Setting up a brand new MacBook Pro (10.8.4) for my boss and I have installed CS5 Standard suite on there. He’s a standard user, not an admin. I have installed three ICC profiles in his user’s profile folder (HD>Users>[User]>Library>ColorSync>Profiles) but they are not showing up in the list of profiles that Photoshop or Indesign recognise, even after restarting the programs. I copied them to HD>Library>ColorSync>Profiles and HD>Library>Application Support>Adobe>Color>Profiles>Recommended also but with the same result. I made sure he had Read & Write access to the profiles and to the folders – still no luck. After that I repaired the permissions, again no success.
Copies of the same profile files are being used on various macs and PCs without any problems. Quark 9 can see them. When logged in as an admin PS/ID can see the profiles.
I’m confused - any help appreciated!
PS I also put the profiles into HD>System>Library>ColorSync>Profiles, without success.
On the machine having issues, run the Profile First Aid (part of the ColorSync utility).
Wow - that's done it. Thanks - I had forgotten about that utility. It found something wrong with each of the profiles - didn't make a note but it all sounded like minor stuff ("padding", "header") so I repaired them and they showed immediately in PS/ID. Guess Mountain Lion is more picky about profiles than Snow Leopard (what our other Macs run).
