Chapter 10. Color > InDesign’s Color Management Controls

InDesign’s Color Management Controls

You can control how color appears in InDesign in two places: the Color Settings dialog box (under the Edit menu), and the Proof Setup dialog box (under the View menu). These controls are similar to the features of the same name in Illustrator and Photoshop. Because proofing relies entirely on how you’ve set up Color Settings, we’ll start with the former and then cover proofing later. You can use the Color Settings dialog box to choose the color management engine you want to use, and to set up the device profiles for your monitor, your separations printer, and your composite printer.

Application Color Settings

The choices you make in the Color Settings dialog box form the basis for how InDesign displays and prints color (see Figure 10-17). These controls all match the similarly named features in Adobe Photoshop, though the meanings are sometimes subtly different.
