I totally agree with Bojan, here is the answer marked correct.

An input-only color profile usually implies that is was scanned or captured on a device that embedded an input profile. An input profile is a profile that describes the device in ColorSync language you might say.  Photoshop likes to use Working Space color profiles, such as sRGB or AdobeRGB, etc. I would suggest that the file be converted to a working space profile first, then it should be usable in your workflow.

 

To convert a file to a working space profile, open the file in question, go to the Edit menu and scroll down to "Convert to Profile", choose your favorite space from the top group of working spaces. I would suggest sRGB or AdobeRGB. Save the file and it will be embedded in the file.

 

Cheers,

An "input" type ICC profile is made to describe a scanner or digital camera, basically. In most cases when working on such an image it's a good idea to convert it to a working space like Adobe RGB.

 

some info, about ICC profiles here

 

I hope this helps

Ah

2 things about your post,

 

1:

please use a more descriptive title, it helps get answers and for others to see the solution.

In this case, I'd suggest "Why do I get this message about "input profiles" in Photoshop 23.4.2"

 

2:

please place images inline in the text or we have to do tiresome clicking to see your image, there is a place icon in the row of icons above.

Screenshot 2022-08-01 at 16.43.12.jpg

You can use the (centre) image icon as shown above or even just drag and drop a screenshot into the text  

Makes it a lot easier to get help
