Associating Profiles with Devices

The KcsSaveProfile() function, when supplied a KcsProfileDesc structure, associates that color profile with the supplied structure. Typically, a configuration or calibration program calls the KcsSaveProfile()function. The profile associated with the KcsDescription structure represents the last calibrated condition of the device. For more information on KcsSaveProfile(), see "KcsSaveProfile() ".

Many events can change the condition of a device. For example, as room lighting changes, so does the viewer's perception of a monitor's colors. Or, consider a color printer. When different kinds of paper are used in the printer, the printer's color condition changes. As conditions change, a user may associate a different profile with the device.
