Color Settings... vs Convert to Profile...
on Oct 25, 2016 at 5:37:13 pm

I have a document that I made. Under color settings, it says North American General Purpose 2, and the Working Spaces are first sRGB IEC... But when I go to Convert to Profile, it says Profile: Apple RGB.

So, I'm confused. What is the working space of the document? I'm more familiar with AE's working spaces.

Thanks!

The working space is just that: a space to work on the image without changing the existing color profile (if any). It looks like you image was already set to Apple RGB and you were using sRGB to do your editing (working space). Using Convert will change the image from Apple RGB to whatever space you like. If your images are usually Apple RGB, you can change your working space to the same.

I do a lot of photo work so I use Adobe RGB for my working space and my default color space. I also like the way it handles my colors. If I'm working for the web, I use sRGB because it more Slidell resembles the final colors and most browsers ignore color space anyway.

Hope this helps.

Save early. Save often.
