Greyscale profile lost after save as
« on: December 13, 2012, 05:56:51 PM »
When using Save As with greyscale images, the image profile seems to be deleted from the new image. According to PM info, the profile is still there, but when opening the image in Photoshop, I get the following error: "The embedded ICC profile cannot be used because the ICC profile is invalid.  Ignoring the profile." I use Grey Gamma 2.2, but other greyscale profiles behave the same way.

This is not intermittent, it happens every time (at least for me).

Please see this posting and answer as many questions as you can:

Please also post a sample file that reproduces the problem.

Sorry... completely forgot to post system details.

MacBook Pro Early 2008, Intel
OS 10.7.5
Photo Mechanic Version 5.0, build 13444 (c5a5ad3)

I'm going to post 3 images; an original image, a version created by PM with the Save As command, and a screenshot showing the Save As settings.
