Bug Description

When opening the same JPEG image in Gimp, Firefox, Shotwell and the Image Viewer (eog) only the latter shows the colors more subdued (Ubuntu 14.04). This is mostly noticable with reds. A good test image is:

If I open this image in Chrome on an iPad it looks similar in color to Image Viewer, so it might be the case that Image Viewer is correctly rendering the colors, and Gimp et al not.
