Tracker and Icon-O-Matic render gradients differently.

Description

I'm working on a MineSweeper icon and noticed that the radial gradient looked very different between what I was seeing in IOM, and what the saved icon looked like.

I'm attaching 2 images showing the 32px and 64px sized icons for comparison. It should be pretty easily noticeable.

It has to do with IOM rendering in linear RGB space, while the icon library produces sRGB (with a gamma curve) bitmaps. Something somewhere is not being converted as it should be. I may have turned the conversion off since it looked better without it, I don't remember, it's so long ago I wrote the code.

Could #1458 be related?

Sounds like it. Stippi?

Yes. In my replies to both of these tickets, I mentioned the same probably reason.
