I saw a video where James was clicking on Profiles from the Dashboard (I think that is what it is called) to change the ICC profile of an image without having to go to Document - Convert ICC Profile. Yet, when I go into View - Studio, there is no option there to activate an ICC Profile so that you can access it from the Dashboard.

Thanks for your reply, but I think we are talking about different things. In the video "Big Stopper Effect", James is able to change the ICC Profile directly from the Dashboard, rather than having to go into Document/Convert ICC Profile. Typically the options that show up on the Dashboard (although I am not sure that is the right name for the right hand panel) can be turned on and off by going into View/Studio. When I go there, there is no option for turning on Profiles. So my question is How do you turn it on so it shows up as an option in the Dashboard. Hope this clarifies my query a bit.

Thanks but that is not what I am asking. I know how to change a file's ICC profile for Export. What I want to find out is how to add a Profile tab in my dashboard (if that is the right name of the panel that sits on the right of my AP). I know it can be done because I saw James doing it on the video I  mentioned earlier. Now, it is possible that that video was created with a prior version of AP and that in the newest version that is no longer an option. But if it is still an option I would like to know how to enable it. Typically to enable these tabs, you have to go to View/Studio and enable it from there. But when I go there, there is no option for "Profiles". I already know that I can change the ICC profile of an image (prior to exporting) by going to Document/Convert ICC profile or Assign ICC profile. I am looking for a shortcut. Hope this clarifies my query a bit more. Thanks!

I just watched that video (interesting; thanks for mentioning it) and James did nothing with ICC profiles during it. Perhaps you meant some other video?

My apologies but the video where I saw James doing this is "Wide Color Profiles vs RGB". Attached is the screen snapshot that shows what it looks like.1535291667_ScreenShot2018-05-25at4_29_33PM.thumb.png.c3c798460d7ed8a82b40887ac97333ac.png

Ok. Now I am embarrassed. :$, I looked more closely and realized that the Profiles only show up in the Develop Persona. I guess that takes care of that problem. Sorry for waisting your time.

Thanks for the clarification.

He's in the Develop Persona at that point, which will have a different set of panels than in the Photo Persona.
