Lesson 13. Setting Up Your Monitor for C... > Saving the monitor profile

Saving the monitor profile

Now that you have calibrated for your monitor, you will save the ICC profile you have created. Applications that support color management will use this monitor profile to display color graphics. First, you'll give the monitor profile a unique descriptive name.

1.
In the Adobe Gamma dialog box, in Description, type a name for the monitor profile. (The sample uses My Monitor.) When you type a description here, it appears by default when you start Adobe Gamma. Applications that support color management will also display this descriptive name in their color-settings dialog boxes.

2.
Click OK (Windows) or click the Close button (Mac OS). In Mac OS, click Save when prompted.

Now you'll give the profile a filename so that you can identify it when using Explorer (Windows) or Finder (Mac OS).

3.
In the Save As dialog box, type the same name that you used in step 1 and save the profile in the Color folder (Windows) or the ColorSync Profiles folder (Mac OS).
