Color Management Settings¶
Default Color Model For New Images¶
Choose the default model you prefer for all your images.
When Pasting Into Krita From Other Applications¶
The user can define what kind of conversion, if any, Krita will do to an image that is copied from other applications i.e. Browser, GIMP, etc.
- Assume sRGB
- This option will show the pasted image in the default Krita ICC profile of sRGB.
- Assume monitor profile
- This option will show the pasted image in the monitor profile selected in system preferences.
- Ask each time
- Krita will ask the user each time an image is pasted, what to do with it. This is the default.
When copying and pasting in Krita color information is always preserved.
Use Blackpoint Compensation¶
This option will turn on Blackpoint Compensation for the conversion. BPC is explained by the maintainer of LCMS as following:
Allow LittleCMS optimizations¶
Uncheck this option when using Linear Light RGB or XYZ.
- Use System Monitor Profile
- This option when selected will tell Krita to use the ICC profile selected in your system preferences.
- Screen Profiles
- There are as many of these as you have screens connected. The user can select an ICC profile which Krita will use independent of the monitor profile set in system preferences. The default is sRGB built-in. On Unix systems, profile stored in $/usr/share/color/icc (system location) or $~/.local/share/color/icc (local location) will be proposed. Profile stored in Krita preference folder, $~/.local/share/krita/profiles will be visible only in Krita.
- Rendering Intent
- Your choice of rendering intents is a way of telling Littlecms how you want colors mapped from one color space to another. There are four options available, all are explained on the Icc profiles manual page.
