Suggestion: support voor ICC / color profile


Recommended Posts

  • 6 months later...

It seems i'm the only one who wants this feature ... :( Imho, adding this option will make p.net a serious candidate in comparison of photoshop etc. For serious working with a graphic program, you really need icc and icm (color profiles).

On one hand you have photoshop behind which stands an army of programmers and bussinessmen.

On the otherhand you have paint.net behind which stands Rick Brewster, his buddy Tom and a few other people (I think).

I think it unfair to compare the two programs, especially stating a colour management standard as the main difference...

Don't get me wrong, any kind of standard is a good thing since it allows for compatibility between different systems. I just don't think it is as important as you seem to think.

Not so important :( Did you ever see the difference between printing with and without ICC profiles? Even on the same system a tif appears quite different in a program with and without ICC. If you want to print (online or your own printer) / view / edit pictures in a serious way, you need this standard. I don't know a different standard who is widely spreaded like color profiles.

I didn't know who's behind p.net. But is the difference in programmers (army <> hobbyist) a real argument? I know little graphic programs (with one hobby programmer!) who has also ICC support.

Because p.net implemented layers (imho a far more difficult task then profiles!) i made this feautere request. I saw that the p.net team could code such a complex of bits & bites (layers). After that profiles would be easier. I thought.

Yes, the difference in manpower is a significant factor. I haven't even had much time lately to work on Paint.NET, nor has Tom, and Dennis is no longer part of the team (although he never did any code). If it were just myself without the time demands of my full-time job, then progress would be very swift. But that is not the case, especially because then I couldn't afford things like rent and car payments.

Also, Paint.NET just wasn't designed for professional workflows, which ICC definitely falls in to. We do have a bug filed for this as a feature, but it is a very low priority work item with no schedule associated with it.

As I said: there are also some small programs with only a few hobbyprogrammers with icc support. So, i think that's not the problem (ehmm i don't wan't to push you, its just a comment :) )

I think you guys do a really good job and are delivering a fine & good product! My goal with this topic was to try improve a good product into better.
