This is a very incomplete answer, but important in regards to terminology and understanding everything: RGB and CMYK are color models. They don't define what your monitor or printer can do, only how color is created. A great question to review: What is the difference or relation between a Color Model and a Color Space? He also told me CMYK is a 100% ...

In my opinion the designer is wrong. CMYK is NOT a subset of sRGB. It is a diferent color model. Let me explain. sRGB is a color profile for rgb colors. But actually it is close to a "color space" (yes, this afirmation will be controversial). On top of that you "profile" your monitor and computer conected together. But there are tons of diferent ...

The camera sensor does not have a color space that allows going back and forth to XYZ since it does not have the same sensitivity curves as the human eye (Luther - Ives condition). The best that can be done is come up with a transform matrix that minimizes the sum of the errors in LAB for the set of standard colors (Gretab -Macbeth). I believe this process ...

There's a lot of confusing articles on gamma correction with many vague references to gamma and human vision. The reason for gamma is historical and a result of the response curve of the old CRT-type monitors (nothing to do with human vision). With modern day flat screens there is no logical reason for gamma encoding and subsequent correction, but it has ...

Honestly, two different monitors are always very very hard to get the same. If you really want them both to look the same, you should get two of the same monitor. This is especially difficult in your situation, where one is a touch screen (lots of wires an other bits to alter the color). Plus they are both TN panels, so the color will shift depending on the ...

RGB and CMYK are very different color models. For instance, RGB is additive: you basically start with black and add colors. You combine all colors to make white. But CMYK is subtractive: you start with white and add colors to generate black. If you think about it, it makes sense: Monitors are black by default, when there is no light, the screen is black. ...

You are not clipping the intermediate RGB values. From the sRGB Wikipedia article you linked to, The intermediate parameters R, G and B for in-gamut colors are defined to be in the range [0,1], ... The linear RGB values are usually clipped to that range, with display white represented as (1,1,1) From the W3C sRGB spec you linked to, ... XYZ are ...

Is it possible to calibrate correctly and identically (or nearly) 2 monitors? Only if they're identical display types. There are many different types of LCD display, and several non-LCD display types besides. Two different display types may simply be incapable of producing the same color gamut, brightness levels, evenness of illumination, contrast, etc. ...

What I don't get is why the photo viewer window of the big screen is red while the other is grey. Is this just an issue of one windows being activated? Besides that: Be aware that the Microsoft Photo Viewer is not fully supporting color management. So when comparing I suggest you to use Photoshop. Furthermore, not every monitor has got the same color ...

You can calibrate your screens to look the best they can for showing you correct colors for photos (or as close as it can get), but it's going to be very difficult to get two totally different brand screens to display exactly the same. Try messing with the settings on the monitor itself. From what I can tell your external monitor is more accurate looking and ...

You're right; the camera has its own native color space. When a camera is said to use or support sRGB (or Adobe RGB, as many also do), that means that it has native support for transforming its raw sensor data into that color space. When you use an out-of-camera RAW converter, like Lightroom or Darktable, that program needs to know about your individual ...

When talking about the extent of a color gamut, all that's really talking about is the most highly saturated bright colours it can portray, which is only one small aspect of colour accuracy. It says nothing, for example, about the monitor's accuracy in displaying whites and greys, its accuracy in gamma and its ability to portray skin tones, and other mild ...

I attempted to duplicate what you are describing. I created an image consisting of the color you specified. I had to guess at how much saturation you were adding in the adjustment. In Lightroom (Develop>Basic>Color>Presence>Saturation) I added 100 saturation. (I'm not sure what steps you were going through, but if you specify, this may help get a clearer ...

The OP is pretty much all correct, except that gamma makes the dark tones brighter, not dimmer. This exists just in the file, not in the eye. The data is always decoded back to original linear BEFORE any eye sees it. Any difference in the eye seeing the original scene, and seeing the reproduced decoded data, is simply an undesired reproduction error. ...
