Oops - just reread the above - Didn't mean to imply one should do that "convert to profile" thing on a regular basis - do that as an experiment. On a regular basis it would usually be more appropriate to set up the Photoshop 6 RGB preview using your profile and edit the original image RGB file (unconverted) with a layer to get back into a color region you like as witnessed through the preview. This editing via preview prevents archiving the file in a small gamut printer space which is what would happen if you did convert to profile then saved the edits. The only reason you may want to convert to profile and edit would be to add the very few colors (like pure Epson cyan) that are out of gamut of the Adobe RGB edit space. It is also nice to *experiment* with the "convert to profile" method since the info palette will then show you the printer's real RGB space numbers and you may get a bit of a better understanding as to what the profile is doing. It would be great if Photoshop 6 let you set the info palette to two RGB settings (pre and post profile) so you could see them side by side like you can see RGB and CMYK numbers side by side. Visually you can do that with two views, one set to preview in profiled printer RGB space and one set to preview in the original Adobe RGB edit space. But I like to see how the numbers change from space to space since I don't always trust my eyes these days so I think a dual RGB info palette could be helpful - especially for those printer colors that are beyond the range of my monitor's RGB space but which can still be edited in Adobe RGB space. Then again I experiment with some mighty strange inksets so what I hanker for may not be on most people's wish list. Dan - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
