    Farbraum in Lightroom 5

    Momo13

      Ich habe von Lightroom 3 auf 5 upgedatet. Seit dem sind mir Farbunterschiede zwischen Entwickeln und Biliothek bei Bildern mit großem Farbumfang aufgefallen. Welche Farbräume werden in den beiden Modi verwendet?

          Develop uses linear ProPhoto (ProPhoto primaries, but gamma 1.0). Library uses Adobe RGB jpegs.

           

          If you can see any difference between them, that's normally an indication of a problem with the monitor profile.

           

          A wide gamut monitor does extend very slightly beyond Adobe RGB in some colors, and so could be able to show a small difference in gamut between those two. But it would be more theoretical than practical. I'd go after the monitor profile as prime suspect.

           

          With a standard gamut monitor, there's no way you should see any difference.

            Thanks for your Answer twenty_one. The Monitor (ASUS P246q) is a wide gamut display and I use the ICC profile from ASUS. I see only a difference on pictures with extended colors. So, if I understand you right, that's normal.

             

            How does it work in Lightroom 3? There, I never saw a difference between Develop and Library.

              Manufacturer-supplied monitor profiles are notoriously inaccurate and outright defective. They simply cannot be trusted. Do yourself a favor and buy a good calibrator, and this problem should go away. Yes, it's an added expense, but once you've made the (small) investment you'll never look back.

               

              Good candidates are x-rite i1 Display Pro, ColorMunki Display, or Spyder 4 Elite or Pro (the Spyder 4 Express uses the same sensor, but the software is too limited to be useful).

                Just in case you misunderstood what I wrote...

                ...let me rephrase that:
