How can I use an abstract or device link profile in PS6?

I have read that profiles created with ColorThinkPro should be usable in Photoshop, but I can’t see the profiles in the assign profile dialog box.


The ColorThink Pro manual talks about using abstract profiles here.

Assigning is something best done with a working space profile like sRGB or adobeRGB. If you want to apply an abstract profile to an image, then you’d definitely want to use “Convert to profile.” The abstract profile should show up fine in the drop down list under convert to. You may need to have your image in Lab space in order to convert to an abstract profile.

Thank you,


You can also use abstract and devicelink profiles (within the same color mode) in the Color Lookup adjustment and adjustment layer.
