Where to place ICC Custom Printing Profiles in Big Sur to use them in Photoshop cc ?

I tried to add them in the hidden Library > Profiles 

Then in MacHD > User > Library > Recomended profiles

As it worked in other OS but here on Big Sur 11.0.1 the profiles never showed up in the Printer's profiles in the Adobe PS' printing window. (screen capture attached)

 

Thanx for helping !

Dos this help, this is not specific to OSX Big Sur, but I would hope it would work

Note also that profiles (particularly printer profiles from paper manufacturers) sometimes have differing 'internal' names

(which is what's shown in applications) so, the ones you're looking for may have names that differ to the profile filenames shown in the finder

if you double click on one of your offending profiles, the OSX colorsync utility should open and show you the naming.

 

On OSX there are quite a few ICC profile folders, here's a list:

 

Profiles the Mac OS requires:

/System/Library/ColorSync/Profiles

 

Profiles available to all logged in users and all [colour management savvy] applications

/Library/ColorSync/Profiles

 

Profiles limited to an individual logged in user

/Users/username/Library/ColorSync/Profiles

 

Profiles that are listed only in Adobe applications:

/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Color/Profiles

 

Profiles that are listed in the upper section of the profile lists in Adobe applications:

/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Color/Profiles/Recommended

 

Abstract Profiles available in Photoshop for Color Lookup layers

/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Color Profiles

 

I hope this helps
