Actually the plugin is reading the profile attached as parasite. Last
time I checked, only the TIFF files were abe to read/write the
profiles as color parasites. There is no problem to read the color
profile as parasite but the read/write color profile should also be
implemented in the other file formats wich support embeebed color
profiles (i.e. jpg)

I agree, the use of directories to store the profiles provides an easy
and quick way to select the different profiles.

Well, obviouslly I am not a great interface designer ;). Although I
improved it using some of the users suggestions it is really difficult
to desing a simple interface wich supports all the different plugin
funcionalities. I will appreciate any further suggestion wich
clarifies the plugin interface.
