Default Extract an ICC profile?

Can I extract an ICC profile from a TIFF (or any other format) file using
Photoshop?

I hear Corel can do it, but what about Photoshop?

Default Re: Extract an ICC profile?

Yes, I know that it can read them. But I want to *extract* them and save
them to my HDD, like CorelDRAW.

I need to create some artwork in Illustrator and need it to be color-managed
using the profile used in the TIFF files. I *could* ask for them, but that'd
take time.

Does anyone know of any freeware tools that could rip the profiles off a
TIFF (or any other format)?

I found out that *Imaging for Windows* shows the profile information under
File->Color Management, see if you have that application installed. It's a
Kodak application provided to Microsoft. I don't know how I got it on my
system but maybe it comes with the operating system or some other install.
