Colorspace comparison

By Doug Nelson (doug) on Sunday, May 20, 2001 - 01:12 am:

I did this for another group I subscribe to (gad, I feel so unfaithful), but I thought maybe there was a colorspace guru here that might have some meaningful input:

The topic was "does converting from one colorspace to another destroy data?" but feel free to make any colorspace contributions you feel like.

I have had some experience with color spaces but I work for a local newspaper & most of our problems stem from CMYK images & not RGB images. But I can say through hard experience that in my case I have received images at work that have an ICC profile embedded to another CMYK setup & overwriting our own Separation setup & when the job is printed the colours are nothing like what they were on the screen. It has become so bad that our organisation has put a freeze on upgrading to anything above Photoshop 4 until the problem is resolved although apparently Photoshop 6 has resolved a lot of these problems. My main fix is to convert these images back to RGB & then convert them to CMYK in our Separation colorspace. It means a little bit of extra work in correcting the image as all this converting to & fro to different modes can sometimes degrade an image quite a bit. I must stress these are usually contributed images like emails etc.
