Converting the Color Space to Another Profile

There are times when you will open a document that contains an embedded profile, and you need to convert it. Photoshop gives you the option of tagging the document with another profile without converting the colors, or removing the old profile and converting the color space. Photoshop's Convert To Profile command gives you the ability to remove, reassign, or change the profile in a document. In addition, you may want to prepare a document for a different output destination, such as an ink jet printer or 4-color press.

Convert the Color Space to Another Profile

Open a document.

Click the Image menu, point to Mode, and then click Convert To Profile.

Click the Profile list arrow, and then select a new color profile.

The document will be converted and tagged with the new color profile.

Click the Engine list arrow, and then select:

  • Adobe (ACE). Adobe color management (default)

  • Microsoft ICM. Windows color management.

  • Apple ColorSync. Mac OS color management

  • Apple CMM. Mac OS color management

Click the Intent list arrow, and then select an option.
