Quick Review

  • Profiles are created by comparing measured values from a device with device-independent color values.
  • Generic profiles don't factor in the unique characteristics of your specific device and are thus of limited usefulness.
  • The differences in gamut between devices results in color that does not match between them.
  • There are three ways to get profiles for your device: use generic profiles from the manufacturer, pay to have profiles created, or create them yourself.
  • Printer profiling services provide a cost-effective way to obtain custom profiles for your imaging devices, such as printers.
