I am a new Krita user and confused about the Color Management Settings.
I understand Krita cannot provide the more usual color profiles since they may be copyrighted. On the other hand, I have these profiles already and would like to make Krita do what I am used to in other programs. To keep it simple I tend to use sRGB IEC61966-2.1 for images and 2 monitor profiles made using DisplayCal and an xRite ColorMunki, one for each Display. I have a regular screen as Display 1 and a Cintiq as Display 2. Krita will usually be used on Display 2.
In Settings|Configure Krita|Color Management, Display tab:
"Use system monitor profile" is unchecked.
It lists "sRGB-elle-V2-srgbtrc.icc" for both Display 1 and Display 2.
If I check "Use system monitor profile", will it use the ICC profiles I created for Display 1 and 2, respectively (depending on which display Krita is running on) and ignore the ones with elle in the name. Seems like this would be the easiest way to get my calibrated monitor profiles.
If "Use system monitor profile" is unchecked, should I be specifying the appropriate calibrated monitor ICC profiles. (I can add these using "Add new color profile).
Under the General tab, there is a way to specify the color model, presumably for images. There does not seem to be a way to specify the ICC profile (which I would like to be sRGB IEC61966-2.1 for the RGB/Alpha color model). I have added this profile, and notice I can set it in the New file diaplog. It seems to remember it for the next time.
Before adding sRGB IEC61966-2.1, I used the default sRGB-elle-V2-srgbtrc.icc. I saved an image as PNG, checked to embed the profile. When opened in Photoshop, it said the profile was "sRGB built-in (8bpc)". I would have expected "sRGB-elle-V2-srgbtrc.icc", which is the display name for this profile. I don't understand this.
Thanks for the help.
