output color profile

Manage the output profile for export and the rendering intent to be used when mapping between color spaces.

darktable comes with pre-defined profiles sRGB, Adobe RGB, XYZ and linear RGB. You can provide additional profiles by placing them in $DARKTABLE/share/darktable/color/out and $HOME/.config/darktable/color/out (where $DARKTABLE is the darktable installation directory and $HOME is your home directory). Note that these color/out directories are not created by the darktable install; if you need to use one, you must create it yourself.

The output color profile may also be defined within the export module.

🔗module controls

output intent
The rendering intent for output/export. Rendering intent can only be selected when using LittleCMS2 to apply the output color profile (this can be changed in preferences > processing). If darktable’s internal rendering routines are used, this option is hidden. For more details see rendering intent.
output profile
The profile used to render colors for output/export. The profile data will be embedded into the output file (if supported by the file format) allowing other applications to correctly interpret its colors. As not all applications are aware of color profiles, the general recommendation is to stick to sRGB unless you know what you are doing and have a good reason to do otherwise.
