    icm files that are not recognized by PS

    D800Ted Level 1

      I have an icm file for a DMP DS80 printer and it is not recognized by PS running on a MacBook Pro with OSx 10.9 . I have renamed the file to icc, placed it in Libraries>colorsync>profiles and libraries>colorsync>profiles>profiles directories with no luck. Any ideas?

          OSX 9 (Mavericks) and above: Depending on the printer profile, individual system configuration, and perhaps the phase of the moon, Adobe products (e.g. Photoshop, Lightroom - and particularly the Creative Cloud or CS6 versions) sometimes refuse to recognize profiles installed outside an Adobe-specific location. If a printer profile installed to either the system or per-user folder does not show up from within an Adobe product, move the profile to /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Color/Profiles/Recommended. A reboot may be required for the profile to be visible from within the Adobe application.


          The above Tech Note from Dry Creek Photo suggests Adobe Specfic locations in 10.9 and above.
