I think my problem is more with qtmonitorprofiler. You can only do a
blanket edit on in the value for each channel. There is no way to
adjust for the tone of the channel. It is similar to the old profile
editor that came with PS < 6 for OS9, but IMO, the way that rough
profiles are created in OSX is much more accurate for setting a monitor
profile, so you can adjust multiple points on the curve. With the way
that lcms is currently set up, you are just pulling on the midpoints.
Something that makes me a little uncomfortable doing color correction
on linux, that some may consider a strength, is the reliance on
profiles. I really just want to be able to calibrate my monitor
properly and run without profiles in all but my image editor. Without a
way to edit the standard profiles in (or outside of) Scribus, I feel
like I am leaving too much to chance. I don't use any of the standard
coated or uncoated Adobe profiles for printing.
In PS I use a profile that goes something like this: SWOP coated inks,
20% standard dot gain, UCR, black ink limit 85%, total 300. I find no
way to set up this profile for my images. I do use the standard Adobe
RGB (1998) profile for RGB. The thing is that unless you have a
colorimeter to set your own profiles for all your devices, you are
really just shooting in the dark.
What colorimeters work in linux, and what software do I use to create
my own profiles?
