Color profile management

Expression Studio 2.0

Microsoft Expression Media supports International Color Consortium (ICC) standards for color profiles for image files in .jpg, .tif, .pict, .pdf, and Adobe Photoshop formats. This enables Expression Media to provide color profile management from input source and catalog through proof and final printing.

Expression Media gives you color-accurate display in all views (List, Thumbnail, Media, Light Table, and Slide Shows) by using ColorSync, a color management technology.

To turn off color profile matching

  1. On the Application menu, point to Preferences, and then click Media Rendering.

  2. Click the Images tab, and then clear the Color match check box.

On the Action menu, the Manage Color Profiles command enables you to embed RGB and CMYK color profiles for individual files that use profiles defined by ColorSync.

After you click Manage Color Profiles on the Action menu and a dialog box appears, Expression Media displays the image in Media view, letting you preview the application of various color profiles. You can also remove profiles in this dialog box.

If this menu option is not available, do the following:

  1. On the Application menu, click Preferences, and then click Media Rendering.

  2. On the Images tab, select the Color match check box.

To assign profiles to a group of files

  1. On the Images tab, select the Color match check box.

  2. Select a group of images, and then, on the Action menu, click Manage Color Profiles.

  3. Select a color profile to embed for each type of image color space (RGB, CMYK, or Gray). This prevents you from embedding an inappropriate profile that could potentially ruin the image. The options in each menu are defined by ColorSync.

  4. Click OK.

    While embedding the profiles in the original files, Expression Media creates a new thumbnail for each image according to the new embedded color profile.

  5. You can also remove profiles from a group of files in this dialog box by selecting Remove Embedded Profile for each image color space.

If you have catalogs that contain thumbnails that are not color-managed, and you want them to be, select all items in the catalog, and then, on the Action menu, click Rebuild Item. This creates new thumbnails for all images according to the new embedded color profile and the settings of the Size menu.
