I’ve been looking at where my .icc profiles are stored on my Mac (in preparation for the arrival of Spyder2 Pro so I can calibrate my monitor properly) but am somewhat confused…
Ok, there are the three OSX places for profiles: System/Library/Colorsync/Profiles, Library/Colorsync/Profiles & User/Library/Colorsync Profiles
But this does not explain why I seem to have duplicates/triplicates of most of my profiles - mostly those added by Adobe CS1 & CS2 it would appear!
My Library/Colorsync/Profiles folder also contains 4 alias folders (profiles, recommended, profiles alias, & recommended alias) each apparently containing another set of the adobe profiles!
There also appear to be more copies of the Adobe profiles in the Adobe folders application support.
The only profiles with just one copy are my monitor profile and a set of Epson r2400 profiles for special papers (which I added by hand)
I am assuming that loading Adobe CS2 as well as CS1 was the culprite - but which copies do I delete - and where should my real profiles live so they are available to colorsync, CS2 and Lightroom?
Am I right in thinking that I should keep the latest versions of any duplicates I have?
thanks in anticipation
