The International Color Consortium (ICC) developed a desktop standard for digital color reproduction known as the ICC profile. The ICC profile is a text characterization of how a device handles color. Output profiles are created for the combination of ink and media, and resolution and dither type of the output device. When selecting a profile, be sure to select the profile that matches these criteria. For output devices that print at multiple resolutions, the PostScript® software RIP provides profiles for each of those resolutions. Choosing a profile with the wrong resolution will severely affect the output. Profiles with different dither types will not greatly affect the output. However, they may cause slight shifts in color. To add an ICC output profile from another source, click the Add button as shown in Figure 1. Click the Info button for information pertaining to the ICC output profile that has been chosen under Profile.
