I just started to learn about developing photos and now the big moment is
near and I want to print a photo in poster size.
I got the image here as a Canon RAW (*.cr2) file and I try to get the very
best out of it using digiKam.
Is there somewhere a nice howto for a professional workflow using digiKam?
AFAIK has the RAW image no color space so I think the first step would
involve to convert it to AdobeRGB, or? Do I do this during the RAW import
selecting the "work color space"?
Do I have an AdobeRGB image then? I tried this once and the metadata says
unkown color profile. The next question: Since sRGB is used for computer
display and AdobeRGB would simply look "wrong" do I have to enable the color
managed view or disable it during my work?
All I want to make sure: Get the best out of my RAW and to the photo
printing service :)
Would be really nice if the more experienced users could provide some nice
