My displays are color calibrated every other month or so with a hardware calibration tool. When I take a screen shot of a profile aware app, such as photoshop or lightroom or some web browsers, I don't want the screen shot to be adjusted for my monitor. Is there an easy way to do this besides my current approach:
- goto system preferences, display, color calibration
- change the profile to a generic monitor one
- start the color aware application (most seem to require a fresh startup to deal with the change)
- take the screen shot
- change my profile back
- restart the application
To address @barryj's assertion that color profile only matters if I'm using a camera to take a picture of the display. Here are two screen shots of the same image, one with the default color profile applied to the monitor, and one with my custom profile applied, just to show you how much of a difference it really makes.
