jtoolman, the videos do allow one to print using the same icc to get the same color from different software programs Based on paper and ink choice.

i don't see this as Basic Color Management. its more about how to make and use an ICC. which is a must when printing.

But isn't the act of making ICC profiles (to match color between different devices) just that: color management?

icc's are to match different OEMs ink to different kinds of paper. this is what the video showed.

a Custom Profile is needed to be made from the icc he made. then its best to use that icc when editing colors. even then it only helps the retoucher to get very close to the cymk ink. see the image below as to why its so hard to have your monitor match your print.
