Re: No more Icc profile embedded with photos ?
First of all, thanks for the link! Really Interesting!
For the ArgyllCMS example... I'll try to create a short description in
the Wiki and will post the process of the work here later on.
But the conclusion of the blog is something, I would not sign (don't
know, how to express that in english, hope I could make me understand...)
I'm quite happy with my full color-managed workflow under debian and if
you are interested, please read on for a short description:
I was using FreeBSD and Linux exclusively for years, till I switched
from the analog photography one day to digital. I didn't found an
application environment which (I thought) filled my needs. So I decided
to install the Windows Operating System on a seperate Harddisk to go
there with Capture NX. But after 2 Years of using it, I didn't want to
switch between different Operating-Systems with dual-boot and the used
Application for image-editing was slow and could really support a bit
better my workflow, which was "well-trodden" in the meantime.
Than I stumbled across *bibble*, I tried it for the time of the
evaluation period and with the yield of 2 or 3 football-events and was
really exalted. Really fast and my workflow with bibble wins a lot. (and
color-management is possible). So I switched to bibble and till than, I
have now again a linux-only box for my day to day work.
Things that couldn't be done with bibble will be done in Gimp, even if I
have something to print, this is done through Gimp also.
For the color-managed print, I decided to try turboprint in the
Studio-Version which also offers the posibility to define several papers
with the related icc-profiles for printing etc.
(The only disatvantage is, that turboprint will do A3(+) prints only in
conjunction with esp-gs, but I hope this will change in the near future
- A4 prints are without any problems but with greater ones I get an
error-message (/rangecheck in --image--) from gpl-gs - in the meantime I
installed esp-gs from ETCH.)
The things that I miss currently is a scan-program for my slide-scanner
- but vuescan sounds like a high-qual alternative - and a
picture-management solution (but bibble5 will integrate such).
Of course, these programs aren't free and open-source, but even under
Windows the things aren't quite cheap. And if the programs fit my needs
I'm willing to pay my fee... ;-)

I also stumbled upon a blog dedicated to photography and Linux, which
has just published a "where we stand" article:
