LR4 : no access to the "ICC profile name" info of images. Why ?

May 3, 2012 7:09 AM

I use the print module to create jpeg files for remote (lab) printing.

I convert these images to the relevant printer/paper profile.


Now when I include those pictures in the catalog

I have no clue about the associated profile (glossy/mat paper etc).


Later if I want to reprint I must use another software

to check the profile and redirect images to the right printer/paper.


LR reads the info but doesn't display it (in metadata).

Why ?

    Because there's no point to reimport them.

    Send them to your lab and delete the exports.

    You could use the ExifMeta plugin to view the ICC profile in LR.
