Is it possible to configure Craft to preserve the ICC color profile?

I did test JPG images saved in "sRGB IEC61966-2.1" profile and the files returned from Craft transformations are always saved in plain "RGB", oversaturated and just not as nice.

Imagick is installed.

  • Are you using GD2 or Imagick on your server? GD2 has absolutely no support for color profiles. Imagick has, so unless you've already tried it, check if that helps. But I guess the question is still, whether Craft preserves it or not. Oct 20 '14 at 17:42
  • Imagick is installed and Craft uses it. EXIF data etc. is preserved but the ICC is not. Check this because I guessed Craft transform uses Imagick's stripImage() method, that does not only remove EXIF but also the ICC.

Not currently, but this is already on our list.

The image processing library we're using only recently (within the last 6 months or so) added ICC profile support.


Great news for all photographers and image lovers! Things changed with Craft 2.3, ICC profiles are now preserved if Imagick is installed and used for the transformation.

  • Thanks Brad, looking forward to it. Quality images is essential for photography / art portfolios.
