Disabling color profile handling

  • Some JPEG images have a color profile embedded such as sRGB or AdobeRGB. Opera 32 and Chrome tries to convert this to my monitor's profile, but they fail miserably at doing this properly, leading to ugly banding which is especially visible on clear sky photos and such. I'd rather not have Opera trying to do anything to the colors than this.

    There seems to be a parameter called --enable-monitor-profile which you can specify on the command line, but it seem this is already enabled by default. Is there a way to disable this?

  • Left is Opera 31 stable, right is the correctly displayed image:

    (Using Windows 7, 64-bit, ATI graphics card.)

  • Wait wait wait... it's an interaction between the chrome render engine and Windows, it seems.

    I had the correct color profile selected in windows. Bad idea. Now I deleted it from windows, and now it looks just right. Thank god.

    Case closed!
