    See images with color problem on:

    I face the following issue:

    When using the following work-flow:
    Olympus E330 - Raw format - ACR (Adobe Camera Raw) - sRGB image

    I get colours that are not good to me. The "red" colours are flat and
    pinkish.

    Instead if I shoot the same image in sRGB JPEG or convert the raw
    image using the Olympus program: the results are correct.
    I tried to apply colour correction in ACR, (calibrate tab). I followed
    the procedure proposed by Bruce Fraser in his book "Real World Camera
    Raw with Adobe Photoshop CS2: Industrial-Strength Production
    Techniques" (see http://safari.peachpit.com/0321334094), by the way
    this is an excellent book to read if you intend to use ACR.

    It is a bit better but the color is a bit pink, and applying this to
    other images does not work well. I believe that this "calibration"
    method is probably good if you want to do small adjustments, but in my
    case I believe that the raw colour model of the E330 is probably not
    well understood by ACR and the adjustments cannot cover the gap.

    Any help is welcome, can someone recommend a profile or work around
    using ACR. Or anybody else using another RAW tool with the Olympus
    E330 and getting good color results.

    Thanks in advance,
    Antoine
