Color Management in Photo Mechanic

Print This Article 

  All Keyboard Shortcuts 

    We recommend calibrating your monitor before working with color management. Photo Mechanic uses the system monitor profile to display color using ICC (International Color Consortium) standards.

    Tip: For more information about ICC profile standards, visit the International Color Consortium.

Color Management Preferences

    From the file menu, navigate to Preferences> Color Management. Set the default ICC profile for photos where no profile is specified. 

    Choose whether or not to use color management for thumbnails and previews. (Color management is slower but more accurate.) 

    Choose whether or not to embed ICC profiles during copy or ingest. 

Preview Toggle

    You can toggle color management on and off when previewing a photo by clicking the icon in the example below.

Assign a Color Profile to an Image(s)

    From the menu, navigate to Tools> Embed ICC Profile into JPEGS. You can select a predefined profile, upload a custom profile, and choose whether to override any existing profiles. 

    Note: This command assigns a profile to the photo for accurate display, but it does not edit the colors in the photo.
