In this article I will concentrate on the third component of the CMS option in SilverFast Ai and SilverFast Ai Studio.

The first section of the CMS options dialogue (Color Management) was explained in part 1 and the second section was explained in part 2 of the same article

The CMS options dialogue looks like this:

The third section “Embedded ICC profiles” is pretty straightforward, it has one checkbox, an indicator and a drop down menu.

third section "Embed ICC profiles"

Embed ICC profiles

Using this section you will specify whether or not an ICC profile should be embedded in case you decided to use Plug & Play CMYK profiles in the first section, you can then specify which profile should be used.

Embed ICC profile. If you mark the checkbox, a color profile will be embedded along with your resulting files, this option is active by default, if you unmark the checkbox, this option will be inactive.

Profile to embed. Is the line right below the checkbox, this line is only a display or indicator (it is not a menu). The profile that will be embedded to your resulting files is shown here. This profile is the one specified in the previous section under “internal” profile

Plug & Play. allows you to select the desired CMYK plug and play profile. This option is not active unless you have told otherwise in the first section under the menu “internal->Output”
