You need to add an RGB color profile to the second images. This seems to get it closer if not correct.

Code: Select all

magick gradiant-grey.jpg \
\( 4060715278916-0.png -trim +repage -gravity center -resize x4460 +repage \
-profile /Users/fred/images/profiles/sRGB.icc +write tmp.png \) \
-gravity northwest -geometry "+%[fx:(u.w-v.w)/2]+470" -compose over -composite \
 result.jpg
Change my path to the sRGB.icc profile to your own path and choose what RGB color profile you want.

I will test it tomorrow with a proper display ( on the macbook it looks closer ... ) :-)

i had used the icc.profile before, but put it in the wrong position tried colourspace as well but that made it worse :-(

You can use some other RGB profile it that makes it better such as AdobeRGB.icc.

When you composite two images, metadata for the result is taken from the first input, not the second. 4060715278916-0.png may contain critical metadata. Perhaps reversing the order will do what you want.

The links to your images are broken, and I can't download them.
