Color Management Policies in Photoshop
Okay, in PhotoShop, we'll go, here we are, where are we? Edit And we need to go into... Color settings, there they are. Okay, Color Settings. You choose the color space you want to work with, you know. Now I have two set up. One is ProPhoto RGB. Okay, and another one is for Adobe RGB, depending on what I'm doing. Okay, so assuming it is ProPhoto RGB we're working in, so we're in a large color space because we're working with a lot of color and all that sort of stuff. The most important part of this is in this area here. The color management policies, okay? So convert to working RGB, convert to working CMYK, which we never work in CMYK, and convert to working Grey, which doesn't really concern us photographers. But, these checkboxes down below here are the most important section, okay? We want to be able to tell Photoshop that, if there is a profile mismatch going from one program to another, or one document to another, then Photoshop needs to ask us what do you want to do? Okay? So, if...
there's profile mismatch, we take Ask When Opening, Ask When Pasting. So if we got two images and we're doing a composite and we wanna just put one image on top of the other, and the two images in a different Color Space, which could lead to all sorts of different color problems, we want Photoshop to say, what do you wanna do? Rather than Photoshop making the decision and doing the conversion for you. And then of course, missing profiles. Should you ever get a profile that's not there, or the profile is not tagged into the file, then, you know, Photoshop says, I don't have a profile. Which profile do you want to assign to this particular image? Everything else remains standard. Adobe ACE, the intent we'll leave as perceptual. That's it. So, that's that for Photoshop. It's pretty simple. Now let's have a look at Adobe CameraRoll. I'm just gonna open up a Roll file.
