The question title is not very representative but I couldn't think of a better one.
I have an image in JPEG format with a color profile embedded into it. If I open that image in a program that doesn't understand color profiles (say Microsoft's Paint for example) the color appear to be washed off, less vibrant.
I would like to know if it is possible to "apply" that color profile to the image so that the colors are displayed always vibrant. The resulting image would have no color profile embedded but it would look as it does when the current color profile is interpreted. So resizing it or converting it to a format which doesn't have color profile embedding capability wouldn't change the appearance of the image.
If possible, how could that be done?
