Easily Convert The Color Profile of an Image in Photoshop

software: Adobe Photoshop

I have previously written about the differences of Color Profiles, but here I would like to talk about how to convert between the Color Profiles in Photoshop.

To begin with, ensure that Photoshop is open, and the image you’d like to convert is also opened within Photoshop.

From here, select: edit -> convert to profile

From here you are given a menu as shown below:

There are a few items that should be of interest to you inside of here.

First, take a look at the color profile or color space that your image is currently in, ie. the Source Space. If you see above, the image is in sRGB color space.

Next, you can see there are many choices for Destination Space , which only you will know which to pick now!

For more information on what color space or profile you should be using, have a read of this article on the differences in sRGB, and AdobeRGB color profiles.

Hope this helps!
