For making final deliverable files from working files, is it best to convert to a new color profile before reducing bit depth? Or vise versa?
Our working files are 16 bit with the ProPhoto color space. Our deliverable files are 8 bit AdobeRGB tiffs and sRGB jpegs. We convert using relative colorimetric with black point compensation. Does it make a difference which order these changes are made in?
Thanks in advance for your help!
A profile conversion recalculates RGB values, so yes, it should be done in 16 bit depth.
