Hi, hopefully I'm in the right place here (probably not XD).

I'd like to download the color profile Working CMYK U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) v2, but it looks like the download page on Adobe isn't working anymore. Was this option discontinued?

 

The page is accessed through here: https://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/iccprofiles/iccprofiles_win.html

 

I clicked on ICC profile downloads for End Users and agreed to the terms, but the next page won't load at all. I've tried it on Firefox and Chrome--both of which are up to date. Is there any current page where I can download this color profile?

Then you can find the profile in C > Windows > system32 > spool > drivers > color. That's the standard system folder where all icc profiles go - and where all applications find them if needed.

Do you actually have Photoshop installed? Then you also have US Web Coated SWOP. It's installed with the application.

I do, yes. At least the CC version, not the older standalone CS versions. Wish I could have bought CS6 before it was discontinued, but like most 19-year-olds back in 2012, I didn't have that kind of money. XD

 

I have kind of a roundabout process for creating images for print in which I used a seperate software to actually create the image--because it's a lot more intuitive for me than Photoshop and easier to navigate. I don't do a ton of digital art at this point in my life, and when I do I really take my time. Like, the last book cover I did took me almost a year from start to finish. XD Thankfully it wasn't for a client or anything--it was just a hobby project. I use Photoshop for finalizing the document and saving as a PDF (since the printing company I publish through only accepts PDFs for book covers. Also, the bar codes get anti-aliased in the software I use, so I have to fix them in Photoshop before sending them off to the printer).

 

I know it's not the most economical or logical way to do this, and if I were doing this as a profession I would definitely be working exclusively with Photoshop, but...for what I do, it works for me. Art isn't really my main hobby anymore, as you can probably gather.

Thank you! That helps. Is the file name just USWebCoatedSWOP.icc? I don't see v2 in the name, but that's the closest match so I assume that's what it is.
