The problem actual is that my pictures look quite differently in my Jolla and on my PC. I see it after I upload images to Facebook and view them on my PC. This is not a browser thing (I've checked Opera 12 and latest Firefox, Chrome and IE).

At first my thought was that the screen is different, but then I opened one of the photos in GIMP. So as seem the JPG is encoded in "sRGB IEC61966-2-1 black scaled". GIMP doesn't understand this color space either and is not able to translate it correctly... Or maybe the camera app encoded them incorrectly.

Whatever the reason is - my photos look fine on Jolla, but look greenish on PC. This is either a bug or a feature that is not good in practice.

sRBG? Is that a typo and it should be sRGB?

If you meant sRGB that's a very common colour profile. If you really did mean sRBG then that might be the problem.

No, that was a typo. Sorry. I don't know too much about color profiles, but it's weird that GIMP complains about it. And color balance (when opened on PC) is weird.
