I bought a color eye calibration software. I ran it and it works. But I am completely baffled as to what goes on behind the screen. Here are some of the questions
What does the lut loader do? Doesn't the OS already have a mechanism to load the icc profile?
Does calibration produce one output (the icc profile) or two outputs (the icc profile, and a LUT)?
Is the calibration process color-space dependent? In other words, if at some point I decide to shoot and output in adobeRGB space, would I have to recalibrate the monitor (assuming I already have a wide gamut monitor)?
If the answer is, the calibration process is color-space dependent, then I expect to see a parameter sRGB or adobeRGB in the calibration software but I haven't found that yet. So, the answer seems to be no.
That means, calibration is color-space independent. So then, why does sRGB photo look more correct than adobeRGB photo when viewed directly? Doesn't it mean the monitor is calibrated to match the sRGB color space? I was told NO NO NO but I don't understand why.
To view adobeRGB photos correctly, I cannot just open it in a simple photo viewer but it has to be viewed in photoshop? Why, because photoshop converts adobeRGB into sRGB?
I found very little answers to these questions on the web. Perhaps I have some weird misconception that I cannot shake from my mind.
