Original ICC profile sometimes embedded in exported file even after converting to built-in sRGB
GIMP version:2.10 (and 2.9)
Description of the bug
After RAW edits are made to the original source image, a ProPhotoRGB TIFF of the image is used for GIMP processing (and printing through TurboPrint). ProPhotoRGB prints well, but is not viable for web access, so the GIMP TIFF file is converted to GIMP's sRGB color space and then exported as a jpg.
The sRGB jpg does not display correctly on the web because the color profile is still identified with the image (this is seen by opening it with a text editor).
The workaround is to (1) convert the TIFF to sRBG, then (2) export as jpg and disable EXIF, XMP, IPTC values. Then the exported image can be viewed correctly on web platforms.
Is the bug reproducible? Always.
- Open ProPhotoRGB TIFF
- Convert colorspace to sRGB
- Export as jpg and view on web, or browser.
Expected result: correct color represented in sRGB
Actual result: poor color
I have reviewed this bug with Elle Stone, and she has reviewed the files, the workflow, and agrees. You may need to view in Google Photos or Drive, as gitlab seems to manage the color better than standard web architecture.
