Hi Patrick,

Yes, that is possible. When you click on the profile button you'll get a dropdown with all profiles installed on your system, including any display profiles.

Why would you want to do so, though? This setting is only for telling PM what profile to use for images that don't have any embedded. And that is rarely (if ever) your display profileā€¦

And if you mean for PM to use your calibrated display profile for viewing, then it already does that; PM uses the display profile as set in your system preferences.

Patrick,

While it is possible, you'd never want to do that.  If an image has no profile and you have PM assign your monitor's profile to it and it is the same profile currently assigned to your display then no color management will occur.  It is best to choose a profile that your camera shoots in.  This is usually sRGB or Adobe RGB 1998.
