Yeah, well if it's untagged, as far as I'm concerned, it's meaningless. Pull up the "assign" profile list, assign something to it, that looks halfway ok, now it has some meaning.
Must be nice not to have to live in a real world where people send you untagged documents....
Yes, pull up the Assign list and start guessing. End result, no more untagged doc.
I can understand that the Photoshop authors wanted their software to have a default behavior with untagged imagery, but this has got us into the situation where people now expect *their* defaults to be significant on other machines, in other countries etc.
No, the user has to take some responsibly for setting the color settings so Photoshop can make a guess to the untagged data. In one environment (say a web designer), it makes sense to select sRGB as this assumption, for others, nothing could be worse. So Adobe allows someone who understands how the application operates to not only direct the assumption for all untagged data, it can also warn you which is kind of useful.
Its real, real easy: Tag files good. Untagged files, bad. Now how do we go about fixing the bad situation?
The idea that untagged is something other than meaningless, that one can and should make some assumption about it, is also what has landed us in such a mess with web imagery. Of course, the fact that one company wanted the world to assume that there was only one web browser may have helped that along
Until untagged documents never appear again, which isn’t likely, we need a mechanism for defining the scale of the numbers. So the statement “Who cares about the preview of an untagged image anyway? It's totally meaningless.
“ is kind of silly don’t you think?
But I'm preaching to the choir, am I not?
No one else is listening but us chickens
I wouldn’t make such an assumption considering the audience.
