Embed ICC Profiles into TIFF Images
« on: February 07, 2007, 06:02:13 PM »
Is there a reason why PM will not embed ICC Profiles into TIFF Images?
Currently using Graphic Converter to accomplish this task but would like to use one Pre-Pixel application to manage images.

thanks

Well, the answer is because we haven't added it yet!  In general it isn't a good idea to modify TIFF files by adding tags, but since we started doing this (in a safe way) for the purposes of embedding IPTC/XMP, we could extend this to ICC profiles (already thought about it).  I'll see about getting this added for 4.5 but no promises (what sounds easy often ends-up being more difficult than expected).

For JPEG files, it was relatively easy to do since these files can be "spliced" for the insertion of an ICC profile (actually, it is a bit more complicated when you consider ICC profiles that are larger than 64K).
