Hi, Mauro!

Monitor profile can be source of conversion in cases when the image painted or 
edited directly in the monitor color space. For example, the results of  
creative work at a workstation without any color management. They will be 
straight into the monitor color space. In such cases the RGB numbers of the 
image represents directly the monitor color space in which the image was 
created or edited. So, to bring such images to standard or just to print them 
correctly, You should use certain monitor ICC profile as source in conversion 
If You've got an artwork and the display of painter workstation wasn't profiled 
and was far from standard, the artwork appearance on painter display and on 
Your display will be different. You will be unable to view or print the artwork 
correctly. In this case You can initiate the profiling of the painter display 
(without display calibration and tuning). After the profiling You can assign 
the profile to already obtained artworks and get the same color as the painter

Hi all.

I have a general question:

For monitor compensation and soft proof the monitor profile is used as 

There are typical cases in which the monitor profile is used as the conversion 

Thank you.
