Let's continue with our Color Management theme here and go ahead and take a look at working in different color spaces.
So by default, this image as you can see, as denoted by this little thing in the Title bar sown here at the bottom, is in the sRGB color space.
Now, as we already know sRGB is a bad thing to have on your images inside of Photoshop. So what we are actually going to do is we are going to change the color profile of this image and you can do this one of two ways. You can either assign a profile to your image or you can convert your image to a profile. So let's take a look at exactly what the difference is between assigning a profile and converting to a profile.
In order to get to these settings, I am going to come up here to the Edit menu and I am just going to go ahead and chose Assign Profile. Now when I get into this dialog box here, I can go ahead and pick my new color setting down here in the Profiles or I can simply select my Working RGB space. This is exactly what I want to do because I want my image to have the same profile as my working space.
So I am going to go ahead and click that little check-box there and when I do that, you should see on your screen a shift in this image or the image becomes more warm and it's also a little bit more saturated; it's actually going to look really bad when you start to click that new space.
So we are going to go ahead now and we are going to cancel out of this because when you assign a profile to an image, you do not actually change the color in the image at all. No actual pixels are affected. Only the way the image is displayed on screen is changed here. So what we are going to do is we are going to cancel this out and we are going to come back up to the Edit menu and this time we are going to chose Convert to Profile.
Now when we get into the Convert to Profile dialog box, what we are going to do is we are going to change our Destination Space to our Adobe RGB (1998) and when we do that, you will not see any change on your image at all and the reason you are not seeing a color shift or an increase in saturation is because Photoshop is now changing the actual color values of the image. So the converted colors are displayed the exact same as they were in the old color space, but now the values of the color are actually matching our new color space and what this is going to do is, is unify our color settings for this particular image and make sure that we don't have any perceptual problems when we are working on this image later on.
Now that we have got all of this taken care of, we can go ahead and click OK and this image should be in the correct color space, matching our working space and we shouldn't have anymore color problems as we work throughout this image.
