How to Tell If Your App Is Handling Colors Correctly

Gus Mueller:

Here’s how to check if your image editor of choice does the right thing when making and saving images. Create a new document, set the color profile to sRGB, fill it with 100% red, and see what Digital Color Meter tells you. If it says the RGB values are 234,51,35 (or thereabouts) then you’re in good shape. If it says 255,0,0 then you’re going to eventually be in a world of hurt, because it’s not correctly handling color profiles.
