Lesson 6. Working with Color > Color-managing imported graphics in InDesign CS2

Color-managing imported graphics in InDesign CS2

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 CS2 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 CS2 applies the default source profile (CMYK, RGB, or LAB) to the image.

InDesign CS2 also applies a default source profile to InDesign CS2-drawn objects. You can assign a different profile within InDesign CS2—using Edit > Assign Profiles to open the Assign Profiles dialog box—or open the graphic in the original application and embed the profile there.
