darktable employs a fully color managed workflow:

  • Input color specifications are taken from embedded or user-supplied ICC profiles or (in the case of raw files) from a library of camera-specific color matrices.

  • darktable automatically reads the display profile of your monitor (if properly configured) for accurate on-screen color rendition. Multiple-screen setups are fully supported as long as a system service like colord is in place and properly configured to inform darktable of the correct monitor profile.

  • Output files can be encoded in one of darktable’s built-in profiles, including sRGB and Adobe RGB, or into a color space supplied by the user as an ICC profile.
