Colour Management Tests
Colour Management Tests
Write reftests to compare images. This includes dealing with things like Monitor Profiles, profiles in JPEG (i.e., JPEGs get changed based on colour profile info). See discussion of colour profiles in Firefox 3 here. It would be useful to be able to compare to PNGs with a reftest, perhaps creating an image diff tool, where pixels outside a floating point tolerance (> 0.n) would somehow be highlighted so you can see what is different. Done.
This will require some graphics and image knowledge (i.e., Photoshop, what colour is on a computer, etc).

Colour Profile Reftest 0.1 Gained basic knowledge of reftesting with colour profiles
Colour Profile Reftest 0.2 Created tests and filed bugs

Have a build of firefox on the linux with
on the mozconfig
download the reftest
unzip it in your home folder.
run the reftest
~/pngsuite-colorprofiles$ ~/src/obj*/dist/bin/firefox --no-remote -reftest -P testfirefox1(replace with test Profile) ./failedPixelTestAdobe1998.list | grep REFTEST > failedPixeltestAdobe1998output(insert Linux OS).txt
open the failedPixelAdobe1998output*.txt
It should failed and it should have
the URI data of the tested pixels/images.
'fail line output'
Upload the text file on the zenit wiki

TechNote001: Reftest framework contains image rendering reftests in module/libpr0n/test/reftest inside the mozilla source.
about:config and set
‘0′ for no color management,
‘1′ for full color management, and
‘2′ (the default) for tagged(with ICC)-only correction
Technote003: What are ways to embed colour profiles into images? Photoshop does it. Preview in Mac OSX does it which means you can use Automator to apply profiles on multiple images
reftest can compare images now output is sRGB if the reftest fails
Technote007: Use URI scheme for reftest DATA URI Scheme Wiki

bug 459617 details https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=459617
- first figure out the exact pixel that's different
- then add some conditional code in cmsDoTransform that checks for that pixel, prints it on input, and prints the transformed pixel
-and see if you can confirm that the issue is within LCMS, or whether it's actually somewhere else
-if it's an LCMS issue if you can get the lcms code to say that it's outputting different pixels on different platforms for the same input pixel and transform

made some builds with --enabled-tests
learning how to make reftests.
reading over notes etc.
- Sept 20/08
made more updates to notes and project page.
- Sept 22/08
Got a response from an email...one step closer to putting these pieces together.
Got some Goals...and Focus.
- Sept 26/08
Been testing thing for the past few days...trying to get the tests right.
- Sept 28/08
I think I got the tests right. Profiles File:ICCProfiles28Sept08.zip

Reading on colours LAB vs RGB vs CMYK
Has a conclusion on the ubuntu
Update the test updated tests
- Oct 11/08
spent time isolating 2 pixels that were failing on the reftests in Ubuntu tested to see if the suspected pixels were failing...yes they still fail.
simplified reftest to show failing pixel and reftest differences in GIMP
- Oct 12/08
filed a bug bug#459617
trying to narrow it down.
- Oct 19/08
how to test in different configurations.
- Nov 9/08
updating the test...it's too big
- Nov 24/08 learning about hg queues adding and importing folders and files patches. looking at bug comments particularly: Yay, reftests!
A few tiny drive-by nits:
"pngsuite" is actually an official PNG test suite, so these should go under a different name. Say, modules/libpr0n/test/reftest/png/color-profile/.
A single reftest.list manifest is fine, no need to break it into small chunks. The readme could just be distilled down into plain test, and rolled into the manifest as brief comments.
