Who provided you with that profile?
It was installed with photoshop cc. But it only works if the source image is in cmyk because otherwise you cannot choose this profile.
I don't have it and never heard of it (and I've had every Photoshop version since 6.0). It has to come from somewhere else.
In any case, if checking TAC is what you want this is most easily done on a press-ready PDF in Acrobat, or by using the Info panel in Photoshop.
i don't think that some other application or whatever provided this profile, since it has the same creation date as all other photoshop cc related files, and if i open it with colorsync it says that it is created by adobe.
maybe it is because we have the german version of photoshop? although that doesn't makes sense to me ...
and no, checking TAC is not what i want. i'm just curious about that profile and especially its purpose. i'm pretty sure it is there for a reason but i can't find any information about it.
TAC 400% to K100%. It is just a preview.
When used in conjunction with the Threshold layer, it is useful.
Japanese version, but please try.

I tried to follow your tutorial for highlighting pixels over a particular TAC, but "Total Ink Preview" is not available anymore in the dropdown menu for Device Link in the Color LookUp palette on Photoshop CC 2015.5. Anybody knows why and how to get this feature back?
