AdobeRGB & sRGB test charts

This webpage links to several pages of test charts and images.

The following pages can be used to test whether a wide-gamut display is correctly set-up and whether the display software is correctly applying image colour profiles.

Once system set-up has been checked, using the three pages above, the following pages can be used to see the difference between images rendered in AdobeRGB and sRGB colour spaces on wide-gamut displays. There are 3 images on each page. The first image on each page was created in AdobeRGB space and contains some saturated colours that are outside sRGB colour space. The second image on each page was created by correctly converting the first image from AdobeRGB colour space into sRGB using relative colorimetric intent. Most of the image will appear unchanged, but any colours that are outside sRGB space will have been adjusted (shifted) so they lie within sRGB colour space. The third image on each page was created by assigning an sRGB colour profile to the AdobeRGB image data in the first image. This image will be rendered differently. It will appear duller than the other two. Unfortunately images created in this way are sometimes used to (incorrectly) illustrate how much more colourful the same image is in AdobeRGB colour space compared to sRGB.
