Re: filmscanners: Vuescan: "device RGB"
My understanding is that, though without embedding it, this option uses the
scanner profile as selected in your graphics program in transferring the
image to the graphics program, and the graphics program would than embed
it's default/preferred color space in the image if it embeds such spaces as
I use it as I do not need an embedded profile since I use Corel PhotoPaint.

Subject: filmscanners: Vuescan: "device RGB"
| Has anyone figured out how to use this color space option?? VS's
| help file implies the resulting color space will be that of the
| "device", BUT the profile is not embedded. How would you convert to a
| Photoshop editing work space if the 'from' device space is not known
| or embedded??
| I was hoping this option would have allowed me to select an actual
| ICM which came with the scanner, or had been empirically created. It
| would seem to be the best color space for archiving the original scan.
| Actually, the Vuescan 'raw' scan is always the best choice for
| archiving ... but not necessarily for everyone. The use of this
| option is a mystery.
