ColorSync is Apple?s color management standard and framework which has been built into the Mac OS for years.
ColorSync is a standard method for developers to call the operating system when they want their programs to correctly manage color. There are also provisions in ColorSync that allow developers to write their own Color Matching Methods and also for the users to select different ICC profiles to use. In some sense, ColorSync is the glue that holds it all together, but it is also a standard, one that ships with every copy of Mac OS. That reassures developers, and end users alike that it will be present in their users? systems and solutions can be built around it.
