As I asked in the Photoshop Windows forum, what profile(s) have they sent you, along with what instruction? A printer profile? A document profile? Both?
It may be that you'll want to work on your images in one of the standard document profiles (ProPhoto RGB, Adobe RGB, sRGB) then when you're ready to deliver images to the publisher you'll want to do a Convert to Profile operation.
But that's getting ahead of things. You really haven't given quite enough information just yet.
Is there any way for camera raw to load the ICC profile so I can see what it's going to look like while I'm making the adjustments in camera raw, not after they're already done??
No...you'll have to set the RGB Workflow Options in Camera Raw for one of 4 RGB output profiles. If you are not sure about what to use, I would suggest reading up on color management. The profiles provided by your printer can be used in Photoshop for soft proofing and then color separations...but they can not be used in Camera Raw.
See reply from other forum, they've given me two printer profiles.
Think I will just edit in ACR using Adobe RGB then do the soft proofing in photoshop. Applying the ICC profile in the soft proof didn't change the image that much.
Thanks for your help.
