Hello, I am using LR Classic, version 11.01 under MacOS 12.0.1. I have the problem that the icc profiles installed under ~/Library/ColorSync/Profiles/ cannot be displayed / selected. Even installing the profiles in the system folder / Adobe application folder does not change anything. (The display profiles are displayed correctly)

Thanks for posting a link. Upon inspection in Apple ColorSync Utility, the profile is definitely CMYK, so it isn’t available in Lightroom Classic, as expected. In Photoshop, this profile is listed in all the places where CMYK profiles are made available.

Are these profiles CMYK profiles by any chance?

Lightroom does not support CMYK.

Peer, thank you for your answer.

 

No, I don't think the profiles are in CMYK. These are from a large photo service provider (Saal; saal-digital.de) and are also displayed correctly under the Windows version of LR.

Lightroom Classic requires you to select Profiles which will be shown in the Print module

 

  1. Print Job panel
  2. Color Managment section
  3. Profile: Choose "Other"
  4. Check the profiles you want to appear in Lightroom

You might try running Profile First Aid found in the ColorSync utility. It is possible those profiles do not meet spec and at the very least, the utility will pop an error. Also, can you upload one (zipped) to something like Dropbox so others can load and inspect?

Hi @all, thank you for your feedback.

 

@ Rikk: No, that is not the solution. This brings up the same file dialogue as in the development module; and the window is just empty.

 

@ thedigitaldog: the ColorSync tool does not find any errors when checking the profiles.

 

The profiles I want to use are freely available, here is the link to an example profile:

Kind Regards

Conrad, thank you for your feedback.

 

Sorry for the confusion I caused.

 

So that I can assess this directly myself for the future: how / where can I display the profile information shown?

They may be but in order to get to the bottom of the issue we need your installed profile to examine.

i'm a little confused about your answer. maybe i haven't understood your statement properly:

the profile you have given is exactly the profile I want to use and which is installed on my computer.
