I downloaded the ICC profile provided by Adobe. The download address is shown below.
After downloading, when you open the file, the names of the color profiles are listed in the Profile Information.pdf
There are US Web Coated (SWOP) v2 and US Web Uncoated v2.
However, when I open the CMYK folder, the file names are USWebCoatedSWOP.icc and USWebUncoated.icc.
That's why v2 is missing at the end .
Note that when you launch Photoshop, you have US Web Coated (SWOP) v2 .icc installed.
The file name should be US Web Coated (SWOP) v2 .icc, but it is USWebCoatedSWOP.icc.
I think Adobe accidentally uploaded the wrong file, is that correct?
I would be very grateful if you could give me the link to download the correct color profile.
If not, what's the difference between US Web Coated (SWOP) v2 .icc and USWebCoatedSWOP.icc?
ICC profiles have an “external name" = the file name, and also an "internal profile name" = the profile name displayed in many applications in the GUI.
As you can see from the image above, they are one and the same.
@Stephen_A_Marsh you beat me to it';~}
why the hell do profile makers do this! I've seen some REALLY misleading internal names!

Agreed, however, in this particular case, all Adobe needed to do is use v2 in the filename so that it was clear what it was. The internal profile name was correct, it was just that the filename was missing the key matching info.
True Stephen. In this case it was only a bit confusing. Just the "V2" when I commented, I was thinking really about ink and paper manufacturers and inkjet profiles. Some poor poster on here recently had downloaded a profile for Hilpoo inks / Epson 2880. He could not find the profile in Photoshop. It turned out the file name was descriptive but the internal name was shortened to "Epson 2880" - it's hard to know what inspired the profile makers decision to use such a non specific internal name.
have a good weekend
