Chapter 2. The Critically Important Colo... > Setting Photoshop's Color Management...

Setting Photoshop's Color Management Defaults

Setting Photoshop Color Setting defaults doesn't take much time, but it does require a little thought to make them work best with the kind of work you do most. These settings can be changed at any time. These are defaults; Photoshop will use these settings unless you tell Photoshop to do something else. You can always override default settings on a per-file basis; when you find that you frequently are overriding the default settings, just press Ctrl()+Shift+K and set new defaults.

To make matters even simpler, Adobe has come up with different collections of settings that suit common needs of different types of work: printing to U.S., European, or Japanese printing presses; creating graphics for the Internet; working in the color spaces of Photoshop 4; or even turning off color management. If one of the default settings is good for your kind of work, your stay in this dialog box will be brief. But if the defaults don't cut it for you, or you just want greater control over things, there are lots of choices you can make. In the next sections you'll discover what all the choices are, and I'll offer some recommendations for what you should choose.
