    Do Custom Color Profiles Embed Themselves Into DNGs?

    RFSLeander Level 1

      This is specifically about .dcp and .dcpr files.

      The question: When I open a raw DNG file in ACR or Lightroom and apply a custom color profile created with a Color Checker and the DNG Profile Editor, will that custom profile remain applied to the file when it is opened by another user? In other words  do custom profiles stay with a file?

      The background: I was shooting in very weird mixed lighting so I created a custom profile with the DNG Profile Editor. The client wants DNG files. So, how do I ensure that the client gets the custom color profile along with the DNG files? Does the profile become part of the file?
