Please don't forget to incorporate EXIF data into the show:

For quite some time, users will have to deal with incompatible and
especially simply incomplete implementations of color management.
Possibly that pain [1] can be eased if users are supported to specify
workarounds, like: 'camera xy' + 'filename starts with _' => AdobeRGB.
Sort of heuristic device drivers.

    the pure technical solution is to popup when inference fails.
