Re: AIM color space - Gamma 1.00

I've been poking around for this particular ICC profile and the link that everyone mentions seems to be dead now. Anyone have any idea where to get it from now?

You probably don't want to get it.

Timo is famous for his misinformation websites and ruining other people's work with his instructions (and his cooked examples, and trolling of forums, and ...).

Re: AIM color space - Gamma 1.00

Well I mostly interested in it not as a standard that I'm going to make my main profile but I've seen a couple of retouching tutorials that use it that I'd like that experiment with. However, the site doesn't seem active anymore and I can't seem to track down somewhere to download it from.

Re: AIM color space - Gamma 1.00

You can create a gamma 1.0 profile in Photoshop's color settings. Select "More Options" to show all the controls. Select an RGB profile as a starting point, then go to "Custom RGB..." and change the gamma value to 1.0. Then go to "Save RGB..." to save the gamma 1.0 profile you just created.

BE WARNED - if you are working in 8 or 16 bit/channel, gamma 1.0 probably isn't the right thing to be using. If you are working in 32 bit/channel, you are already using gamma 1.0 (because that's the only thing that makes sense for floating point values).

But I'm glad to see Timo's site gone. That'll mean far fewer confused people calling tech support with damaged color settings and images.

Re: AIM color space - Gamma 1.00

Or just avoid this as it makes little sense in terms of dealing with rendered images which require and need a TRC gamma curve (since our visual system and our output devices don’t deal with linear encoding). In a raw workflow, the data is linear because, well that’s how its captured (raw data is linear). The raw converters still have to send data to a display which isn’t linear encoded and an output device that isn’t linear encoded.

The color scientists at Adobe, Kodak, the ICC and elsewhere use gamma corrected working space for a reason guys. Move on, there’s far more useful stuff out there in imaging land to be concerned with than a linear workflow.
