The ICC files must be placed in
the proper folder for your software to see and use them.
If you use Photoshop CS4 or earlier, or Photoshop Elements, restart your computer after following these instructions.
Step 1 - Extract / Unzip the file you downloaded from our website
On most PCs, the zipped file will look like a folder with a zipper. (see right)
1) Right click on the folder and choose "Extract All" then follow the instructions.
2) You will see a duplicate folder that is now unzipped. Delete the zipped folder.
3) Now double click on the new folder to see the contents.
After double clicking on the folder icon, you will see the contents of the folder. You will see an instructions document (either txt or PDF format) and the profile.
The profile will contain the name of the paper and your printer model. It will have a .ICC or .ICM file extension.
Note, your folder display may look different than the image at right. Regardless of how it looks, you will still see the two items mentioned above.
Step 2 - Install the profile
When you open the Now right click on the profile and select “Install Profile”.
If you do not see "Install Profile" then something has gone wrong. The most likely reason is that you have not unzipped / extracted the folder. Go back to Step 1 and recheck your work.
Restart Photoshop and the profile will be ready for use.
Next Steps - Using Profiles
After the profile is installed, you will use them during the print process, in the print dialog of your photo software. Click here for tutorials on how to use ICC printer color profiles.
Manual Installation for Windows
If you do not see the Install Profile selection, you either do not have
the file unzipped properly, or there is a glitch in your Windows installation.
In this case, just copy and paste the profile to the proper folder below.
ICC File Folder Location
NT, 2000, XP, Vista, Win7, Win8
Windows > System32 > Spool > Drivers > Color
98 & ME
Windows > System >Color
The "Windows" folder is reached by going to your root directory, usually the C Drive from My Computer or Computer menus.
