By default the proofs function copies the embedded color profile of the source image to the output image without modifying the colorspace. Select the "Colorspace conversion" checkbox and then click on the "Settings..." button to convert between colorspaces. The dialog below will be displayed:




Press on the "..." button to browse for the color profile you wish to convert to. Select the rendering intent to use from the drop down list (the rendering intent controls how "out of gamut" colors are handled and is usually set to "perceptual" for photographs). It is only possible to convert the color space of images that contain an embedded profile describing their color space.


Color management and the use of color profiles is a complex subject and a detailed description of how to use them is beyond the scope of this manual.
