I'm using Qimage to do layouts and in general save paper by printing to file and then using Imageprint to output the file. (B&W printing).



My question is regarding ICC profiles in Qimage and print to file.

Should I leave the ICC blank when I plan on using another application to print the file?

That would depend on your intentions. Are you using a specific printer profile in ImagePrint? If so, it might be best to use Adobe RGB or some other standard color space as your printer ICC profile so that images from different color spaces will all end up in the same (printer) color space.

Yes, I'm using IP with the associated paper profiles. I've been saving the Photoshop files with AdobeRGB, and then printing (to file) in Qimage with no profile selected.



Should I print with Adobe RGB selected?

Probably makes sense to print with Adobe RGB set as the printer profile. If the images are in Adobe RGB color space, no color conversion will take place but the printer profile set to Adobe RGB will ensure that Qimage embeds Adobe RGB into the printed files.
