opRGB


Recommended Posts

I used PdN (currently v4.15) to make a layout of 4 images on a page, each on a separate layer.  Started with all TIFFs, AdobeRGB (Olympus camera profile) then added white and brown-ish colored layers (blended).  When I saved-as, the resultant TIFF shows the color space as opRGB (per Qimage Ultimate).  The image loads fine in FastStone Image Viewer, but is corrupted/won't display in IrfanView, Olympus Viewer 3 (raw conversion), Nikon View NX-i, Topaz Studio, or Affinity Photo.  A preview JPEG (?) does display in ExiftoolGUI.  And, fortunately, it does open in Qimage, since it is for print purposes.  (In FSIV, there is no EXIF data showing.)

I tried to find info on opRGB, it's there, but way beyond my understanding.

Any clues as to what is happening?   It only occurs after using PdN.  I tried to find way to change the export color profile in PdN, but there doesn't seem to be one.

FWIW, I use FSIV for image management, but like to use Irfanview for higher quality viewing and EXIF viewing (FSIV shows limited EXIF data).

Greetings George,

I am using the current version of PDN and I save as TIFF most of the time.  I use Irfanview and the Olympus Viewer v3 and have no trouble viewing my TIFF documents. When I check the properties of my TIFF; I get standard RBG. Maybe the Qimage Ultimate software has change the ICC profile for the printer and monitor also. Has there been any patches for the software or any updates for the monitor or video driver that need to be made. Does switching to an ICC profile  pre-Qimage Ultimate condition fix things? Does running the Printer or Program Compatibility Trouble shooters fix things? You may want to give it a try.

After that Goto: the Control Panel and select Color Management and then the All Profiles tab. Look to see if a sRBG or opRBG profile is among the rest. I don't think that you have a PDN problem, but a Color Management problem.

No edits were done in Qimage, so that didn't cause any issue.  I noticed the issue prior to opening in Qimage, when I attempted to open it with Irfanview.

 

There is no opRGB profile in Windows (\System32\spool\drivers\color\).   Or anywhere else on the computer.  Already looked there.

 

I can switch between FSIV, OV3, Affinity, Topaz Studio, making edits, and this problem hasn't never come up.  It's only after editing in PdN, although...

 

I'm leaning towards the problem being in Topaz Studio.  I'll have to test this in a day or two (i.e., go through my entire editing flow without TS) and see what I get.  I'll also try the QU forum and see if they have any clues.

 

Thanks for the reply,

Have you attempted any of the other recommendations?

You do realize that since opRBG shows up in the color space nfo; that some how its profile is involved in the issue that you are having.

Since PDN does not use profiles or Color Management; and saves bitmaps to standard RBG format, where you are getting the opRBG color space in your properties is a big mystery.

 

Good luck and have a Happy New Year!
