EPIC: Web image contrast

by steve_albers_spire » Thu Mar 18, 2021 4:17 pm America/New_York

I'm curious about whether the contrast of the web imagery for EPIC images is set to match the actual scene when displayed on a standard monitor. The images seem possibly with slightly too much contrast, though I'm not sure. Is a gamma value of 2.2 assumed during the color processing?
