Colour profiles Lightwave - Pshop

Hi,

I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to colour profiles so I wonder if somebody can help me?

I'm using Linear colour space with lightwave/octane. When I save my rendered image out from lightwave and then load it into photoshop the colours are looking nowhere near as good.

Obviously this is a colour profile issue but I can't seem to get the images looking the same in Lightwave and Pshop CS6 by changing the profiles.

Does anyone have experience of this that could offer a solution?

Many Thanks,
Simon

Hi Simon,

the image in LW or Octane is displayed through your monitor profile. In my case it's my own profile, which I made with an iOne Spectrometer. This means my monitor is calibrated. Let's say my profile names MyDell.icc for example. In your case you must check which color profile is standard in your OS.

Now if you load your rendered image in PS you have to assign exact that profile. In my case MyDell.icc. After that it looks exactly the same in PS as in LW. Next step is to convert the profile let's say to sRGB if you want to use the final image on digital devices like PCs, tablets, etc. or maybe convert it to eciRGBv2 if you want to use the image for print production.

Best would be to calibrate your monitor and save your own profile and use this to assign it.
