Ignore EXIF Color Space utilities

When opening images from digital cameras, Adobeᆴ Photoshopᆴ Elements 2.0 reads the ICC color profile and EXIF metadata supplied by the camera to determine which color space it should use to interpret each image. Certain digital cameras do not embed ICC profiles, but specify the sRGB color space in the EXIF data, even though they allow the photographer to use different spaces. As a result, Photoshop Elements behaves as if each image is tagged with an sRGB ICC profile.

Running this utility will instruct Photoshop Elements 2.0 to ignore the color space specified in EXIF metadata. A second utility is also included to restore the normal behavior of Photoshop Elements 2.0.
