Colour profile

Colour profiles are used by colour management systems to control colour reproduction.

Operating principle

A colour profile describes the properties of the colour reproduction of a particular device (scanner, monitor, proof) or machine in print. This table compares the device-dependent colour values (e.g. RGB for monitors) and the device-independent color values (usually CIELAB).
