I have a full-size MacBeth color card and the listed RGB values of White square (lower left) are average RGB values of 243, and the Black square is average RGB of 52.

A NEF photo opened in QU needs to have the Editor portion raised to Brightness=13 and Contrast=17 for the White & Black squares to match the above values in the "Curr. Color" box at the bottom of the Editor windows with the mouse pointer placed on those two squares.

Is this the correct method?  Huh?  The NEF images seem flat otherwise without the Brightness=13 and Contrast=17 boost above applied.  Subsequent prints seem to match the card doing it that way.

Also, I assume it is normal for a sRGB image to appear slightly reddish compared to Adobe 1998 images in the viewer portion too?
