Thank you Gilles
yes, sometimes it's better to talk in images with a guy like me :-)
So, I found this happily, and here's the next question:
I checked "Use color managed view". I guess I need this (correct me, if I'm
wrong, again), because I have the Tiff's in "wide gamut" but want to see
them "corrected" to monitor-(s)rgb.
But in the color management plugin preview, as far as I see it, the "color
managed view" is not applied (the monitor profile is not taken into account),
So I see the "wrong" wide-gamut in the preview, and then the "right" color
managed view in the editor window only, right?
(This is what I meant with my question in the other thread, where I asked why
the preview looks different than the result that you get).
Now, when choosing the input profile I have to guess in my brain how the
picture finally will look, but my brain isn really capable for this (probably
I still run a 286 internally). So the only way is to apply an input profile,
look how it looks in the editor, discard the picture, re-load it, check the
next profile... this is quite inconveniant. What do you think about it?
