Color-managing imported graphics in InDesign

When you import a graphic, you can control its color management in your document. If you know that an imported graphic contains an accurate embedded profile with an appropriate rendering intent, you just import it and continue working. InDesign will read and apply the embedded profile to the graphic, integrating it into the CMS for the document. If an imported bitmap image does not include an embedded profile, InDesign applies the default source profile (CMYK, RGB, or LAB) to the image.

InDesign also applies a default source profile to InDesign-drawn objects. You can assign a different profile within InDesign—using Edit > Assign Profiles to open the Assign Profiles dialog box—or open the graphic in the original application and embed the profile there.
