Does anyone know if there is a better description of the Potted profiles, Modern 01 or B&W 01 are next to useless descriptions.

Nope! And I agree the names are silly.

I'm no better at describing colours than wine, but I've made a start with the Modern profiles. It'd be fab if everyone could chip in with their descriptions of the Creative Profiles and we could pull something useful together!

Modern 01 - High contrast, high saturation, slightly warmed.

Modern 02 - Lower contrast, warm.

Modern 03 - Medium contrast, greens start to move towards brown, reds are a little orange.

Modern 04 - Medium contrast, cool blues, reds move a little towards pink.

Modern 05 - Really desaturated.

Modern 06 - Deep blues with a hint of green.

Modern 07 - Higher contrast, a bit less saturated than Modern 01, warmer than Modern 01.

Modern 08 - Low saturation, dark blues.

Modern 09 - Slightly desaturated.

Modern 10 - Realistic saturation, medium contrast.

Well done! I guess that explains why they went with numbers - I'm not sure names that long would fit! ;)

Funny, I see from the documentation that the spec allows for fields like Name and Description. I wonder what they are for.....

It'd be good if a tooltip would show a longer description

Yes, I was thinking along those lines - it could appear in the bezel.

Yes, that would be a good idea! Vic I don't know which bit of "Medium contrast, greens start to move towards brown, reds are a little orange" you think wouldn't catch on ;).

I'm now calling Modern 03 the "Dark Green & Brown One" and Modern 05 "The Desaturated One".
