Any of these can cause unexpected results. The first thing that can go wrong is that you are responsible for building yourself a color profile—unless you use a generic one (not recommended). You have to set up the profile correctly, and there is no guarantee that you will (even if you follow instructions) because the process involves your assessment of color by eye (if you don’t use a profiling/ calibration device). Because your assessment may not be perfect, the resulting profile may not be entirely accurate.

This is all nice in theory, but the sad fact is, it doesn’t necessarily work in practice. There are a lot of points in image processing where detours or errors can occur. Your profile can get dropped, changed, or ignored, or it can just plain be wrong. Profiling can occur where you don’t expect it, profiling can be compounded, and other profiles can be wrong, causing information in your image to be misinterpreted. Any of these can cause unexpected results. The first thing that can go wrong is that you are responsible for building yourself a color profile—unless you use a generic one (not recommended).

Upsampling 10 percent or even 20 percent may not be noticeable if the source image is sharp. Usually you will upsample only to make up small gaps between the resolution you have in an image and what you really need or to adjust borrowed image components (elements you are compositing from other images). Downsampling, while certainly damaging and compromising to image content, should be less noticeable in your results if you use the right sampling methods.
