represents an ICC color profile that can convert between the independent color space "ics" and the device-dependent color space "device".


  • ColorProfileData is used to uniquely define device-dependent color spaces such as "RGB" or "CMYK".
  • Color profiles ensure a good conversion between color spaces and the nearly device-independent color rendering.
  • ColorProfileData can be imported from an ICC file or an image file with an embedded color profile.
  • Using ColorProfileData[][intent], the rendering intent can be specified. Possible settings are "PerceptualProfile" (default), "SaturationProfile", "MediaRelativeColorimetricProfile", and "ICCAbsoluteColorimetricProfile".

Possible Issues  (1)

Some color profiles may not permit a faithful representation of colors from other spaces:
