An e-mail client is a non-color-managed application, so it just writes the RGB numbers into the display memory. The only way to get accurate color in a non-color-managed application is to convert to the color space of the video card monitor combination itself. If they've profiled their monitor, and they send you a copy of that profile, then you can dump that profile into your profiles folder and then use Photoshop to convert the image to that color space. Of course, it will be different for each client. It would probably be easier to set them up with a viewer that understands color profiles. Of course, if they haven't profiled their own monitors, then fuggedaboudit. To take into account the printer, you need to use soft proofing. However, I believe that's only something that can be done while viewing in Photoshop. I've never used the feature, but I don't think there's a way of saving an image that's been soft proofed, so that you can send it to someone else. Maybe someone will correct me if I'm wrong about that. -- Ciao, Paul D.
