So, I use WHCC for my lab. They supply printer profiles. So far so good. I have put these profiles in both the system and user ColorSync Profiles folder. These profiles show up in my Color Sync Utility but they don't show up in Aperture??

 

Now what?

 

Thanks

    Just to make sure: have you closed and re-opened Aperture once the profiles were in place?

    Are these ICC profiles?  and do any profiles you've added show up in "View→Proofing Profile"?

     

    I can't think of any reason they shouldn't show up (as long as they are in the right place, have their file name extensions intact, and Aperture has been re-started).  Does WHCC list this as a known problem w. Aperture?

    Still fishing ... is Aperture installed in the Admin account?

     

    What version of OS X?

     

    And, again just to confirm, you put the profiles is this folder:

    ~/Users/username/Library/ColorSync/Profiles/

     

    You might check the permissions for that folder.

     

    Ap3 does not sort the profiles (afaict).  It groups them (not terribly usefully).

    Hey Mike,

     

    Did you ever sort this out? I'm having the exact issue.

    Thanks for the response Mike. I do like the software and I would like to stay within it as much as possible, but it seems like there are some things that will just take a little longer.
