It is my understanding that I can save rendered images at best as PNG files. But what about color profiles ?
The manual says:
The other place to keep color management in mind is when loading and saving image files. File formats such as PNG or JPEG will typically store colors in a color space ready for display, not in a linear space.
When working with image files, the default color space is usually the right one. If this is not the case, the color space of the image file can be configured in the image settings.
Where can I find those settings ??? Where can I set the color space of images ? In this post it is said that
Saving to a JPEG or TIFF at 8 bits per channel will apply a nonlinear sRGB curve to the data, and may change the internal float format to the respective format's storage type. Saving to an EXR will transfer the internal reference space buffers unchanged which, by nature of EXR, is a linearized float scene referred format.
What does this mean ?? Does this mean the image are saved in sRGB by default but no color profile is attached to the image ? So best to assign sRGB to the image when opened in Photoshop ?
