Tip of the day: Read the histogram II

It occurred to me the other day that comparing histograms from images that you find online may not give you the "whole picture". This is because web images are usually sRGB and most of the time I'm starting at a ProPhoto RGB. Converting one to another changes the histogram substantially.

So make sure you're comparing apples to apples and removing the color profile out of the equation :)
