I am trying to set my HP ScanJet 4370 Photo scanner color profile to Adobe RGB 1998, which is the color profile I use in my D70. As directed by the HP help center, I have added and applied the profile via scanner properties, but when I open a scanned image in PS CS2, I get a pop-up dialog box saying "The document scan002.tif does not have an embedded RGB profile". The PS options offered are to (1) not color manage the image, or (2) assign the profile in PS CS2 - but I want it coming off the scanner per my settings. The HP help center says the problem must be with PS - which I think is BS. Does anyone have any suggestions or advice on getting the scanner to properly embed the RGB profile?

Thanks,
Mike

I could be guessing at the wrong issue here but I'm pretty sure your scanner needs an 'Input Profile' which is either a custom profile or the one furnished by HP. AdobeRGB is an 'Output Profile'. Your D70 also has an input profile but converts the files to AdobeRGB or SRGB based on the options you choose. You can see the D70 profile (I'm assuming it's like the D1X) if you shoot RAW and use a program like CaptureOne DSLR to convert it. CaptureOne will allow you to leave the input profile attached... PS CS2 won't, it insists on an output profile.

Anyway, you may be able to set the HP scanner driver to default to Adobe RGB as an output profile, but that would be a different setting than applying a custom input profile like you would have if you used a MacBeth profiling system. Hard to say for sure without sitting down at your computer. Hopefully someone out there has that same scanner or HP's tech support can can give you the setting you need to change.

Good luck,
Chip

Thanks from one ex-Birmingham boy to another - I grew up in Crestwood on the southeast side and went to Woodlawn High in the early sixties.

I also have a question about scanner resolution. I scan both 35mm negatives and up to 8x10 photos. The resoluton in dpi runs from 150 to 4800, with defaults generally in the 150 - 200 dpi range. I would think that higher res would be better, especially for smaller images. Do you have any advice on selecting a resolution?
