    Liliia,
    Can you explain the last sentence a bit further, and give a recommendation which profile to set when adjusting the image at a time when it is not yet clear which output format/color space is targetied? The sentence I mean is :"Note, a permanent color space profile seen in the Viewer may produce different colors than the actual output image".
    Thanks

    Capture One displays the image in the Viewer using the ICC profile that’s selected in the highlighted Process Recipe. By default, when you go to the View -> Proof Profile menu, the option Selected Recipe (Default) is selected. However, you can purposefully choose another recipe to display the color space permanently by going through the list of available ones in the View -> Proof Profile menu. That way, a permanent color space profile seen in the Viewer may produce different colors than the actual output image. It means that the way the image is displayed in the Viewer may be different from that of the processed or exported one. For example, if you have Euroscale Coated v2 profile selected in View -> Proof Profile and Adobe RGB (1998) in the ICC Profile field in the Process Recipe tool, the output image and the one in the Viewer will look different.

    Consider that it is up to your choice which specific profile to set when adjusting the image. This also depends on the particular purpose the image is being adjusted. To make sure that the edited and output images look the same way, make sure that the Selected Recipe (Default) optionin the View -> Proof Profile menu is selected.

    If you process your image with a different profile than you have selected for the viewer, the file output of course can differ from the screen output.

    Thank you, understood.

    Regards
