A more correct assumption would be "R'G'B'A u8", i.e. Thank you for explaining that, it was just what I suspected :) I'll see what happens when I make that change :) (apparently just one line, app/core/gimpprojection.c:391, is needed to be changed to implement this now :D) > gamma corrected RGBA. > > The long term goal is of course to make sure color space conversions are > correct throughout the whole image processing pipeline, taking into > account the current color profile of the image etc. So eventually we need to be able to construct on-demand babl_formats which utilize arbitrary profiles, and have babl depend on lcms to get a acceptably quick transform between those and the standard spaces? And recognize the use of standard colorspace profiles (eg sRGB, linear-light RGB) so we can get faster processing for them? David -- Reticience and self-censorship is a farce. The deceiver does not himself know the truth, anything that he holds back he holds back not only from others but from himself. Fuck censorship.
