The word is out: Feature #10 is Color Settings, Photoshop’s command for regulating all things related to color management. It affects every image you create. Color Settings is located under the Edit menu, in case you’re wondering.
For those of you tracking the contest, the winner is jude, who guessed “Edit… Color Settings…,” which is spot-on.
Fully 25 of you guessed this feature (or something very much like it, as in “color management” or “color profiles,” both of which are fundamentally correct). And frankly that amazes me. It means a surprising minority of you are reading my mind with an alarming degree of accuracy.
Which is excellent news. Because now it’s time to guess Feature #9. Hint: It takes something bad and makes it good. Click here to take the survey (or skip it if you filled it out last week) and submit your entry!
And now a few words about this week’s feature: The Color Settings command is your way of establishing reliable color management policies across the entire Creative Suite. While admittedly techy, it ensures that what you see is what everyone else sees as well. And it’s not hard to set up. Watch the video to learn more.

I’m eager to make sure the survey works to everyone’s satisfaction. This week’s survey includes a skip option for those of you who submitted last week. (Note that if you skip and did not fill out the survey, your submission won’t be counted.) Please let me know your experience.
