Actually, you're entirely right. If I assign an Adobe RGB profile to
the picture, then save it, and re-open it, THEN it asks me what to do
with the color profile, just like I expected it to. Apparently the
original file has the profile embedded in some different manner.
However, [big-brand commercial application] has no trouble determining
what the color space should be, even with the original files.

Nope, it says it's sRGB. Regardless of what it SHOULD be, it always
says sRGB (until I assign a different color space manually). This is

The files I'm working with right now are from my Pentax K-7 DSLR. The
JPG and TIF files it produces apparently have the color profile
embedded in a weird way, thereby keeping Gimp from seeing it. Now I
don't know how "weird" it is, since every commercial application I've
used has had no problems with it so far. It's only Gimp and Digikam
that are giving me trouble.
