The image with the profile got converted to sRGB once
placed in Word, the other obviously stayed the same.
Where did you find the details of the color conversions?
Are there some
obvious color management options I missed in Word? And
you say you're on a PC. Hmmuh.
Its a miracle!
Just "Insert image from file" in your doc (a TIFF image
with a profile that is).
When transformed in a pdf with Color Mgmt options "ON",
Through what chain of events, Danny? Print to Acrobat
PDF? I suppose you do
have the PDF Writer plug-in installed on you PC.
I only use PDF Writer when I want to keep the active links
of my Word doc in the final pdf. I prefer to use the "PDF
printer" aka Distiller (less Power, more Control!).
With the same file, I then assigned Adobe (1998) as the
working space and now everything is managed as being
OK. If I'm not mistaking, the assignement you refer to
is through Acrobat Pro Preferences.
Through Acrobat Distiller, the app.
Further, I believe these Preferences
are not stored with the PDF itself.
Yes and no (please continue)!
So, the minute this PDF is opened in
there is no telling in whose (competent or incompetent)
hands it will fall into? Could you force AdobeRGB onto the PDF like store it in the file itself?
No!. Pre-flighting the pdf shows that the image is
assigned the proper profile assigned using Distiller. This
info is kept in the pdf.
Don't you find it off that the colors are now off? I'm
sure you could open
up some color image in Photoshop, convert it from back
and forth from sRGB
to AdobeRGB a couple of time and you wouldn't still end
up with "too saturated" as a result?
The convertion within Word is a ONE-WAY street.
So, someone with MS Word and a full version of Acrobat,
the Pro version,
*can* reasonably well manage RGB colors between Word and
the world PDF?
There is hope. Never saw the final printed doc of these

BTW, have you finished that excellent section on your
site about the Munsell ColorChecker chart?
Just updated it, go see it!. With data from many who (like
you) saw my request, on my site and in the Rob Galbraith's
forum, and sent their ColorChecker spectral data. The more
I will get spectral data (or just L*a*b*), the better the
simulated RGB and L*a*b* images will become.
