When you have multiple files open at once, each file can have its own color space independent of the main working space settings you’ve chosen in the Color Settings dialog box. While the title bar of a document automatically displays the color mode for the file, accessing the Color Settings dialog box just to find out what color space your file is in can be quite cumbersome.
What’s the status?
Luckily there’s a quicker way to access that information, via the status bar. Simply choose Show > Document Profile from the Status bar’s pop-up menu located in the bottom-left corner of your image, as shown in Figure A. Now each image will display its color space in the status bar as displayed in Figure A. For Windows 7/CS users, the status bar is located at the bottom of the main Photoshop window, not the image window.
