    Color Management: Preserve Numbers v. Preserve Embedded Profiles

    JasonDD210 Level 1



      I have been advised by my Printing Service Provider to use "Preserve Numbers (Ignore Linked Profiles)" as the CMYK policy, yet they have sent me their own ICC profile for CMYK. What I don't understand is that, if I have they have sent me the ICC profile and I am using that was the CMYK working space, why can't I just use the "Preserve Embedded Profiles" policy instead? That would make sense to me. I don't see the point of getting an ICC profile and then using "Preserve Numbers" which is going to mess up the colours because it will just use the CMYK %s I have got in InDesign.


      Is this normal?
