Hi. Any ideas what might be going on here? I thought I had color management under control but it is giving me grief. I am currently not after the best looking image. Instead I am after consistency so as to prove color management is working correctly.

The image below is a snapshot from my screen. From left to right:

1. Firefox
2. Capture NX2
3. Safari
4. ViewNX2

Not visible is a PhotoMechanic view. It's rendering is identical to the Firefox and Safari images.

In all instances we are looking at a JPG with embedded Adobe RGB color space downloaded from Tim Grey's web site.

Why the lower saturation/color shift in the Capture NX2 and ViewNX2 images? All applications should be color management aware!

The problem persists if I use a U2711.icm profile from TFT Central. The problem goes away if I revert to a default Windows sRGB monitor profile in the Windows 7 color management control panel.
