Sometimes PhotoShop throws an error and tells me it can not place a document I’m dragging into another document because the current document has an input-only color profile.
This is an annoying error but an easy and quick PhotoShop issue to resolve!
To change your color profile from input-only in PhotoShop, go to Edit > Convert to Profile.
Under Destination Space, select Working RGB (digital photo) or Working CMYK (print photo). Finally, click the OK button.
The above-listed steps will change your file’s color profile so that once again, you can drag and drop other files into your document, and the input-only color profile error message will no longer be displayed.
I hope this quick fix works for you, too.
