PF file extension - ICC profile file
What is pf file? How to open pf files?
File type specification:
An ICC profile is a set of data that characterizes a color input or output device, or a color space, according to standards published by the International Color Consortium (ICC).
An ICC profile is a file that describes how a particular device reproduces color; that is, it describes the device's color space. ICC profiles can be created for three types of devices: a display device (monitor), an input device (a scanner or digital camera), or an output device (a printer). A profile that accurately characterizes a device gives you the best results in a color-managed wokflow.
ICC profiles can be either generic or custom. Generic profiles are created by the device manufacturer. The manufacturer creates the profile by using profiling software and instruments to examine the color characteristics of a group of the same devices under controlled conditions. The generic profile that comes with a device is not specific to that device or its working conditions.
Custom profiles describe a specific device under set working conditions. Typically, custom profiles are created by using a color measuring instrument, such as a spectrophotometer or colorimeter, and its companion software. You can also create custom display profiles by using Adobe Gamma (Windows), the Display Calibrator Assistant (Mac OS X), or ColorSync (Mac OS 9.x) to modify a generic profile for your monitor. (Adobe Gamma is a control panel that installs with various Adobe programs, including Photoshop for Windows. See the Related Documents section of this document for more information on using Adobe Gamma.) Third-party applications let you create a display profile by using a colorimeter to characterize your screen; some also let you create an input profile for your scanner and a output profile for your printer.
