Converting from RGB to CMYK with ICC profile

Recommended Posts



Just purchased AP as a quick & unbloated alternative to PS (stupid cloud).


I work as a print designer and something I use to do a lot in PS was converting images from RGB to CMYK with a specific colour profile (eg: sRGB -> ISO coated 300%). 


However, if I choose "document -> Convert ICC Profile" in AP I only see RGB-profiles (and no rendering options).


I can convert of course with "document -> Colour Format", but that doesn't give me any options on how I want to convert my images…


Am I missing something?


kind regards,

Just checked and you are not missing anything.


Another thing I noticed while investigating is that while PS allows 16bit CMYK, Photo doesn't.


I know there is an ongoing debate about 8 vs 16 bit but for master files, I figure it's best to have the most data to work with as you can.
