Hi,
It could be useful to have the possibility to change the color profile of the image edited/created in IT when saving it.
For ex. with a pref for global setting (the system color profile or other) and a file by file setting (in the file selector window for ex.).
Have a look at Photo Complete for ex.
For now, we can use colors using RGB/CMYK profiles but the IT document is always save with a embed sRVB profile.

Hi,
I see here 2 suggestions. The first is saving color settings like the color profile. We will consider this when think about new updates.

The second, RGB <-> CMYK converter. We don't plan supporting CMYK now but maybe once we will come to adding this into our software.

Hi,
Imho it's the same "problem".
Saving a file with a CMYK profile would convert this file to CMYK.
Of course, for now we can use Preview.app to "assign/match to" any profile to any raster file but it could be quickier to be able to do that from IT.
And there's an ambiguity with IT as I can use CMYK sliders to set colors with Generators/Filters but the saved file is always a RGB file with the default system color profile.
So, if you add the possibilty to save a file with any RGB profile (sRGB, Adobe RGB (1998)…) in a future update why not add a "true" CMYK support?

Hi,
I showed our developers how profiles work in PhotoComplete and Preview.app. Thanks for examples.
