How to Change the Color Profile?

I'm lost. I can't figure out how to change the ICC profile for an image with PSE 2.0 for the Mac. If I open an image that already has a profile, all I can do when I "Save As" is embed it or not. How do I select/assign a different profile? I just don't get it.

Thanks for any help!

Image: Mode: Assign Profile.
or

Hope that helps.

No go...

Boingo82, thanks for the reply, but there is no such menu item - at least not in the Mac version of PSE 2.0. Any other ideas?

Thanks,

boingo's method will work for Photoshop, but not for Elements. As far as I can tell, Elements has no way to assign an arbitrary profile to a file. You can assign any profile during printing, using the Print Preview dialog with "More Options" checked, but that's not going to affect the file itself, only how its printed.

Hopefully Richard will see this and give the full story.

"Save As" Twice

It just occurred to me that if you "Save As" and uncheck the "embed profile" option and then "Save As" again, you can at least attach the Adobe RGB profile, and that's what I was after primarily. I still don't know if/how you can attach an arbitrary profile though.

Shotster I just tried saving it twice and it didn't work I still ended up with only the old embedded option available. The only way I have found is to open the photograph, then use cut and paste into a new file ... then you have the chance to embed the colour option you are using at the time.

My problem is that my camera embeds sRGB 1EC61966-2.1 and I use my own calibrated profile. I am away for the next few days but will catch up with this thread on my return.

Mac users of PSE (or any software) have a powerful helper utility in the native system software - ColorSync.

With ColorSync and AppleScript - one can do many profile related tasks. Commonly installed and forgotten or hidden on the OS CD are ColorSync AppleScripts which can be used on single images or batches of images.

With these scripts one can assign, convert, extract, remove profiles etc.

MS Win users do not have anything similar, but there are some command line tools for performing profile tasks - but you need to know how to use the old command line syntax (I don't). If there are any DOS or command line users reading, it would be good to get some info on how to make these tools work (they are free and thus unsupported by the authors).

Thanks & Clarification

WendyW, I neglected to mention that when I tried it, I closed the document after saving and then reopened it. It then had the Adobe profile as the default. It sounds like just duplicating the image to a new doc is perhaps even easier.

Stephen, thanks a lot for the ColorSync tips. That hadn't occurred to me. I will look for those scripts you mention and check them out.

Regards,

I think I have another somewhat interesting solution for those dead set on embedding printer profiles. Can anyone forward me a profile they want to use? I'll return it with some brief instructions.

OK?
