ICC Color profile in captures?

Hi,

I'm doing lots of captures for a book of photography and there's a problem with Snagit: it doesn't use icc color profiles.

That means that it cannot preserve accurately the color of the images and photographies showed into an image editor, ie. This is not a big problem for common captures but it is when you work with photos and high gamut monitors (with color gamuts similar to Adobe RGB).

This has a very easy solution: just assign and embed the active screen icc profile to the compatible file (TIFF, JPG, PNG). Screen capture in a Mac does it.

Even better: if it allows to (first) assign the monitor's profile and then (second) convert to a desired profile (like AdobeRGB or others) it will be perfect.

Regards,

Hi and thanks for submitting your idea!

As outlined in our New Community Processes post, feature requests are open to voting up through the 1st of the month (this month is slightly different, due to the holidays) where we will then tally the votes and present the findings to our product teams. To ensure we have the most accurate data, on the 1st of the month we will be locking the threads that were listed in the Feature Request Round-up that was posted on the 15th. Once we have reviewed the submitted feature requests, our product team(s) may respond to the request, and if that is the case then that thread will then be unlocked for further discussion.

In the event that your idea is not selected for a response feel free to resubmit the idea and share it with your colleagues to garner as much exposure as possible!

Thank you again for your idea and we look forward to hearing more from you!
