Hi guys, today I received my BenQ SW321C, I've calibrated the monitor with Display P3, created an ICC profile file and set the ICC profile in Windows. Then on the monitor I have hardware buttons where I can jump from Display P3 to Adobe RGB & sRGB.
From what I currently understand my best option is to do my photo edits using Display P3 hardware button on monitor and my Display P3 calibrated ICC profile to ensure I see as many colors possible, but when I i.e. export for social media (instagram/facebook) the recommended settings seem to be JPEG & sRGB color space:
How can I ensure my colors are accurately displayed when exporting to a different color space?
When I change from Display P3 to sRGB on my monitor hardware buttons I see quite a big different on my whites (way brighter on Display P3). Does this mean it will have the same darker whites when I export to JPEG sRGB color space? If so, should I be doing my editing in sRGB mode on the monitor when I know I will export to sRGB color space, or what are my best options ? Right now I'm worried if I edit using Display P3 and export to sRGB I will be making photos that are way darker than what I see when I edit
Basically I want to ensure I have the most colors I can available when editing while ensuring the colors in my exports (which usually are JPEG sRGB) are as accurate as possible. And with all these different profiles & settings I'm confused how to achieve this.
All input much appreciated. In advance, thank you.
LrC has a Soft Proof tool in the Develop module that let's you see your image preveiw using any color profile (sRGB, Paper Profile, etc.). What colorimeter and calibration software are you using? Make sure it is set to profile version v2 and type to Matrix, which is the most compatible with LrC. Calibrate the display for the widest gamut selectable (native is widest) and then use LrC Soft Proof for your preview of other color profiles.
