Why do I need color management

If your document requires accurate color representation, you should consider using color management. The complexity of your workflow and the ultimate destination of the images are also important considerations. If your documents are destined only for online viewing, color management may not be as important. However, if you plan to open images in another application, such as Adobe Photoshop, or if you are creating images for print or multiple types of output, the use of color management is essential.

Color management lets you do the following:

• reproduce colors consistently across your digital imaging workflow, especially when opening documents that were created in other applications

• reproduce colors consistently when sharing files with others

• preview, or "soft-proof", colors before they are printed

• reduce the need to adjust and correct images when sending images to different destinations

A color management system does not offer identical color matching (this is not technically possible), but it greatly improves the color representation.
