UNDERSTANDING COLOR

Color is an important part of a production process; Acrobat understands that and has support for the same color management as the rest of the Creative Suite programs.

Using Color Profiles

When you create images in Illustrator or Photoshop you are given the option to apply an existing ICC color profile or to create your own. An ICC color profile is a set of values that measures the color space where the image was created (how your scanner or digital camera “sees” color, for example) and the color space where it will be reproduced (an offset press or a computer monitor), and then it translates between both so that the image is reproduced accurately. ICC color profiling is an industry-standard color management method that was created by the International Color Consortium. When an ICC profile is applied to a file, the information is embedded and travels with it. This ensures that color is seen as close as possible to its intended output.
