Colour saturation of image changed
« on: March 08, 2019, 09:26:08 AM »
I have downloaded the latest version and run it against each of 70 images I have with this command:
exiftool -all=<filename>

Unfortunately, in 1 case, the saturation of the image has changed - the image has actually faded. Is this a known bug - I couldn't find anything myself?

Could you send me the file in question?  My email is philharvey66 at gmail.com.

My guess is that this happened because the ICC_Profile was deleted.  If this is the case, then the following command should solve the problem:

exiftool -all= --icc_profile:all FILE

...where DIR is the name of a directory/folder containing the images.  On Mac/Linux, use single quotes (') instead of double quotes (") around arguments containing a dollar sign ($).

I got the sample.  Yes, deleting the ICC_Profile was the cause.
