different colours and nuances in Jpeg
I noted that when opening same jpeg image with the Gimp or a different viewer I get different results:

Gimp is no the right , EOG or geeqie on the left, I note a different tone of blue..

Why?? I am using The latest Gimp in Fedora 15.

Tnx for help

RE: different colours and nuances in Jpeg
Likely because there is a color profile used somewhere. If there is a color profile in the image, Gimp tells you about it when you open it, so ti would not be in the picture. So the other possibility is that you have one for your screen.

What says Edit/Preferences/Color management? Any profiles defined?

Tnx for your prompt reply.

So, in the Edit/Preferences/Color Management, I had Mode of operation: Display with colour management, but the box: try to use system monitor was unchecked.

I checked that box and now colours match. Is it correct??

Tnx again

Seriously, I can't tell, I'm not an expert... All I know is that color management works only if done all the way, and partial management is worse than no management.
