Merged

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Camera Raw: CMYK color space removed from the quick save option?

vielen dank, ich habe gestern schon mit Eurem Support telefoniert. In den beiden letzten Updates sind der Farbraum CMYK und viele andere leider nicht mehr enthalten (komischerweise angeblich in der US-Version schon) ... ich suche mir jetzt ein Update in der Funktion, die noch dazu gehört. Ich brauche einfach viele "unbearbeitete Fotos" für das Journal, dessen Fotos im CMYK-Farbraum geliefert wurden. Jetzt muss ich jedes einzelne Foto in PS CC laden und dann einzeln umwandeln. Mich wundert, dass das ausser mir scheinbar noch niemand beanstandet hat?
EINlso bitte, liebes Team von Adobe PS CC Bridge CC und ACR CC, bitte stellt die Möglichkeit der Farbwahl wieder auf die vorher vorhandenen Möglichkeiten um. Die vier oder fünf jetzt angebotenen reichen absolut nicht aus.

Thank you very much, yesterday I phoned your support. In the last two updates, the color space CMYK and many others are unfortunately no longer included (strangely supposedly in the US version already) ... I am now looking for an update in the function that still belongs. I simply need many "unedited photos" for the journal, whose photos were delivered in the CMYK color space. Now I have to load each single photo into PS CC and then convert it one by one. I am surprised that apparently nobody complained except me?

So please, dear team of Adobe PS CC Bridge CC and ACR CC, please the possibility of color choice back to the previously available options. The four or five now offered are absolutely not enough.

Hallo Klaus-Dieter,

CMYK sollte da sein.  Daß es fehlt  ist ein Fehler.  Ich habe dieses Bug schon eingemeldet.

Aber jetzt habe ich eine echte Frage -- brauchen Sie und benützen Sie alle diese andere Formatten?

Vielen Dank,
David

Howdy Klaus-Dieter,

CMYK should be there.  That it is missing is a mistake.  I have already logged this bug.

But that begs the question -- do you (ALL OF YOU READING THIS) actually need and use all of these other formats?

Thanks,
David

Hi David,

A lot of people use various ICC profiles and colorspaces for different purposes. 

In VFX, one might want to use DCI-P3, P3D65, P3D60, Rec.709, Rec.2020, Arri Wide Gamut, ACES AP0, ACES AP1, Sony S-Gamut, etc. All might have different blends of gamma/TRCs curves. Some being Linear (1.0), some with simple gamma curves (1.8, 2.2, 2.4, 2.6), some with more complex parametric tone curves(Rec.709, sRGB, L*), some with Logarithmic (Arri LogC, Cineon Log).

In print, one might want to use ECI-RGB with it's L* TRC/Gamma. Or use one of the newer V4 PRMG based sRGB profiles. Or they don't wish to open Photoshop itself or use image processor and wish to batch export into CMYK TIFFs. 

In photo editing, some people like to explore alternative workflows/methods. Some of which utilize different working spaces depending on the image. The way the color/tools/histogram/etc function in Photoshop are heavy influenced by the working space. For instance if i was working on an image where most of the image values are in the darker areas/ranges, I might choose to use a working space with a higher gamma number. Such as gamma 2.6 or gamma 3.0. This will distribute the tones more through the histogram/curves window/etc making it easier to work with. If it was a really bright image, I might use gamma 1.0 or 1.5. I know all this can be done manually with layers as well, however Photoshop isn't doing these operations in 32bit floating point. At some point when you do a bunch of gamma corrections on a 16bit (15+1bit) image, it starts to fall apart.

Just to add, I'd like to see Photoshop/ACR/etc getting more modular and advanced with color. Not really less. 

Like instead of removing profiles, I'd love to see more support for ACES based workflows. And even OpenColorIO integration possibly.

If you look at what Davinci Resolve is doing, with Color Space Transforms and 32bit floating point processing, HSL masks/qualifiers, etc...

That's more where i'd like to see ACR/Photoshop headed. Not removing stuff and having less stuff. I think there can be ways to specify Simple vs. Advanced workflows if one is looking to simplify the UI/experience

Hi David, thanks for your comment. No, I don't need all the the color-forms. I only would need CMYK back again. In former updates it was included...
