I would be so happy if any of the color management wizzards here could help me figure this out...

Problem: Significant color mismatch of DNGs between PS CS3 and iView MediaPro.

My monitor is calibrated. CS3 seems to display colors perfectly - very neutral. When I view my DNGs in iVew they have a significant color cast. It drives me nuts. Please, help.

Information:
* Camera:Canon EOS 1Ds MkIII
* PC with Windows XP 64
* Monitor: Dell 30" WS
* iView v3.x
* Basic understanding of color management
* Monitor calibrated with ColorVision Spyder.
* Using Adobe DNGconverter to convert CR2 files to DNG, with large jpeg preview
* Importing with iVew catalog: Color match is checked. Use embedded previews checked.
* Both thumbnails and previews have color casts
* The iView function "Convert files" attaches an sRGB profile to the resulting jpeg. This jpeg looks terrible in Windows Pic/Fax viewer, but still PERFECT in CS3.

Variables:
* DNGs per definition do not have a color space. However, the preview is supposed to be in sRGB (at least "sort of").
* iView implements color management, but not for all kinds of images. For example, large previews are not color managed.
* Before calibration, my monitor had EXACTLY the same color cast now exhibited in iView!

I am totally confused here... Need some pointers!

Hi Johans,



The same issue is bothering me.

Did you find the solution?



Best,

James

Wow, I thought this thread was dead...



Answer: I am sorry to say that I did not find a solution. Actually, I do not think there is one. The color management in iView is very limited. Only certain kinds of images are displayed with color management considered.



So, I have learned to live with it. When I want to know how an image looks in a neutral environment, I open it in PS. Kind of ridicolous...



Does anybody know whether EM has the same limited color management?



Thanks,



Johan
