Chapter 5. Color Settings: Configuring P... > Color Management in Photoshop

Color Management in Photoshop

A little history: In versions of Photoshop prior to 5.0, the program acted like almost all other applications at the time, and simply sent RGB values straight to the screen. If the settings in the Monitor Setup dialog box (which doesn't exist anymore, thankfully) were accurate, Photoshop had a good idea of what color you were actually seeing on the monitor, and used this as the basis for conversions from RGB to other color spaces. It also used the Monitor Setup information to display those other color spaces correctly on your monitor. You can think of this approach as a crude color management system, albeit a limited, closed, proprietary one.
