    Hello all.

    I recently had a photo printed which came back noticeably cooler than normal and was told a profile was embedded. I am usually very careful about this and upon investigation can not seem to find a way to check a file to see if a profile is embedded.

    Is there any way to see whether a color profile is embedded in a file I create?

    I am using Photoshop Elements 2.0.

    Many thanks

    I'm pretty sure Preview will tell you this, and that it has an option to strip the profile as well...

    Preview does indeed show what profile, if any, is attached! Thank you.

    I had spent some time googling on this matter and nothing about Preview ever came up...just a ton of information on creating color matched workflows.

    As far as I can tell, Preview will also let you change profiles, but I don't see a way to explicity remove the profiles altogether if one is embedded, which is all right; I only need to be aware what is attached and this will suffice.

    Many thanks again.
