I've used the colour proof display filter with profiles I built witheye one spectrophotometer from GretagMacbeth. This allows be at least
to have the right colours on the screen while the photos I get frommydigital slr camera. This is one step in the right direction. But only
the display is affected: the output is left unmodified.
There's also things going into that direction. There are two enhanced TIFF plug-ins that work with color profiles and we will look to get this functionality included in the GIMP distribution.
For the more long-term future, support for other colorspaces than RGB and for more color-depth than 8bit/channel is planned and is actually already being worked on.
That is good news.
- As my camera support 12bits depth there will be more dynamic range to do the post-processing (together with dcraw from Dave Coffin).
- When I ask for prints to colormailer pro service they ask to have the colour space embedded in the file otherwise the pictures are "interpreted" by the lab and there is some colour shift.
