Hello,

I'm having problems with my icc profile in photoshop. I'm using MAC OS Mojave version 10.14.6 with my new Canon Prograf 1000 printer

 

I've downloaded paper Brilliant Museum icc profile which is showing in: Library/Colorsync/profile/recommended file. However it does'nt show in my photoshop printer settings:

It shows default Canon paper settings.

 

I've also checked the System/library/profile setting but it won't let me copy/paste the profiles in there. It shows a transparant lock.

My prints are dull/washed out. the colour seems slightly saturated than my previous prints with an epson sure colour p600. I'm assuming I'm not using the correct colour profile with my paper?

 

Can someone advise/help?

Thanks

Hi

the Library/Colorsync/profile/recommended folder you mention is for the profiles that show up high in the list in the Photoshop.

If you want it to show in the 'Photoshop Manages Color' icc profile selection pulldown, then try placing your printer profile in the Library / Colorsync / Profiles folder.

 

Does it show now (be sure to restart Photoshop to be sure the lists are updated)?

 

If not, double click it in the Finder and that will open the Colorsync Utility. 

Click on 1: 'desc' to see the name tag

There you can check the name. Sometimes the "internal" (displayed in Photoshop) name differs to the filename that you see in the finder. 

I'd love someone to tell me why printer manufacturers sometimes do that 

 

I hope this helps

Bingo! That was my problem, not seeing in PS's profiles list an .icc I had installed in Library / Colorsync / Profiles folder.

Sure enough, opened in ColorSync Utility, it shows a different name than the actual .icc file's name. 

Is it okay if I change the name as listed in ColorSync (and thus in PS)?  Or will that cause some problem?

 

THANKS!
