I'm in the process of calibrating a color printer we have down in our Copy Center. It's just a Xerox. I'm confused about where to put any resulting .icc profile files, though. When I look at all that are available in InDesign when creating a PDF Preset, I can't actually find the files themselves that are listed anywhere on my Mac. For example, I can't find the profile "US Newsprint (SNAP 2007)" or "Euroscale Coated v2" anywhere on my Mac. My calibration software stores the profiles in \users\me\library\colorsync\profiles, and, some, but not all, show up in Indesign.
I don't know abpout the Mac, but on Windows color profiles are stored at he system level (equivalent to your colorsync folder) and also in the CommonFiles\Adobe\Color\Profiles folder and there is also a Recommended subfolder in there, which can move them to the top of the list.
Thanks, Peter. Yeh, I do recall seeing a "recommended" sub-folder somewhere. That's cool that it moves those to the top of the list. I didn't know that.
