Does this correction happen in hardware? Anyway I though the Huey was
a stupid device... As in just a passive sensor... Since it has no

I've uploaded some sample files here:


It's the original ti3, all the generated profiles, the profiles are
named as the options used for colprof. I also converted some JPEGs
using jpegicc from lcms...

Please note that only the single shaper matrix profile looks good on
my screen... Even the multiple shaper matrix looks a bit greenish..

I'd appreciate any pointers to what might be the issue...
