6 - File Color Spaces

Your files are tagged with the color space with which they were created.

Converting Color Spaces

You can convert a file from one color space to the other.

Go to Image > Convert Color Profile.


Make a copy of the file before conversion (File > Duplicate).

You should always keep a copy of the file in the original color space.

Then, you can use the file for later conversions to other printer profiles as you try different papers and inks, or buy a new printer.

The next stop down the photography system is monitors.
