ICM Proofing vs PhotoShop Proofing

    I'm using the ICM for proofing my printer output. I've the printer and
    monitor profiles.

    When I try to make a proofing with ICM and compare it with PhotoShop
    proofing, i see high differences.

    For example, ICM transform the white colors with yellow values. But
    when I make the proofing with the PhotoShop, it convert the white to
    light gray+blue (it is more realistic, and more accurate to the
    printed image).

    Photoshop can use the Microsoft ICM and an "Adobe Color Engine", with
    the same (light gray+blue) results.

    anyone knows why ?

    Note: I try all options in Photoshop (and using the windows ICM
    engine) to get yellow values without result.
    Note2: I use some other programs that use the ICM 2.0, with the same
    (yellow) results (I try with PaintShop Pro, the IcmView.exe, an
    example of the Black Book).

    I discover why the image appears yellow.

    The image appears yellow because I calibrate my monitor to a
    temperaature of 6500 (D65) and the printer profile is calibrated to
    5000 (D50), like all printer profiles !!!!. (ICM try to proof an image
    with 5000ºK printer profile in a monitor with 6500ºK, then it converts
    the image to yellow)

    When I calibrate the monitor to 5000 (too yellow in my opinion) all
    appears successfully.

    To know why Adobe appears correctly ... is something dark. See next
    discussion to learn about it:


    Thanks to all
