In the past (I no longer use photoshop) I would make a copy of the screen 
profile in the normal virtual WIndows profiles directory and tell Photoshop to 
use it and ACE for the screen.  Worked OK and without lose of functionality 
like soft proofing.  

It would be better if wine was smart enough to get the correct profile XAtom 
and handle it automatically.  But setting it up manually is not a huge burden.
