Namespace: Aurigma.GraphicsMill
Assembly: Aurigma.GraphicsMill (in Aurigma.GraphicsMill.dll)


public sealed class ColorProfile : IDisposable


This class encapsulates an ICC color profile. Typically it is used as a parameter in color management classes/methods, however it also has a number of useful properties that allow obtaining extra details about the profile. In particular, you can get metainformation such as Copyright, Description, DeviceClass (a device kind the profile is intended for), Manufacturer, and Model. You can also get a ColorSpace the profile is made for. Static property ProfileDirectory returns a system folder where all profiles should be stored.

You can create ColorProfile instance in three ways:

  1. Constructor creates a ColorProfile instance from specified file.
  2. FromScreen()() creates a ColorProfile instance from the color profile associated with monitor.
  3. FromSrgb()() Creates a ColorProfile instance from a standard sRGB color profile.


using (var bitmap = new Bitmap(@"Images\in.jpg"))
    bitmap.ColorManagement.ColorManagementEngine = ColorManagementEngine.LittleCms;
    if (bitmap.ColorProfile == null)
        bitmap.ColorProfile = ColorProfile.FromSrgb();
    bitmap.ColorManagement.DestinationProfile = new ColorProfile(@"_Input\ColorProfiles\EuroscaleCoated.icc");
