I'm getting this message on almost every file I open with Photoshop CS6 (I had CS5.5 and this never happened).

Besides not being sure if any one of the options could screw up my file, which worries me a little bit, what is really lacking here is a "don't ask again" checkbox. It's becoming maddening, especially considering I do batch processing and it asks this for every file. what can I do?

Missing Profile Screenshot

Missing Profile

The RGB document "X" has a file format that does not support embedded color profiles. What would you like to do?

  • Leave as is (don't color manage)
  • Assign working RGB: _
  • Assign Profile: _
    • [ ] and then convert document to working RGB

note 2: if I could upload a screenshot of the error message, and still entered the text as image description, would it be searchable? – figha Aug 20 '12 at 6:35
