    Reduce bit depth or convert color profile first? (best practices question)

    HDphotoOffice

      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!
