CorelDraw X8 here, color management configured as follow:
[Edit: please, move to CorlDraw X8 forum. Thanks!]
I have exported some pictures as JPEG with embeded CMYK color profile (the predetermined one).
Then, I create New document -> Import the JPEG image with attached CMYK profile. The program prompts me with the following popup window:
Question: Why does the program warn me that RGB color profile is missing as if the image could have 2 attached profiles? I mean: If the color profile of the imported image matches the system's default color mode, why does the system warn me that the image is missing the color profile of a different color system?
The same does not happen in the opposite case: If I export the image with an embedded sRGB color profile (the predetermined one) and re-import it into a new document, then the program lets pass it directly without asking anything in any pop-up window. This behavior seems quite logical to me, since the image profile matches the system default (and it doesn't ask me what happens with the CMYK profile, as if the image could have 2 attached profiles).
Do you think this is a bug, or am I missing something?
Happy new year.
That's normal just lazy programming
That bad. Color management is confusing enough.
Logically it makes sense but people who are not color management knowledgeable see something they don't quite understand. What's happening is the document you exported was only CMYK and has no RGB profile. When you imported it into a new document that has DEFAULT RGB and CMYK profiles the importation warning is showing the correct CMYK profile but acknowledges that there us no RGB profile. Like I said just lazy programming.
Ok, thanks David for answering.
