse » Sat Aug 11, 2018 8:33 am

XnView: MP 0.90 - 64 bit
OS: Windows 10 64 bit

When comparing images, XNView MP does not use the ICC settings (usage of system color profile)

CHeers and congratulations for the super program!

Hi, you need a wide gamut monitor: in that case a JPG file is shown with too saturated colors when ICC profiles are not used, and that's what happens with most programs (FastStone, Microsoft Photo..) except XNView that can handle ICC profile so colors appear correct in XNView.
The same photo when displayed in the compare view with another one in XNView has again too saturated colors, that means there is some problem in ICC handling.
The test I did with a wide gamut monitor: opened a reference photo in XnView and it is fine, then launched a second instance of XnView and opened the same photo together with another one in the compare view - the reference photo appears slightly with different colors in the two instances of XnView (differences are more visible as much the display has a wide gamut, at least 70% of AdobeRGB).
Is it more clear now?
cheers
