Hi Ben,

That is a really useful and interesting article ... many thanks!  I may not
profile my camera, but I'm certainly very interested in getting the whole
colour management workflow right, and your article explains things in a way
that makes sense to a person like me (ie an engineer turned photographer
with no knowledge of colour theory or practice).

...I guess that's my cue?

I haven't tried to do anything with Windows, so I might not be an ideal
source. However, I have a too-long and slightly outdated document here:


that both describes conceptually how everything works and lays out a
workflow that can be adopted to dcraw (the original free raw development
software) and anything that traces its ancestry to it.

I've almost got all the pieces assembled for what I'm hoping to be a much
better way of profiling cameras, but I don't want to get ahead of myself
until I know for sure that it works and actually *is* better. "Stay tuned,"
as they say....
