do you consider global gamma adjustment useful at all? It means that
everything on your screen, inlcuding the GUI and also the content
displayed in your web-browser, image viewer, PDF viewer ... is
gamma-corrected. IMO this is questionable since most software assumes
an uncorrected display. Shouldn't gamma correction take place at the
application level instead so that it is only applied to images that
specify a gamma correction?
Please excuse my ignorance, I am trying to understand what's really
needed for professional image manipulation and so far I understood
that global gamma correction is not desirable.
