I sent the follow snipped email and their response:

I have been following Bruce Fraser's http://www.creativepro.com/author/home/40.html suggested workflow lately with either my Nikon 5000 scanning or converting RAW Canon 1Ds files in Adobe Camera Raw using 16-bit Kodak ProPhoto RGB colour space. Then in Photoshop CS, I apply the PhotoKit Capture Sharpener http://www.creativepro.com/story/feature/20357.html . See why at the end of page 2 "Looking Sharp".

Would you be open to accepting this type of sharpened file? Even if reduced down to 8-bit, which unfortunately limits the customer's ability to do non-damaging large corrections, as in 16-bit? Though I know file size is a consideration, especially if they're being downloaded online.

Why don't you use embedded profiles either http://www.alamy.com/stock-photography-faqs-qc.asp#11 ? Why make the customer guess which profile they'd need to apply to see the correct colour?

And their reply:

----
John,

Our decision not to accept sharpened images was a careful one. Most printers sharpen images before publishing which can result in over-sharpening.

We advise that all files should be in Adobe 98, and the files that we provide our customers with have consistent colour profiles.

Kind Regards,

Pippa

Ok, now I'm confused with the color space Q. Why would they want non-embedded images?

Any ideas?

Thanks,
John
