    Your colours should look fine within director... I wouldn't worry to much
    about colour profiles as the user is not going to be printing what they see
    within the director interface unless you want them to and the chances of
    them printing from the screen at professional quality will be highly
    unlikely!...

    To look at it another way. If i give you produce a director presentation
    and give it to 20 people using 20 different computers chances are not a
    single one of those computers will be using the same colour profile for the
    monitor nor will they have the brightness or contrast setting set exactly
    the same! so why you worrying about colour profiles????

    It only really matters for printed material. If they look good on screen
    then thats all that matters...

    I haven't tested this but:

    Director can't deal with color profiles - it will display the colors the same as Photoshop does with Monitor Compensation turned OFF, so you should work this way in Photoshop. If there is a mismatch between Photoshop & Indesign then it should ask you to convert the profiles - you should do this so that it color-corrects as it opens in Photoshop.
