Summary

A major difference between v4 International Color Consortium (ICC) profiles and earlier versions is the v4 Perceptual Reference Medium (PRM), which is a virtual large-gamut reflection print similar to prints obtained using high-quality photo printers and glossy paper. The sRGB v4 ICC preference profile is a v4 replacement for commonly used sRGB v2 profiles, which gives better results in workflows that implement the ICC v4 specification. The sRGB v4 profile is different from commonly used sRGB v2 ICC profiles in three fundamental ways that are discussed in the chapter. ICC v2 sRGB profiles can be grouped into five different types depending on the nature of the ICC-absolute colorimetric rendering intent. This chapter contains detailed descriptions of four different example workflows.
