                 What is the importance of ICC color profile management? In simple terms it is like a Hifi stereo, where high fidelity is seeked from source to speakers, passing through microphone, recoding media, player and amplifier. Much the same, ICC color profile management tries to maintain color fidelity from photographic subject through the camera to the output media screen, print, paper and projector. Luckily digital photography has taken out one source of distortion, the storage media (as the &CD;-ROM did in the audio field).

Here follows an example of the differences in color language: one kind of green defined (by the same numbers) in one color space looks different in another color space. This is what happens when no color management is applied.
