Review questions

1:What do source profiles describe?
A1: Source profiles selected in the Assign Profiles dialog box describe the color space InDesign assigns to objects you create using the drawing tools, or when you import an RGB, CMYK, or LAB color graphic that wasn't saved with an embedded profile.
2:What are three ways to attach an ICC profile to a graphic so that InDesign can color-manage the graphic?
A2: You can embed the profile in the original file, assign a profile within InDesign, or use the default profile you specified when you set up color management in InDesign.
3:Why would you embed an ICC profile in a graphic?
A3: Embedding an ICC profile ensures that the graphic displays correctly in any application that uses ICC-compliant color management. The application that uses the graphic honors the embedded profile rather than applying a default one.
4:Which file formats embed ICC profiles for use in both Windows and Mac OS?
A4: A growing number of formats can contain an embedded ICC profile, but the most widely supported formats to use with embedded ICC profiles at this time are bitmap image formats such as Photoshop (PSD), TIFF, and JPEG.
