Converting paper profile: PC to MAC
« on: May 09, 2006, 10:38:33 AM »

I use EyeOne Match3 to profile different papers I use in the office. I work on a PC, my wife, a MAC. Does anyone know what is necessary to use/convert a profile from a PC to a MAC? Since my wife is a designer, her paper use is mostly Epson, but occasionally for mock-ups, she'd like to use some of my specialty papers from Hahnemuhle, Moab and Crane.

Thanks,
Nemo

Unless I'm missing something (always possible!!!) paper profiles are identical for both Macs and PC!

The are cross platform and assuming both systems printers/drivers and so on are set the same, you can use the profile in both places. You might want to add a .ICC extension to the profiles.

I thought some v.old MAC OS versions were not compatible with Windows profiles.
What version of MAC OS are you using ?

OK, I had this problem last year and couldn't understand what exactly what was going on?? I finally found out that the problem was related to the added information required by your Mac (not PC) these are dataforks and headers not used by PC's.
The trick is to create the profile using your Mac and then the profile will work on both PC and Mac.
Therefore when you use the profile on the Mac the info will be there and it will be disregarded by the PC.
PC and Mac profiles are identical!!!Just how there used which is different.

Good luck!!!

I believe it was OS 9 and older that used it's own kind of profile. Profiles are exchangeable between OS X and Windows.
