Both are true -- what you state and "for 99 percent of photographers who use color management, it is done as a single process with a hardware/software calibration package." But flame warriors refuse to read carefully (or if they do, willfully distort).

You couldn’t be again more wrong, as many have attempted to explain to you, they are not the same process. But don’t take our word for it, the way this works, and the text that dismisses what you’ve incorrectly written above is seen below. Enough examples or do you need even more (there are plenty of other correct resources to dismiss what you have written?):

Colour management works by two key process - calibration and profiling. Unfortunately these two processes are often confused** with each other.

Calibration and profiling are not the same thing. Monitor calibration and profiling are terms that mean different things

Calibration vs. Characterization. Some of the terminology can be confusing. Many people** are initially confused about the difference between Calibration and Characterization.

We all know that colour management is the key to a great print, but what some people** don’t know, however, is exactly what individual steps make up the colour management process. So, what’s the difference between calibration and profiling in colour management?

After the monitor is calibrated, a profile is made.

Calibrating vs. profiling. Calibrating a device, such as a monitor or printer, is different from profiling a device. Here’s how they’re different.

** Confused indeed, the text above in red clearly illustrates you fall into that group. Do some research, read the URLs above and learn! That you are confused about this topic in no way justifies your attempt to confuse others here.
