There are countless .icc and .icm printer profiles inside my Photoshop printer profile drop down list. They came preinstalled. I don't know what most of them are for and so am affraid of deleted them. I want to reorganize them so that my self-made icc profiles appear on the top of the list. Easier to navigate.
How do I group my own profiles into a list that will appear at the top of the drop down?
Also, I notice there are profiles inside the PS dropdown that do not appear in the Windows spool folder (Windows/system32/spool/drivers/color) or (windows/sysWOW64/spool/drivers/color). Where are these coming from? Examples include:
Fujifilm 3510 (RDI) theater preview (by Adobe)
dot gain 10%
Also, should I be installing my own profiles inside the Windows system32 or Windows sysWOW64 directory?
Also, I created a subfolder inside the Windows/system32/spool/drivers/color directory and tried moving some old .icc profiles inside this folder. My intent was to hide or group icc's I don't use together. But when i restarted Photoshop, the order of the .ICC profiles did not change.
I don't understand the logic of how all these files are organized on the computer.
What version of Windows are you running? Profiles should install automatically by right clicking them when you have either downloaded or created them. To delete profiles go to the color management section of the control panel. Click on the All Profiles tab and you will see the full listing of all profiles. You can remove profiles by highlighting and clicking on the remove button. You rally shouldn't move profiles around otherwise. On my computer, all photo related profiles are in the Windows/system32/spool/drivers/color directory.
