Today we’d like to tackle an topic that is all too often overlooked in the editing process– ICC Profiles. These profiles are essentially look-up tables that describe and define a color space. These profiles allow you to organize your color-management workflow. To utilize this tool, you simply open Photoshop as usual, adjust the file to the desired look, then embed the color profile which will factor in the printer, etc. to ensure your image comes out the way you intended it to.
Now, that was an incredibly simplifies version of ICC Profiles and while we could certainly get into the nitty-gritty detail of it all, our friends over at Dry Creek Photo have already done an amazing post on the concept. Click here to check out their highly detailed, step-by-step breakdown of the process.
Here at LightJets+, we utilize the Adobe RGB 1998 profile and while we are skilled at color-matching, adding this step to the editing process will ensure your images are exactly how you want them.
