[Digikam-users] Re : Choose another ICC profile for converting pictures

I've a precision to make : as I understand the Digikam way to manage ICC profile, it now (I'm sure it wasn't the case in the past) sorts profiles by type (i.e. the output profiles menu only shows and manages output type profiles, and so on). That's roughly a good idea for the digikam control panel, BUT not for the color space conversion tool in picture editor and batch tool. This one only shows display ICC profiles, but it should offer output ICC profiles in order to completely control the colors behavior before print works, especially with remote laboratories. 

Is it exist a way to convert the color space of a picture in an output ICC profile ? 

If not, I will open a request in the bugtracker.

Some web printing sites deliver ICC profile suited for theyre own professionnal printers in order to adapt your pictures and make soft proofing. 

If it's easy to enable soft-proofing in Digikam with any ICC profile you want (for instance photoweb-V4.icc), in the color space convertion tool, you only can choose the default kdcraw profiles (ie sRGB, Adobe RGB, Wide Gamut and Kodak Prophoto RGB) and the screen profiles installed on the system, but not another profile like photoweb-V4.icc (even if its placed in the same folder than the others profiles).  

How could I do it ? 

Thanks for your ideas
