Hi, 

i've just purchased a new mac and did a clean install from scratch of lightroom classic. 

I imported my old catalog and photos and everything went fine except for the custom color profiles i created with my Xrite colorchecker for my canon R5 : they are missing.

So i'd like to import them manually but i can't figure out where they are located on my old mac running Mojave. I've tried looking in application support and color sync but i can't find them.

 

Anyone have a clue ?

Thanks, 

Francois

Make sure you are looking in the correct folder. MacOS has another Library folder that is located directly on "Macintosh HD". The Users/Username/Library folder is hidden by default (https://iohk.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360011496773-Unhiding-the-Library-folder-on-macOS), so you may be looking in the wrong Library folder.

They should be in 'Macintosh HD/Users/YourUserName/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/CameraProfiles'

Hello, 

they should be in Macintosh HD/Users/YourUserName/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/CameraProfiles but they are not.

I tried to generate a new custom color profile on my new Macbook pro running MacOS 12.3 with the Xrite color checker camera calibration plug-in for lightroom classic but i can't figure out where the profile is located on my disk. 

I can see it in lightroom, so it must be somewhere, right? Searching the profile's name in finder doesn't help either...

Thanks for your help
